How to Measure For 

   Venetian Blinds

 

Inside Mount

 

How to measure a window for a blind to be mounted on the inside of the window frame.The blind will sit inside the window frame.

Width: Measure the EXACT inside width of the window (as per illustration).

Drop: Measure the EXACT inside drop of the window (as per illustration).

Important: When measuring for "Inside Mount" DO NOT make any allowance for clearance. The factory will make the necessary deductions for clearance.

 

Outside Mount

 

How to measure a window for a blind to be mounted on the face of the window frame. The Blind will cover the total window area and be fitted to the window frame.

Width: Measure the EXACT outside width of the window (as per illustration).

Drop: Measure the EXACT outside drop of the window (as per illustration).

If you have no architraves - to minimize light gaps and obtain maximum privacy, add 20mm to 75mm on each side of the window frame.

  

Sliding Patio Doors - Inside Mount (Reveal)

 

Blinds can be mounted either within the door frame (reveal fit) or on the outside of the door frame (face fit). When considering the best fit take into account any obstructions such as door handles and bars and also the depth of the door frame.

It is highly recommended that two blinds be fitted into a sliding patio door for greater versatility as well as ease of use.

Width: Measure the EXACT inside width of the window (as per illustration).

Drop: Measure the EXACT inside drop of the window (as per illustration).


Sliding Patio Doors - Outside Mount (Face Fit)

 

How to measure a window for a blind to be mounted on the face of the sliding door frame.

The Blind will cover the total door area and be fitted to the window frame.

Width: Measure the EXACT outside width of the window (as per illustration).

Drop: Measure the EXACT outside drop of the window (as per illustration).

A note when measuring for Vertical Blinds When measuring for vertical blinds you must add an extra 75mm to 100mm to width on either side of the frame, this will allow enough coverage for complete privacy

Measuring for an Outside Mount

Image result for diagrama for Measuring for an outside Mount for bay windows venetian blinds

1. Decide on the type of blind

Firstly you need to decide what type of blind you are fitting on your Bay Window and find the depth of the blind you are using. For 50mm Timber, Ecowood, Bamboo or Cedar, and Shutter venetians this is 65mm. For 25mm Aluminium slimline venetians this is 25mm.

2. Preparing your measuring tools

Cut out two pieces of stiff cardboard approximately 150mm in length x 65mm (for Timber, Ecowood, Shutter, Bamboo and or Cedar blinds) or 150mm in length x 25mm for 25mm Slimline Aluminium venetians. Make sure the pieces of cardboard you cut are square.

3. Marking Measuring Points on Window Frame - part 1

Using the diagram above as a guide, place the two pieces of cardboard into the apex at the top of the window frame where the blind head rail will sit. Slide the two pieces of cardboard together until the two front corners touch, as shown in the diagram. On the window frame make a mark on the inside edge of the cardboard, using a pencil, as shown in the diagram below (B&C).

4. Marking Measuring Points on Window Frame - part 2

Repeat Step 3 for the other apex on your Bay Window (D&E).

5. Measuring Left, Centre and Right blinds:

Using a metal tape measure, measure the distance between the marks yo have made on your frame: A-B (Left Blind), C-D (Centre Blind) and E-F (Right Blind). Please do not take any deductions off these measurements. Our warehouse will make any necessary deductions required to ensure your blinds will fit perfectly.

6. Measure the Drop

Take the drop measurement in three different places noting the smallest drop. This is the measurement you will need when placing your order.

7. Ordering your blind

Order your blind as an Outside Mount. Our warehouse will make the necessary deductions to ensure your Bay Window fits perfectly. Please remember to type "Bay Window" as the room reference when ordering your blinds otherwise our warehouse will not know to allow for Bay Window deductions .

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Measuring into a Corner Window

 

1. Decide on type of fit

 

Decide whether your corner window blinds will be fitted as an 'Inside Mount' or 'Outside Mount'. If you are unsure, please refer to our measuring guide for Inside and Outside Mount diagrams. Please remember to check the sill depth required for the particular blind you have chosen and, also check for any obstructions within the window frame ie: handles, mullions, window winders etc.

 

2. Decide 'Thru' or 'Butt' blind

 

Decide which blind is going to be the 'Thru Blind' and which blind will be the 'Butt Blind'. This is shown in diagram A and B above. Please take not of where the gap will be on the window. Some people like to position the gap so it is less obvious in the room or on the side where not as much sun will enter.

 

3. Measure the Thru Blind

 

Using a metal tape and measuring at the top of your window where the blind head rail will sit, measure the distance tight into the corner. Please supply this exact measurement and do not take off any deductions.

 

4. Measuring the Butt Blind

 

Using a metal tape and measuring at the top of your window where the blind head rail will sit, measure the distance hard into the corner. Please supply this exact measurement and do not take off any deductions. Our warehouse will make the necessary deductions for the Butt Blind.

 

5. Measure the Drop

 

Take the drop measurement in three different places noting the smallest drop. This is the measurement you will need when placing your order.

 

6. Ordering your Blinds

 

Place the order for your blinds selecting 'Inside Mount' or 'Outside Mount' depending on your window. Our Warehouse will make the necessary deductions for the Butt Blind to ensure your blinds will fit perfectly in your corner window. Please remember to type 'Thru Blind' and 'Butt Blind' as the room reference when ordering your blinds otherwise our warehouse will not know to allow for the Butt Blind deduction.

TIP 1:

If you are ordering custom made blinds for your corner window, may we suggest that you order your blinds with the controls at either end to avoid them tangling and hanging in the centre of your window.

TIP :2

If your corner area requires more than two blinds ie: a sliding door with a corner window, please combine the measuring instructions for 'Multiple Blinds' and 'Corner Windows' for the best results.

 


 

Sill Depth

 

For a reveal fit the depth of the window or door frame has to be taken into consideration. Refer to product specifications for depth required.

 


 

House Plans

 Window measurements from house plans are not recommended. There are many factors to take into consideration when measuring for blinds e.g. reveal or face fit, depth of the window sill, architraves, tiles, door handles etc.

 You can acquire an estimate price using the measurements from house plans but we recommend measuring each window individually to ensure accuracy. Another point to take into consideration builders, architects and window manufacturers normally show window sizes drop before width ie: 2100d x 1500w.

 Blind industry standard works the opposite to builders, you must always remember to record your measurements width before drop ie: 1500w x 2100d when measuring windows for blinds.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 Multiple Blinds Installed into One Window

 

Image result for OUTSIDE MOUNT  Multiple Blinds for Same Window

 

The same measuring rule applies for multiple blinds as per the instructions above.

 

For multiple blinds being installed into one window you can mount the brackets back to back.

 

If your window frame has three equal panels measure the overall distance (OV) and just divide by three.

 

If your window/doorway panels are not equal simply measure each section one at a time to the centre of panel frames.

 

The combined measurements that you give should be the same as the overall width. Measuring the drop is the same for all applications, please see instructions above.

Multiple Blinds Installed into One Window

  

 

 The same measuring rule applies for multiple blinds as per the instructions above.

 For multiple blinds being installed into one window you can mount the brackets back to back.

 If your window frame has three equal panels measure the overall distance (OV) and just divide by three.

 If your window/doorway panels are not equal simply measure each section one at a time to the centre of panel frames.

 The combined measurements that you give should be the same as the overall width. Measuring the drop is the same for all applications, please see instructions above.

How to Measure For

Vertical Blinds

 

Inside Mount

Use this option if the Vertical Blind is going to be installed inside the window frame.

Width: Measure the EXACT inside width of the window (as per illustration).

Drop: Measure the EXACT inside drop of the window (as per illustration).

Important: When measuring for "Inside Mount" DO NOT make any allowance for clearance. The factory will make the necessary deductions for clearance.

Min. sill depth required for vertical blinds = 60mm


Outside Mount

Use this option if you intend to mount the Vertical Blind on the face of the window frame. The Blind will cover the total window area and the brackets fitted to the window/architrave frame.

Note: When measuring for vertical blinds you must add an extra 100mm to the width on either side of the frame where possible, this will allow enough coverage for complete privacy. Installing your blinds OUTSIDE MOUNT will make the window or doorway appear larger.

Width: Measure the EXACT outside width of the window/architrave (as per illustration) and then add an extra 100mm either side of the window/architrave.

Drop: Measure the EXACT outside drop of the window (as per illustration). From the top of the window/architrave to the bottom of the window/architrave. If you want the blinds to hang further down from the window simply measure to the desired length.


Sliding Patio Doors - Outside Mount (Face Fit)

How to measure a window for a vertical blind to be mounted on the face of the sliding door frame.

The Blind will cover the total door area and be fitted to the window frame.

Width: Measure the EXACT outside width of the window (as per illustration) and then add an extra 100mm either side of the window/architrave.

Drop: Measure the EXACT outside drop of the window (as per illustration).
