Measuring for your blinds

Measuring for Roman blinds

blinds may be fitted either inside or outside the window recess. If a blind is being fitted inside a recess, please quote 'recess size' on the order form and we will make an adjustment for a perfect fit at the time of manufacture. 


If a blind is being fitted outside a recess, please quote 'blind size' on the order form and the blind will then be manufactured to the size quoted. If more than one blind is being fitted on the window please quote the size of each individual blind rather than the overall recess size.

When deciding whether to fit the blind inside or outside the recess consider the following points.

It will be necessary to fit the blind outside the recess if -

  • The recess is less than 7.5cm (3") deep.
  • The window opens inwards.
  • Window is not straight (width or height varies by more than 2cm (3/4").
