How to Measure Your Window Blinds

Measuring for your new blinds couldn’t be simpler. It’s an easy way to save lots of money and takes just minutes; you’ll wish you’d done it sooner! All you have to do is follow our easy, step-by-step video guides below.

Tips for measuring

  • Measure in 3 places for both the width and the drop, use the smallest measurements
  • Use a metal tape measure, cloth/plastic measuring tapes can stretch and give you inaccurate measurements

Recess/inside Measuring
This is the measurement you need to take if you want your blind to fit inside the window recess. Measure the full width and height of the recess [the size of the hole if you like] and we will make the appropriate deductions to ensure a perfect fit.

facefix/outside Measuring
This is the measurement you need to take if you want the blind to hang outside the recess overlapping the window.
