The  first decision to make is, do you want your blind to fit inside or outside the  recess? (Note: If the recess is less  than 60mm (2.5") deep, the window opens inwards or there are other  obstructions the blind may have to be fitted outside the recess, please call us  first if this is the case) Inside  Window Recess (Recess) Just give the width and height of the recess. We will make minor deductions to these measurements as necessary for the blind to fit in a recess of this size. N.B. It is advisable to measure the width in several places and you  should of course quote the minimum width. (When measuring for roller blinds,  please take the width measurement from the top of the window to ensure best  fit)

Outside Window Recess (Exact) Decide how much you wish to overlap the recess at each side (suggested  overlap is 60mm (2.5") each side) and at the top and bottom. Ideally, when  raised, the blind should not obscure the window.


Additional information when measuring for roller blinds and day night blinds. Please note  that the cloth width will be 35-40mm narrower than the overall size. Further to this if you are side fixing it is important to always state this as an exact measurement.
