Blinds can be a smart and economical way of covering windows.
Click on the thumbnail images for measuring guidelines and a larger view of the 3 classic styles for blinds: Roman, London and Roller.
Some tips when measuring for blinds:
|Use a metal tape measure and measure in millimetres for accuracy|
|Consider whether you want blinds inset or standing proud|
|Measure the area that you want to cover, not just the window|
|If your fabric is narrower then the window, you can make a feature by adding a border around it|
Ideally get your curtainmaker to both measure and look at the site to anticipate issues that might arise when fixing the blind.
