Measuring for inside a RecessFirst ensure that the recess your blind is going into is not obstructed in any way so the blind can hang freely when fully extended. Look out for protruding tiles, pipes, skirting boards etc.
Measure the width from A to B and the drop from C to D (see diagram to the right). We recommend you do this in several places to allow for any slight size variation and note down the smallest measurements to the nearest millimetre. If you prefer you can measure in inches or centimeters, and order that way.
We will make your blind smaller to fit into the recess.
There is no need for you to make any adjustments. THIS IS CALLED RECESS SIZE
Your Blind will arrive about 5-10mm smaller, so it hangs freely and fits perfect within the recess
All Fabric Blinds will have a narrower fabric width than the total blind size ordered. This is to accommodate the side controls and brackets etc.
This applies to both recess and exact sizes. For Roller Blinds this can be up to -35mm
Measuring for outside a recess or ExactDecide how much you want to overlap the blind on all sides - we recommend this should be at least 50mm (2 inches) each side in most instances.
or the exact size you want the blind to be, if fitting inside a recess
Carefully measure the width from E to F (see the diagram to your right) and the drop from G to H and note down the smallest measurements to the nearest millimetre. If you prefer you can measure in inches or centimeters, and order that way.
REMEMBER on roller blinds and some shades ( Facette, Silhouette, Multishade etc ) the fabric will be less than the overall width of the blind/sizes given, so you must allow for this.
We will make your blind to your exact sizes.
In Short - Recess we make the allowance - Exact you make the allowance
