Fitting a Blind Outside the Window Recess – Tips on Measuring

 

When preparing to measure up for a new blind make sure you have the following items to hand:

  • step ladder
  • measuring tape
  • pen and paper

A steel measuring tape is easier to use when taking measurements without assistance and provides a more reliable reading than cloth or plastic tapes which can tend to stretch. Before measuring look for any obstructions that may encroach on the area the blind is to be fitted, for instance window handles or cables, etc.

   
Consider how much overlap you want on either side of the window and where you want the blind header mechanism to sit above the window. If you have radiators below the window sill try to avoid the blind touching or overlapping and measure for your blind to sit between the sill and the top of the radiator.

Measure the exact area you want the vertical blind to cover across the window from right to left and add approx 6mm either side to ensure that the blind covers the area you intended. Repeat this process for the vertical measurement without the addition of the 12mm as for the horizontal measurement. Remember to take into account whether there are any obstructions below the window sill.

Be sure to double-check your measurements and note them down so you don’t have to try to remember them when you come to order the vertical blind.

Tip: If you are ordering blinds for windows that appear to be the same size always measure each window as there may some variations in size.
