How to Measure for Vertical & Roller Blinds

Measuring for Vertical Blinds

The first thing that you have to do when measuring for your new Roman blinds is to identify whether your window has a recess and determine whether you would like your blinds to fit inside or outside of this space.

Measuring Width
If you would like your blind to fit within the recess measure the width of the recess in three different positions and make a note of the smallest figure. This will be the figure that you need to provide us with.

Please note that we will make a small deduction from the width you have entered (usually about 10mm). This is to make sure that your blind fits perfectly within the recess and that it can operate properly within that space.

You do not need to make any deductions yourself when measuring your recess! We will do that for you.

Measuring Length/drop
To determine the length or drop of your blinds simply measure from the top of your recess to the windowsill in three different positions and provide us with the narrowest point.

For vertical blinds we will also deduct 15mm from the drop. This is because for vertical blinds the fabric needs to be lifted from the sill/floor for them to hang beautifully. You do not need to make any deductions yourself when measuring your recess! We will do that for you.

For Exact Measurement (Outside of the Window)

For Exact Measurement (Outside of the Window)

Measuring Width
On the outside of the window (ie exact blind size) simply measure where you would like the blind to sit and supply that measurement.

Measuring Length
On the outside of the window (ie exact blind size) simply measure where you would like the blind to hang to and supply that measurement.

We recommend that your blinds overlap the recess of the window by at least 5cm (2”) on all four sides.

For exact fitting blinds only

Already have a blind that fits perfectly? Simply measure its width and drop and provide those measurements.
