How to Measure Blinds

Measuring Inside a Recess

Width

Measure the width of the window recess in three places: the top, middle and bottom. Use the smallest measurement.

Height

Measure the height of the window recess in three places: at both sides and in the middle. Use the smallest measurement.


Measuring Outside a Recess

Width

Measure the width of your recess and add to it the measurement of how far you’d like the blind to finish either side of the recess. This would usually be approximately 10cm either side of the recess.

Height

Measure from where you want the top of the blind to sit to where you would like the blind to finish. This would usually be approximately 10cm above and below the recess. Be sure to consider any protrusions or obstructions too. 


Fixing Height

Inside Recess

Outside Recess

Measure, to the nearest centimetre, from the where the top of the blind will be positioned to the floor. This measurement is used to adhere to child safety regulations.

This is the measurement, to the nearest centimetre, from where the top of the blind will be positioned to the floor. We use this measurement to understand the approximate chain length required.
