Check out our video below that will give you some helpful tips and hints when measuring for your new blinds at home!
This simple guide will show you how to measure for your custom made blinds.
If you have any questions about measuring your window, call 0800 483 638 or contact us.
You can choose to have your blind made to fit the inside of the jam of your window or it can hang on the outside architrave.
For an inside fit (the most popular and what we recommend), the measurement you need is from jamb to jamb. We will make your blind to fit into that space perfectly. There’s no need for you to make any adjustments because we allow for this. If you don’t measure from jamb to jamb and try and allow a space and then give us the measurement, your finished blinds will be too small.
Follow these instructions if you want your blind to hang inside:
NB: You will NOT need to make any adjustments to the width or length of your blind measurements. Let us do this!
For an outside fit, the measurement you need to take is from the outside edge of the architrave from side to side (as in the picture). We will make your blind exactly to these measurements.
Follow these instructions if you want your blind to hang outside:
NB: Be sure to let us know if your measurement is where you are wanting the fabric to finish (this is called fabric finished size). If you don't specify that it is a fabric finish size we then take those measurements & make the deductions required to allow for the brackets & controls (outside fit)Make Enquiry
