Measuring your windows to decide which size of vertical blind to order is easy. Just follow these simple steps. Please use a metal tape measure to take measurements and use centimetres to the nearest 0.1cm.
We have created a document showing detailed instructions on measuring your bay window for our vertical blinds.
Used when the vertical blind is to be fitted inside the window recess. When selecting ‘Recess Size’, we will make all deductions.
When selecting ‘Exact Blind Size’, no deductions will be made. Exact Blind Size is normally used selected when the blind is to sit outside of the recess.
Exact Blind Width (also known as pin width or finished blind width):
Exact Blind Drop:
When selecting Louvres Only, no deductions will be made. Used only for the replacement of louvres when you have the headrail and fixings already.
All of our louvres are 89mm (3.5”) in width.
When 2 vertical blinds are to be hung in one window recess, we would recommend taking the measurement of the recess as normal.
Then if it is an even split, halve the measurement and deduct 1cm from each.
Eg: If the recess is 196cm, half is 98cm less 1cm. The blinds would be ordered at 97cm wide EXACT BLIND SIZE.
As Exact Blind Size is being used, when measuring the drop, take the recess measurement as above and deduct 1cm for clearance.
Eg: Recess drop is 176.5cm, less 1cm. The blinds would be ordered at 175.5cm EXACT BLIND SIZE
