How To Measure Guides


Measuring for blinds is simple!

  • Always use a steel measuring tape and measure in millimeters.
  • Windows are often not square.
  • Measure all your windows even if they appear to be the same.
  • Decide if you want your blinds to sit within the reveal of your window (inside mount), or on your architrave (outside mount).
  • If you require an inside mount ensure that there is sufficient space for the blind to sit inside the reveal.
  • Specialty shapes and skylights please email a diagram  to 
  • If you are unsure ask!

Measuring for the inside mount:

  • Measure the exact window opening size. Do not make any deductions. We will make allowances to allow free movement of the blind within the window reveal.
  • Width: Measure in three (3) places (top, middle and bottom), and use the narrowest measurement.
  • Height: Measure in three (3) places and use the tallest measurement.

Measuring for the outside mount:

  • You determine the exact width you want your blind. The factory will make your blind the exact size you specify
  • .The width measurement is bracket to bracket for rollers. The actual fabric width is approximately 28-30mm narrower than the bracket to bracket measurement
