Window Blinds Measuring Guide

How To Measure for Blinds

These measuring instructions apply to all types of blinds.

  • For accurate measurements always use a metal tape measure
  • Take measurements in millimetres
  • Choose whether you want your blind to fit inside the recess of your window or hang outside the recess overlapping the window
  • Always specify the width first, followed by the drop
  • Measure the width of the window recess in three places as shown below
  • Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill in three places, as shown below
  • Use the smallest measurement
  • We will make all adjustments to ensure your blind fits perfectly
