Measuring for blinds with chain pull

Inside mount _

Step 1 – First, using a metal tape measure, measure across the top of the window, the middle, and the bottom.

Step 2 – The narrowest measurement of the three is the measure we call the recess width.

Step 3 – Then, do the same for the drop — measuring from the top of the recess down to the bottom of the window sill. This will be the finished size for the height of the blind.

These will be the dimensions when placing the order on our website.

Check that your recess is deep enough to fit the blind into, also bearing in mind any obstructions such as window or handles.

Please note that the fabric width will always be narrower than the recess width, leaving a gap of approximately 2 – 2,5 cm on each side of the blind.

Outside mount _

Step 1 – First, using a metal tape measure, measure across the top of the window, the middle, and the bottom. For outside mount please add 10 cm to the biggest width dimension to minimize light leakage.

Step 2 – Then, do the same for the drop — measuring from the top of the recess down to the bottom of the window sill. The overlap at the bottom of the blind is a matter of personal choice but please take into account obstacles such as radiators.

This will be the finished size for the height of the blind.

Use the width measure and the finished height of the blind measure when placing your order on our website.

If you have a window frame around the window, please take this into account and adjust the width accordingly.
