How to measure indoor blinds:

First off, let's make sure we've got all the right equipment to precisely measure your windows. We always recommend taking any measurements with a steel ruler or tape, making sure to record in millimetres (mm) rather than centimetres (cm) to ensure accuracy.

Helpful tip:
When measuring, always look out for things that may be an obstacle for your new Blinds or Shutters like window handles or tiles. Remember to take their position into account to ensure a perfect fit when it comes time to install.

How to know what size blinds you need:

Grab a piece of paper and use the metal measuring tape to measure both the height and width of your window frames. Whether you're measuring to fit your blinds within the window recess or outside it, we have all the info you need to get the correct measurements. Make sure to check out our 'Measuring recesses' page to learn more about how to measure both inside and outside the mount for blinds.

Helpful tip:
While at this point second nature to type the measurements into your phone, it can be easy to make a mistake. Dust off your pen or pencil and grab a piece of paper to record your window measurements, you'll thank yourself later.

Measure multiple times:

The most crucial part of the measuring experience is measuring again, then once more. This way you're sure you've got the measurements correct. Avoiding the unfortunate situation where you excitedly open up your package and unpack your blinds only to find they don't fit.

The last step:

If you've now got all the measurements required, the only thing left to do is enter them online! Once entered, you'll receive an accurate price to help make your decision. Just head to the page of the product you're interested in, select the fabric and colour you like, follow the prompts to add the blinds, shutters or awnings to your shopping cart!
