Taking Account of the Window Recess for Vertical Blinds

Whether replacing existing types of blinds, curtains or shutters, choosing vertical blinds can require minimal planning and preparation. Although several different types of window blinds are sold in DIY stores in standard sizes, homes are often not ‘standard’. It is also unlikely that surfaces in any home will be dead straight or level all the way down and across. This applies particularly to areas such as window recesses. Since made measure vertical blinds is often the best and most practical option for many householders, in order to have them made, the window recess first needs to be measured. One of the advantages of vertical blinds is that the measuring of the window recess does not require a visit from a blind specialist and is something that can be carried out relatively easily and quickly by the householder themselves.

It may be the case that getting the measuring process right for an inside the recess vertical blind is particularly crucial. The very edges of the outer slats of the blind will need to fit snugly but comfortably inside the recess, and still block out as much light as possible when they are in the closed position. Bearing in mind how unlikely it is that the distance between either vertical side of the recess will be identical, the most sensible method is to take a number of measurements all the way down e.g. in 3 places (top, middle and bottom), and to take the narrowest of these as the main width measurement.

For outside the recess vertical blinds the measuring process is still important since having a blind which is noticeably too wide can look bad. In most cases however there is unlikely to be enough of a slant on the vertical sides of the window recess to cause problems when it comes to making blinds to fit. It should simply be a case of providing the vertical blind company with the measurement for the widest part of the horizontal width of the window recess. It is however important to take notice of how much room vertically there is between the top of the window recess and the ceiling since this area will need to house the part of the vertical blind which the slats are suspended from. If you have any doubts, most reputable vertical blind makers would be happy to answer your questions over the phone.
