MEASURING GUIDE
HOW TO MEASURE
After choosing  the type of blind you require , you need to decide if you would like to fit the blind inside the recess ( recess measurement ) or outside the recess (exact measurement).

ROLLER BLINDS
Recess measurement
Measure the width of the recess from wall to wall at the top of the window. This measurement is the most critical with a roller blind so please take care.
Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill .
If you have a tile border at the side of the window there is no need to allow as the cloth will always be 35mm less than the width of the fittings.

Outside recess
Measure the exact width of where you'd like your blind to be.  We will make the cloth to this width.
Measure the exact drop from the top of where you want your blind to be to the bottom.
NB  Fittings will add approx 35mm overall to the width, so make sure you have the extra room to accommodate this.
