Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Materials

Before you begin, ensure you have all the necessary tools and materials mentioned above, specifically using a measuring tape calibrated in cm or mm. Just remember to do the conversion from cm to mm. Having everything on hand will facilitate the measuring process.

Step 2: Decide Inside (Reveal) or Outside Mount (Face-Fix)

Determine whether you want an inside mount (within the window frame) or an outside mount (outside the frame) for your blinds. Inside mounts offer a sleek appearance, while outside mounts can create the illusion of larger windows and offer greater light control.

Step 3: Measure for an Inside Mount

If you choose an inside mount, follow these steps:

Measure the Depth:

For an inside mount of all blind types excluding shutters, we need a minimum of 70mm for the blind to fit nice and stylish inside the window frame.

Measure at the top of the window from frame till the face of the wall at the window frames most extruded point and record it on the diagram.

Measure the width:

Measure the width at the top, middle, and bottom of the window frame.

Record the measurement on the given diagram to ensure proper clearance within the frame.

Measure the height:

Measure the height on the left, center, and right sides of the window frame.

Record the measurement on the given Diagram. This guarantees that the blinds fully cover the window height.

Step 4: Measure for an Outside Mount

For an outside mount, follow these steps:

Measure the width:

Measure the inside width in the middle of the windows, record it on the Diagram.

We add an extra 100 mm on both sides for improved light coverage and privacy.

Measure the height:

Measure the height of the window.

We add an extra 100 mm to the top and bottom for a more appealing look.

Step 5: Double-Check Measurements

Before finalizing your measurements, double-check all dimensions to ensure accuracy. Accurate measurements are crucial for a successful installation.
