How to Measure

Measuring for blinds involves a few key steps to ensure you get the right fit. Here’s a general guide to measuring for blinds.

Decide Inside or Outside Mount: Determine whether you want to mount the blinds inside the window frame or outside on the wall or window frame.

Inside Mount: Measure the width at the top, middle, and bottom of the window. Use the smallest of these measurements.

Measure the height from the top of the window frame to the window sill in three places: left, middle, and right. Use the longest measurement.

Outside Mount: Measure the width you want the blind to cover. Typically, you’ll want to add extra width to ensure coverage and light blockage.

Measure the height from where you plan to mount the blind to where you want it to end. Again, add extra height to ensure coverage.

Check for Obstructions: If there are any obstructions like window handles, make sure to account for them in your measurements.

Consider Light Gaps: Depending on your preference, you might want to add extra width to the measurements to reduce light gaps at the sides of the blinds.

Write Down Your Measurements: It’s crucial to write down your measurements accurately to avoid any mistakes when ordering blinds.

Double Check: Before finalizing your order, double-check all measurements to ensure accuracy.

Remember, it’s always better to measure twice and order once to ensure you get blinds that fit your windows perfectly. If you’re unsure, some blind retailers offer assistance or professional measuring services to help you get the right fit.
