Measuring Roller Blinds
There are 2 options when measuring for a roller blind:
1. Inside Recess Fitting
This is the measurement you need for when you want the blind to fit inside the recess
We just need measurement a to b for the width and c to d for the height
We would advise measuring in 3 places for both the width (a to b) and the drop (c to d) and using the smallest measurement
Don't make any deductions to your measurements, we will do this for you after you've ordered by taking 3.5cm off your given width which will ensure the perfect fitting of your blind
If you want the blinds making to an exact size please tick the outside recess fitting option as we then make to the exact sizes you provided.
2. Outside Recess Fitting
This is the measurement you need for when you want the blind to fit outside your window recess. The measurement you take here is the exact size you want the blind to be made to
Measuring the width (e to f) we recommend 7cm wider each side of the window to help minimize outside light.
Measuring the height (g to h) we recommend 10cm above and below if there is no obstacles in the way.
