Measuring for Roman Blinds
Easy, peasy - but if it isn't, let us know
We want ordering blinds to be an exciting process for you however getting the measurements right can be overwhelming. This is why we have created a simple, visual measuring guide that will help you step by step. Don’t forget that if you’d like any reassurance from us, just get in touch and we will advise, explain and help to guide you through the whole process.
Width of the blind will be made to your exact measurements so we recommend measuring width of the recess and taking away 1cm from the overall width to ensure the blind fits and operate smoothly. (Point A to point B – see diagram).
Drop of the blind will be made to your exact measurement. We recommend measuring from the top of the recess, all the way down to the window sill unless otherwise needed. (Point C to point D – see diagram)

Please allow 4cm of flat surface above the window for the track brackets to be fitted onto. (Point E to point F – see diagram).
Please note that below information is based on our many years of experience with customers and these are not guidelines for ordering blinds. Each customer is unique and has unique visions and requirements.
- Blinds which are fitted inside the window recess, we recommend taking 1cm off of the width to ensure the blind fits and operate smoothly.
- For blinds fitted inside window recess, please measure the width and drop in three places (top, middle, bottom / left, middle, right) to ensure the recess is even and you may risk blind not fitting if the recess is wider in one place than another.
- For blinds fitted outside of the window recess, please make sure you have 4cm of flat surface above the window to fit the track brackets onto.
