How to measure for vertical blinds
How do you measure up for vertical blinds?
Correct measuring is the key to easy, hassle-free installations, so it’s worth taking the time to get it right.
Good ol’ fashioned vertical blinds are now available with modern customisable options such as sewn-in weights.
To measure for vertical blinds you’ll need a metal tape measure, a pencil, paper, and a sturdy step ladder to get to high places.
Recess fit vertical blinds
Recess fit is where the blind sits neatly the inside of the window frame.
To measure for recess fitting blinds simply measure the width of the inside of your window.
Measure across the top, middle and bottom in millimetres and record the smallest measurement. This will ensure the blind will sit comfortably inside the window frame.
Next measure the exact height of the window recess. Again take three measurements. The left, the middle and the right and record the smallest measurement.
Face fit for vertical blinds
Face fit is where the blind sits on the outside of the window frame.
To measure for face fitting blinds first measure the outside width of the window frame.
Measure across the top, middle and bottom in millimetres and this time record the largest measurement.
Next measure the outside height of the window, starting from the point at which you’d like your blinds to sit above the window, down to the point at which you’d like your blinds to finish.
Again take three measurements. The left, the middle and the right and record the largest measurement.
Once you’ve recorded your measurements head over to the product page, customise your order and we’ll send you beautiful new blinds perfectly fitted for your window.
