Handy Hints

All of our blinds are made-to-measure. Please follow the instructions carefully. Please make sure you take your measurements using a STEEL rule or tape.

Take all your measurements in millimetres (mm).

  • Inches can be converted to millimetres by multiplying your measurement in inches by 25.4.
  • Centimetres can be converted to millimetres by multiplying your measurement in centimetres by 10.

When measuring, always look out for things like window handles or tiles and take their position into account if necessary. This is so you can be sure of the perfect fit.

When taking measurements please follow this rule to help- "measure once, measure again and measure again"!

All our blinds can be fitted into the face of your window frame or wall, or into the top of the lintel. This gives you complete control over the positioning of your blind.
