How to Measure for Day & Night Blinds
First, decide where you want the blind to hang, this can be either inside the recess or outside of the recess.
Now check there are no obstructions inside or outside the window recess where the blind will hang, for example, look out for handles, part tiling, or windows that open inwards. If you need advice, call us or even send us a photo firstname.lastname@example.org
Inside Recess Measurement (Recess Fit)
Check your window recess is deep enough for the blind to fit inside. If no obstructions measure directly from the window frame to the edge of the recess. Make sure the recess depth is at least the number given below, otherwise it will not be able to accommodate the operating mechanism of a chosen frame design.
Open Frame Blind – 8cm
Covered Frame Blind – 10cm
Pelmeted Frame Blind – 10cm
Please consider any obstructions inside the recess such as handle, ventilation, or anything else and measure directly from them to the edge of the recess. Make sure the recess depth is at least the number given below, otherwise it will not be able to accommodate the operating mechanism of a chosen frame design.
Open Frame Blind – 11cm
Covered Frame Blind – 13cm
Pelmeted Frame Blind – 13cm
Step 1: Measure the width of your recess at three locations. The top, middle and bottom. Record the smallest measurement.
Step 2: Measure the drop of your recess at three locations. The left, middle and right. Record the smallest measurement.
Don’t make any deductions, we’ll make it for you to ensure your blind fits perfectly just give us the smallest numbers you have recorded for the width and drop.
If you have a partly tiled window recess in your kitchen or bathroom, in this case, the recess width should be measured between tiles.
Outside Recess Measurement (Exact Fit)
Decide how far you want the blind to overlap the wall.
Step 1: Measure the outside of your window recess from one side to another from the point you want. We recommend that overlap should be at least 7cm from each side, in order to minimise as much of external light as possible.
Step 2: Measure the outside of your window recess from the top to the bottom, from the height at which you want the cassette system to sit. It should be positioned at least 7cm above the window, down to the point you want the bottom bar to stop.
Young children can be strangled by the loops in pull chains that operate this product. To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep chains out of reach of young children. Chains may become wrapped around a child’s neck. Move cots and furniture away from window covering chains.
