Blinds

Option 1 – Fitting the blind inside a recess

Measure inside the recess at the top (A) the
position as to where you want your blind to
fit. Then at the bottom (B) in several places
recording the smallest measurement. This
will allow for obstacles such as dado rails
and protruding tiles.
• Measure inside drop in several places (C),
again recording the smallest measurement.
• Upon receiving these sizes, we will make the
necessary allowances to ensure a snug
fit. Measuring and ordering window
blinds in this method is termed as “Recess
Size”.

Option 2 – Fitting a blind outside a recess

If you would like your blinds to hang on the
outside of your window recess, you will need to
decide on the finished size that you prefer. We
suggest that a blind should project at least
75mm over the whole recess e.g. 37.5mm on
either side.
• Measure and record the finished width
and drop that you require including
the additional 75mm minimum.
• This method can also be used for measuring
for Curtains when there isn’t a curtain pole
/ track already fitted.
• Upon receiving these sizes, we will make
your blinds exactly to it. Measuring
and ordering window blinds in this
method is termed as “Blind Size”.

Option 3 – Covering windows on doors

If you would like a Roller Blind to cover a door
with a window within it, for example a kitchen
or conservatory door, then an ‘exact’ fabric width
is required (A).
• Measure and record the finished fabric
width and drop that you require
including any additional fabric overlap of
the glass that you desire.
• Note: You must allow an extra 36mm of width
beyond your fabric size to accommodate
the Roller Blind controls and brackets (B)
(18mm either side). Most door frames have
enough width to be able to allow for this.
• Upon receiving these sizes, we will make
your blinds exactly to it. Measuring
and ordering Roller Blinds in this
method is termed as “Cloth Width Size”.
