The steps below detail the measurements required for blinds to ﬁt inside a recess. We recommend that you use a metal tape measure and record your measurements in mm for greatest accuracy. To ensure that your blinds will fit within your window recess, the recess has to be at least 75mm deep to house the operating mechanism and you also need to ensure that there are no obstructions anywhere inside the recess (eg handles) that might stop the blind from hanging correctly. Follow the steps below to calculate the full width and height of the recess (the size of the hole) and we will make the appropriate deductions to make sure your blind ﬁts perfectly.
Roman blinds have a deduction of 5mm on each side so that the blind will not rub or scratch your window frame. Roller blind mechanisms are made to your exact measurements to ensure a snug fit, however you should note that the actual width of the blind fabric is 35mm less than the width of the mechanism, this affords easier installation of the roller itself due to the movement allowance of the telescopic pin which fits into the blind wall brackets.
1: Measure the width and the drop in 3 positions, make a note of the smallest measurements.
2: Don’t make any deductions, we will do that for you to ensure your blind ﬁts perfectly.
3: Please choose “inside recess” when placing your order.
4: Choose which side you would like the operating chain and decide on a chain length, taking into account necessary safety requirements.
