Measuring for Window Blinds

Two Simple Steps!

It's easy to measure for your custom made window blinds. All you need is a pen, paper & a tape measure. To make it even easier, download a handy measuring template from here.


Mounting your window blinds inside the window frame gives your room a clean and crisp look. Go for our wooden shutter blinds for the consistent look inside and outside of your house. Mounting them outside your window frame will allow you to maximise the light control by overlapping the fabric over the wall. Shop from our blockout roller blinds range for the perfect outside mount window blind.

STEP 1

Decide whether you want your window blinds inside the window frame or outside the window frame. It's easier once you have decided on the mounting position.
