Measuring for Vertical Blinds

Are you measuring for your bay window?

Measuring for Inside Recess Blinds

If you’re placing your blinds inside the recess of the window, follow these instructions.

Step 1

Measure the Width

Measure the width of your recess at the top, middle and bottom. Use the smallest measurement as your width.

Step 2

Measure the Drop

Measure the drop of your recess top to bottom. Taking a measurement on the left side, middle and right side. Use the smallest measurement as your drop.

Step 3

Enter your Measurements

Enter the width and drop measurements into your chosen product, and select inside recess as your installation method.

For inside recess we will make a small deduction to your blinds width so that it is able to accommodate the brackets required for installation.

Key Notes

Factor in Obstructions

If you have an obstruction within your recess, such as tiles, measure between these points and use that measurement as your width.

Check your Recess Depth

For a perfect fit inside your recess, ensure that there is a minimum of 5 cm of clearance between the front of your window recess and any obstructions.

Measuring for Exact Size Blinds

If you’re placing your blinds on the outside of your window recess, follow these instructions.

Step 1

Measure the Width

Decide on the amount of overlap you want your blind to have on either side of the window recess. Measure the width between these 2 points.

Step 2

Measure the Drop

Decide on the amount of overlap you want your blind to have at the top and bottom of the window recess. Measure the drop between these 2 points.

Step 3

Enter your Measurements

Enter the width and drop measurements into your chosen product, and select exact size as your installation method.

No deductions are made to your blinds when you select exact size.

Key Notes

Width Overlap

We recommend that you have a total overlap of 10 cm (5 cm on each side). The more overlap, the less light is able to come into the room. If your main goal is to block out as much light as possible, more than 5 cm on either side may be required.

Top Overlap

At the top, we recommend you to have a minimum of 7 cm of overlap. This is to comfortably accommodate the headrail.

Bottom Overlap

If your window sill extends outwards by more than 5 cm, we recommend you measure the drop at this point.
