Measuring Instructions for Timber Blinds



Timber Blinds – Inside Mount

Width

  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the inside edge of the window frame in three places (top, middle and bottom).
  • Take the smallest of the three measurements.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.
  • Production department will deduct 5mm of width on each side of blind, total of 10mm on inside mounted blinds to allow for mounting brackets.
  • Please be sure to measure exactly as instructed BUT NOT TAKE OFF ANYTHING FROM THE MEASUREMENTS TO ALLOW FOR FREE SPACE since we automatically take deductions from the measurements on your order to provide for this free space.
  • If you are planning to do a flush mount, please ensure that you have the space required to do so–you’ll find the ‘Flush mounting space required’ under the Features tab for your blinds.

Height

  • Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three places.
  • Take the largest of the three measurements.
  • Take the largest of the three measurements.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the second number of the measurement. This is the height you will order.
  • Width and length measurements may vary 5mm

Timber Blinds – Outside Mount

Width

  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. Example: If the window opening is 1360mm, it might be helpful to order 1400m. This will provide 20mm coverage on each side of the window.
  • There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
  • Keep in mind that the valance will be about 20mm wider than width ordered.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.

Height

  • Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom.
  • We recommend adding about 40mm or 50mm inches to this number to insure maximum light gap coverage and to cover the window completely.
  • Please be sure to know that the height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 1000mm this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail).
  • You will want to mount the headrail above the window frame. Please make a note that some windows have trim that might interfere with mounting so it’s important to measure above the trim if this is the case.
  • Headrail is 50mm in height.
  • Width and length measurements may vary 5mm
