If you’ve decided to get new blinds for your windows, there are generally two options available: off the shelf and made to measure. Off the shelf are the ready made ones, produced to a standard size, packed and set to be installed on your windows. The made to measure blinds are specially created for your windows. With a wide range of fabrics and patterns available, you can design your own made to measure blinds.
Here is what you need:
Cloth tapes are not recommendable in this situation as they can easily bend and provide inaccurate sizes.
You can measure your window in centimetres, millimetres or inches.
Your blind will be made by following the exact measured sizes and no allowances will be made.
The recess size will be reduced to make sure that your made to measure blind fits within your window’s opening.
If you are getting new vertical slats, you have to measure and calculate the overall finished hem to hem size. Start measuring from under the hook where the vertical slat will hang from.
When you are measuring your windows for roller blinds, please note that the width of the cloth or fabric will be 3cm narrower than the exact width of the blind. Therefore, measure the recess as above and place the order as an exact size.
