Measuring Guide



Ensure that the recess your blind is going into is not obstructed in any way, so the blind can hang freely when fully extended. Look out for protruding window handles, dado rails, junction boxes and tiles.

Measure the width and the drop. We recommend you do this in several places to allow for any slight size variation and note down the smallest measurements to the nearest millimetre. If you prefer you can measure in inches.


Decide how much you want to overlap the blind on all sides – we recommend approximately 5 cm (2 inches).

Carefully measure the width and the drop from and take the smallest measurement to the nearest millimetre. If you prefer, you can measure in inches.

Remember: on roller blinds, the fabric will be approximately 4cm less than the overall width, which you’ll need to allow for.
