Please read the guide below and let us know
which type of measurement you are providing:
If you want to fit your blind
within the window recess as shown above, please provide us
with Recess Size measurements.
To do this you will need to measure inside the
window recess from wall to wall for the width and from ceiling to window sill
for the drop.
You should take the measurements three time to
make sure you get the most accurate sizes - at the top, at the middle and at
the bottom for the width and at the top, the middle and the right for the
The three sizes to give us are the smallest of
the three measurements for both the width and the drop.
Make sure you do not make any
reductions from these sizes yourself. We'll make your blinds slightly
smaller on the width than the sizes you give us to make sure that it fits into
the space with enough room for it to be installed easily and so the brackets
don't scrape the walls, while still covering as much of the window as
possible. The adjustment size will differ depending on the type of blind you
choose and whether you are adding a cassette to cover the roll - our team will
be happy to confirm the reduction amount for you if you advise which blind you
Remember that the width of the fabric will
always be slightly less than the total width of the blind to allow for the
size of the mechanism and brackets - the difference is usually approximately
Fabric Size or Blind Size
If you want to fit your blind outsdie of the
window recess we recommend overlapping the window by at least 10cm on the
width and 10cm on the drop.
You can then specify whether you want us to use
these measurements as the Fabric Size or the Blind Size.
If you choose Fabric Size we will use your
measurements as the size of the fabric part of the blind only. This means that
the size of the brackets/mechanism/cassette will be in addition to the sizes
you provide us - this is usually 3.5cm but our team will be happy to confirm
the amount for you before ordering.
If you choose Blind Size we will use your
measurements as the size of the total blind including the brackets and
mechanism (and cassette if ordered). This means that the fabric part of the
blind will be slightly smaller than the sizes you provide. The amount of
difference varies depending on the type of blind ordered - it is usually 3.5cm
but our team will be happy to confirm the amount for you before ordering.
