step 1

Step 1 - Choose if you are having the Roller Blind fitted inside or outside the recess.

If you are having the Roller Blind fitted inside the recess then go to step 2.

If you are having the Roller Blind Fitted outside the recess then go to step 3.

step 2

Step 2 - Having the Roller Blinds inside the Recess

Altering the Width of the Roller Blind

If you are fitting the Roller Blind inside the recess of your window take the smallest width and the longest drop of your window. Sometimes the width and drop may vary slightly.

If your width is 1cm wider than the standard sizes of 60cm (24"), 90cm (36"), 120cm (48") and 1800cm (71") , then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight into you windows recess without the need to trim the width.

Otherwise you will have to order the next widest size up and reduce the width of the Roller Blind.

Roller Blinds Drop Sizes

Most Roller Blinds come with a drop of 170 cm (67") drop which cannot be changed because of the fittings.

step 3

Step 3 - Having the Roller Blind outside the Recess

Measuring the Width

If you are fitting the blind outside the window recess take the largest width and drop measurement. Chiltern Mills recommend that to minimise the amount of light which will come in from the side of the blind you add at least 8cm (3") to each side of your window or a total of 15cm to your measured width to give your CLOTH SIZE WIDTH.

If your width is 1cm wider than the standard sizes of 60cm (24"), 90cm (36"), 120cm (48") and 1800cm (71") , then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight into you windows recess without the need to trim the width.

Altering the Width of the Roller Blind

Otherwise you should order the next WIDER size which is the nearest to your CLOTH SIZE WIDTH measurement and if needed cut the roller blind width down using the alteration service.

Measuring the Drop

As you will be fitting the blind above the window frame make sure that you measure from the point that you will hang the blind from to the point where you want it to rest.

All Chiltern Mills standard drop Roller Blinds have a drop of approximately 170cm (67").
