How to Measure Roman Blinds

Recess Fitting for Roman Blinds

This is the measurement you need to to make if you want the blind to fit inside the window recess. Measure the full width & height of the 'recessed' area (wall to wall), as shown in the diagram below taking the smallest measurement.

Tips

  • use a steel metal tape measure for accuracy and measure in centimetres to the nearest millimetre.
  • measure in 3 places for both 'width' and 'height' then use the smallest measurements for ordering. Always double check your measurements!
  • don't make any deductions for 'recess' specified blinds because the factory will do that to ensure the blind fits perfectly.
  • look out for any obstructions such as window handles, tiles, dado rails etc and take their position into account if neccessary.
 

Exact Fitting for Roman Blinds

This is the measurement you need to take if you want the blind to hang outside of the window recess.  We will make the blind to your exact measurements specified with no deductions.

 

Tips

  • measure the exact width of the area you would like the blind to cover. To minimize light leakage we would recommend an overlap of 6cm either side & 7cm at the top of the window.
  • the overlap at the bottom of the window is a matter of personal choice.
  • look out for any obstructions such as tiles, dado rails, radiators etc and take their position into account if neccessary.
  • Important Note: DDetermine the type of fixing you wish to make, Face Fix or Top Fix and take into consideration the stacking height of the product.
