bamboo roller blinds

Measuring

The standard measurement of the blind is the measurement of the actual bamboo material from edge to edge. The fixtures on the top of the blind (metal loops) measure another 2 cm. If you want the blinds to hang inside a window frame, without having a roll at the bottom, then subtract at least 2 cm from the length of the blinds.

Example _ The window frame measures 150 cm from top to bottom. The blinds must be cut at a maximum of 148 cm if you would like them to hang freely without being rolled up at all. However, we advice to substract a little more, depending on how you mount the hooks (vertically or horizontally).

If you would like the blinds to hang within the window frame and go all the way to the edges width-wise, subtract 0.5 cm from the measurements of the window frame on each side – then the blinds can be rolled up and down without hitting anything.

Example _ The window frame measures 120 cm in width. The blinds must measure 119 cm in order to be rolled up and down without touching the window frame.

In an old building with crooked windows, we generally recommend leaving 1 cm on either side. You can always substract more than this, depending on your taste, leaving more of the window frame in sight.

Bamboo is a delicate and light material, and when rolled up the roll of the blind is small. For the longest blinds, the roll measures approx. 10 cm in diameter.

The cord pull is placed on the right side of the blinds. It is possible to have the cord pull placed on the left side instead for a surcharge, please get in touch when your situation requires this.

 

Trimming

The blinds can be trimmed both in width and length. The trimming can be selected when you select the product.

When you consider trimming the blind length-wise, be advised that we recommend some extra length (about 10 cm) to hang as a roll and trimming might not be necessary. The roll is visually appealing and keeps the blinds in position by adding some weight at the bottom, this avoids fluttering when the window is open. Also, keep in mind that the blinds might stretch a little over time. 

We do not recommend adjusting the blinds yourself.
