How to measure for face fit blinds
How do you measure up for face fit blinds?
Correct measuring is the key to easy, hassle-free installation. So, it’s worth taking the time to get it right.
Before we get started with the guide, you’ll need a metal tape measure, a pencil and paper, and if required, a sturdy step ladder to get to high places.
Got them? Great, let’s get started!
Face fitted blinds sit outside the window frame recess (covering the frame itself). It’s important to note the measurements for the width of a face fitting blind will be from bracket to bracket.
To measure for a face fit blind, first, measure the outside width of the window or door, recording the exact width you want your blind manufactured at. For windows with architraves, we recommend measuring to the outer edge of the frame on each side. For frameless windows or doors, we suggest extending about 50mm past the recess edges on each side (as per the visual below).
Next measure the outside height of the frame, starting from the point at which you’d like your blind to sit above the window or door, down to the point at which you’d like your blind to finish.
Once you’ve recorded your measurements, head to the relevant product page’s ‘Customise & Order’ area to enter your details and complete your order. Then, after just a few weeks, we’ll send your fabulous new custom-fit blinds to your door.
