Measuring Guide

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

step 1

Step 1

Measure the inside width of your window recess at the top and bottom of the window and record both measurements. Measure the inside drop of your window recess at the left side and the right side of your window and record both measurements.

step 2

Step 2

Work out how you will be fitting your venetian blind – will it be going inside (go to Step 3) or outside (go to step 4) the window recess?

step 3

Step 3

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 wider that the standard sizes which are 45cm, 60cm, 75cm, 90cm, 105cm, 120cm, 135cm, 150cm, 165cm, 180cm* then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight into your window without the need to trim the width.

Otherwise you should order the WIDER size which is nearest to your measurement and cut the blind down – Slat cutters to cut the blind down are available. All Chiltern Mills standard drop venetian blinds have a drop of approximately 152cm(59”). If this is longer than your drop measurement order a standard blind, but if your window is between 153cm-213cm long please order a LONG DROP blind.

step 4

Step 4

Step 4 If you are fitting the blind outside the window recess take the largest width and drop measurement from step 1. We usually 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 3” to each side of your window or a total of 15cm to your measured width to give your BLIND SIZE WIDTH.

If your BLIND SIZE WIDTH is near the standard sizes which are 45cm, 60cm, 75cm, 90cm, 105cm, 120cm, 135cm, 150cm, 165cm, 180cm* then you will be able to order the standard size to fit straight up. Otherwise you should order the WIDER size which is nearest to your BLIND SIZE WIDTH measurement and if needed cut the blind’s width down - Slat cutters to cut the blind down are available.

Next Please check how far above the window you will be fitting the blind and measure this distance to the top of the window recess and add this to the drop you measured in step 1 to give you your BLIND SIZE DROP. All Chiltern Mills standard drop venetian blinds have a drop of approximately 152cm(59”). If this is longer than your drop measurement order a standard blind, but if your BLIND SIZE DROP is between 153cm-213cm long please order a LONG DROP blind.
