Blind Measuring Instructions
You will need a metal tape measure cloth tapes are not accurate enough and a pen and paper to write down the sizes. You can measure your window in centimetres, millimetres, or Inches. The blinds can be ordered as Blind, Fabric or Recess sizes. Please be clear at the point of ordering.
How to measure Roller Blinds.
Decide wether you want the blind to fit on the inside or outside of the recess.
Measure the inside width of your window at the top, plaster to plaster.. This is your Recess width.
Measure the inside length or drop of your window. This is your Recess drop. We will ensure the blind fits within the opening. However, please ensure that there are no obstructions part of the way down the window, IE Dado rails, half tiled windows or telephone sockets etc.
Occasionally customers prefer their blinds to fit on the outside of the recess or on a door. These can be ordered as “fabric width” meaning the visable fabric will be the width you order. The Outside edges of the brackets will finish approxamately 35mm wider than this measurement. It is not an exact measurement because one end of the roller has a sprung pin which allows for a little flexibility. 35mm will be the MAX extra width the brackets will be compared to the fabric. If you want the roller barrel to be more than 35mm wider than the fabric please specify. We can do this and you will simply slide the fabric along the tube to its required position once the blind is installed. Please be aware however that the roller tube will be visable when the blind is fitted unless you order a closed cassette to house it in.
Finally, please specify which type of operating chain you require, which side you want it on and and Scallops or eyelets etc. This is usually easier done with a conversation so don’t hesitate to call.
