1Make sure you have enough room for a recess-fit blind

Measure the depth of the window frame, from the glass to the edge of the frame. To make sure you measure in a straight line, we recommend measuring the bottom corner – as long as it is free from obstructions.

This measurement needs to be at least 50mm.
If your measurement is under 50mm, you’ll need to order face-fit roller blinds.

1Measure the total width of your window frame

Measure the full width across the top of your window frame or architraves from edge to edge. This is where the brackets will sit. Write down the measurement in millimetres– this will be the width measurement.

1Measure the width of your ceiling

If you have cornices along the ceiling, measure from the inside edge of your cornices on either side instead of wall to wall.

If you have a straight-edge ceiling, measure the width of your ceiling from wall to wall.

Write down the measurement in millimetres. This will be the width measurement.

Tip: Ceiling-mount curtains look fantastic when running full width wall to wall, if you’d like to frame your window with your curtains then we’d recommend a face fit curtain.

1Measure the total width of your window or door

Measure the total width of your window or door in millimetres.

If you want to see the full window or door when the curtains are open, add an additional 30% to the total of window measurement. The curtains will stack on either side of the window when open, rather than partially concealing it.

Make sure this measurement is not longer than the wall.

For example: If your window is 1000mm wide and you want to frame it, add an extra 30% or 300mm, so your total width is 1300mm. This means your curtain rail will go an extra 15% (or 150mm in our example) on either side of the window for a centre opening, letting the most amount of light in when open.

Record your final measurement in millimeters.

1Measure the depth of your window frame

Choose the thinnest or shallowest part of your window frame, making sure the depth you are measuring is free from obstructions the whole way around the window. Measure from the back edge of the recess or from the nearest obstruction (e.g. window winder).

If this measurement is 65mm or above, then you’re good to go. If it is below 65mm then a face fit shutter is the best solution.

1Measure the width of your window

Measure the full width across the top of your window frame from edge to edge. This is where the frame will sit.

You need to measure in three places:

  • Top of the window frame
  • Bottom of the window frame
  • In the middle of the window frame

Write down the smallest measurement in millimetres. This will be the width measurement.
