How to measure for Venetian blinds
Getting the right size is very important to the overall look and performance of your venetian blinds.
- Sketch each of your windows and write each measurement on the sketch as you go
- Measure in millimeters with a reliable metal tape measure
- Follow the builders' rule of thumb - measure twice!
For an Inside Mount
For an Outside Mount
NOTE: If the window has no architrave or frame add at least 40mm on each side of the opening.
At the top, a minimum of 50mm of frame/architrave is required for the fixing of the control brackets. If there is less than a 50mm frame, measure from a point 60mm above the window.
Where there is a protruding sill, measure to the top of the sill. If there is no protruding sill you may choose a point lower than the sill. Take this measurement at the left, middle and right side of the window as pictured in positions D, E and F.
