How to measure for your new Wooden Blinds
Recess Measuring Instructions
Step 1: Measure the width of your recess in three locations. The top, middle and bottom. Record the smallest measurement.
Step 2: Measure the drop of your recess in three locations. The left, middle and right. Record the smallest measurement.
Step 3: Use the smallest measurement for the width and the drop when placing your order and don’t forget to select the ‘recess’ option.
Hint: Check your window recess for any obstructions such as tiles or picture rails. If you do have an obstruction, make sure you measure off this point. A deduction of 12mm will be made to the overall width to ensure an easy, yet snug fit. We will supply a matching straight cut valance to cover the headrail, this will be made to the sizes given to ensure a perfect cover.
Exact Blind Size Measuring Instructions
Step 1: Measure the outside of your window recess from one side to the other, from the point you want the edge of the blind to start to the other.
Step 2: Measure the outside of your window recess from the top to the bottom, from the height at which you want the headrail to sit, down to the point you want the bottom bar to stop.
Step 3: Use the ‘Exact Size’ option when placing your order.
Hint: We recommend a minimum of a 70mm overlap past the window recess, that’s 35mm on each side. This ensures total coverage of the recess. This blind will be made to your exact measurements with no deductions, the brackets will add approximately 3mm to the total width and is additional to the size given. We will supply a colour matching valance made slightly wider than the blind, which will also include side returns to cover the ends of your headrail. For more information, please see here.
