How To Measure For Roman Blinds

IMPORTANT – Always use a metal tape to take your measurements rather than a fabric or plastic tape, which may stretch and result in inaccurate measurements.

We would recommend you get in touch and check the stock levels before placing your order. 

Our Roman Blinds are made up using a roman Blind Tape which securely holds the fibreglass rod used to create each fold.  This is machine stitched with a single line of stitching across the blind adding stability and ensuring a long lasting finish. The bottom is weighted with an aluminium bottom bar.  When using a Blackout Lining this stitching can show tiny ‘pin holes’ of light.

MEASURING FOR AN INSIDE RECESS ROMAN BLIND

To be sure of the best possible fit, take time to measure your window carefully.

Measuring the width

Measure the width of your window recess from wall to wall. Take measurements at three different points just in case your window is not square and write down the smallest measurement. This measurement is called ‘Inside Recess’ (See fig. 1). A small deduction (1.5cm) for clearance will be taken off the width by us from your supplied measurements to ensure your blind can operate smoothly and fits within the recess.

Measuring the drop

Measure the height of your window recess from top to sill. Take measurements at three different points just in case your window is not square and write down the smallest measurement.

IMPORTANT – It’s important that you carefully measure your windows to ensure your roman blinds fit correctly. If you are in any doubt, please be sure to check again. By supplying these measurements you take full responsibility for the finished size of your roman blinds.

MEASURING FOR AN OUTSIDE RECESS ROMAN BLIND

To be sure of the best possible fit, take time to measure your window carefully.

It will be necessary to fit the blind outside the recess if:

  • The recess is less than 7.5cm [3″] deep (to ensure the blind clears the handles)
  • The window is not straight i.e. The width or height varies by more than 2.5cm [1″] (to avoid too much light seeping through)
  • The window opens inwards

Measuring the width

Measure the width that you would like your roman blind. This measurement is called ‘Outside Recess’ (See fig. 2). We suggest that the blind extends approx. 10cm at either side and above and below the recess.

Measuring the drop

Measure the length that you would like your roman blind.

Your blind will be made to your given sizes.

IMPORTANT – It’s important that you carefully measure your windows to ensure your roman blinds fit correctly. If you are in any doubt, please be sure to check again or contact our Sales Team.
