With Vertical Blinds you can reduce the Width and also shorten the Drop.

Measure the Width of the Vertical Blind

If you are fitting the blind inside your window recess take the smallest measurement for your width and the longest measurement for your drop.

If your width is 1cm (0.40") wider that the standard sizes which are 60cm (24"), 90cm (35"), 120cm (47"), 150cm (59") and 180cm (71") then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight into your window without the need to trim the width.

Reducing the Width - £6

Otherwise you should order the next WIDER size which is nearest to your measurement and reduce the width.

Shortening the Drop - £15

All Chiltern Mills standard drop vertical blinds have a drop of approximately 137cm (54").

If this is longer than your drop measurement order a standard blind and alter the drop to the size that you require.

If your window has a drop between 138cm-229cm then please order a LONG DROP blind and shorten the drop as required.

Step 3 – Having the Vertical Blind Outside the Window 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 even when slats are closed that you add at least 8cm (3") to each side of your window or a total of 15cm to your measured width to give your BLIND SIZE WIDTH.

If your width is 1cm(0.40") wider that the standard sizes which are 60cm(24"), 90cm(35"), 120cm(47"), 150cm(59") and 180cm(71") then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight into your window without the need to trim the width.

Reducing the Width of the Vertical Blind - £6

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

Measuring and Shortening the Drop of the Vertical Blind - £15

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 Vertical Blinds have a drop of approximately 137cm (54").

If this is longer than your drop measurement, order a standard blind and alter the drop to the required size.
