How To Measure Roman Blinds
First things first, you must ensure that all measurements are measured to the nearest millimetre. Decide where you will fit the blind mechanism (ie the baton to which the top of the blind is attached). The mechanism can sit inside the window recess, as long as the recess is deep enough to accommodate it (ie at least 35mm).
How To Measure Roman Blinds to fit inside the window recess
Measure the inside of the recess (distance A) in three places: top, middle and bottom, giving us the narrowest width. Confirm your measurement as recess width, and we will allow a 0.5cm to 1cm gap between the edge of the blind and the wall on each side, to avoid the blind touching the wall when it is pulled up or down.
How To Measure Roman Blinds to fit on the window frame itself/outside recess
Measure the full width of the window frame, or if the window is bordered by an architrave, take your measurements from either the inside or outside of the architrave. Alternatively, if there is no frame or architrave, add a further 4 to 7cm either side (distances B). Distance B should not be greater than the width of the window sill outside the recess (distance C). Blind Drop Measure from the top of where you will place the baton i.e. full length of the recess (distance D) or the full length of the window frame. If the window is bordered by an architrave take your measurements from the inside or outside of the architrave. If there is no frame or architrave, add your desired length above the window (distance E) to distance D.
