  • Top-tips for measuring for window blinds

    Here at Blinds Boutique we’re incredibly proud of the quality of our collection of gorgeous made to measure window blinds!  To ensure your blinds look fantastic, a perfect fit is essential and this is why we strongly encourage our customers to read our guide to measuring before ordering blinds.

    Measuring for up for window blinds isn’t half as daunting as it sounds and all you’ll need is a few simple bits of kit to get you started: a metal tape measure, paper, a pencil and something safe to stand on should do it!  We specify a metal tape measure simply because fabric or plastic ones tend to stretch and it can be harder to get an accurate measurement.

    Blinds can be fitted to either the outside or the inside of a window recess and there are different measuring methods for each option.  If you want your blind to fit outside the recess, you’ll need to begin by deciding how much you want it to overlap; we recommend that the overlap should be at least 50mm on each side.

    You’ll then need to very carefully measure the width and the drop – take measurements in several places and take down the smallest measurement to the nearest millimetre.

    Measruing for blinds to fit inside a window recess is also pretty simple and you’ll need to begin by checking that the blind won’t be obstructed in any way by window handles or tiles.  Then you will need to measure the width and drop – again this needs to be done in several places and the smallest measurement to the nearest millimetre is the one to note down.

    Simple!  As you can see, measuring for blinds really is straightforward!  For full details of how to measure, we recommend you take a look at our handy measuring guide which includes helpful pictures.  Bay windows are a little trickier to measure and if you’d like to buy blinds for a bay window, we recommend contacting our customer service team by email for expert advice and guidance.
