Measuring For Exact Blind Size


You should follow these instructions if:

  • You are installing your blinds outside of the recess.
  • You are fitting your blinds within a recess but want to make your own deductions.
  • Measuring Exact Blind SizeMeasure the *blind width* of where you'd like your blind to be. Note down the measurement.
  • Measure the blind drop: From the top of where you want your blind to be to the bottom. Note down the measurement.
  • To ensure minimum light gaps and maximum privacy, we recommend that your blind overlaps each of the four sides of the recess by at least 50 mm.
  • When you enter your measurements on our site, select size type as "exact blind size". We will not make any deductions. We will make the blind exactly to your measurements.

Please Note: when measuring for and ordering roller blinds, "exact blind size" is different to "fabric size". For width, exact blind size is total width including both fabric and brackets. Details about fabric size, can be found here: "What is Fabric Size".

Should you have any concerns when measuring your window, please contact us via e-mail ([email protected]) or on 0161 494 9616 (9am - 5pm Monday-Friday).
