Standard Windows

Recess Size

This is the measurement you need to make if the blind needs to fit inside the window recess. Measure the width and the drop in three different positions ensuring you provide us with the smallest measurement.

We will make any necessary deductions to ensure the blind fits neatly within the recess of the window.

Exact Size

An exact size blind is also known as 'pin width' or 'finished blind width'. This is the measurement you need to make if the blind needs to hang outside the recess overlapping the window. Decide how much you wish to overlap the recess at each side, we recommend at least 7.5cm at each side as well as the top and bottom so as to minimise as much external light as possible.
