HOW TO MEASURE FOR A ROLLER BLIND

Roller Blinds

1. Measure the Inside of your window recess at the top for width. Measure the drop of the window on the left and right sides. If your window is longer than 170cm (67”) drop then a roller blind would not be suitable unless you were to get one specially made.

2. Work out whether you will be fitting your roller blind inside (Go to step 3) or outside (Go to step 4) of your window recess.

3. If you are fitting the blind inside your window recess then take your width. If your width is 60-61cm, 90-91 cm, 120-121cm, 180-181cm or 240-241cm then you will be able to order a standard sized blind to fit in your window. Otherwise you will need to order the size closest to but wider than your window measurement and trim your roller blind to size. Please note that as long as your roller blind is long enough you never need to shorten roller blinds – they are operated by a sidewinder chain and you pull them down as far as you want to fit your window.

4. If your are fitting the blind outside the window recess, please add 15cm to the width and drop measurements you took in step 1 as we recommend that you add 3” to each side of the window – this is particularly important if you are buying a blackout roller blind as any less than this might mean that you get some unexpected light coming in to the room. . If your width is 60-61cm, 90-91 cm, 120-121cm, 180-181cm or 240-241cm then you will be able to order a standard sized blind to fit in your window. Otherwise you will need to order the size closest to but wider than your window measurement and trim your roller blind to size. Please note that as long as your roller blind is long enough you never need to shorten roller blinds – they are operated by a sidewinder chain and you pull them down as far as you want to fit your window.
