Blinds.  Measure Blinds

How to measure for blinds

Valance Face Width (Rod/Board Face Width) should extend at least 2" on each side (total 4") of drapery rod for adequate clearance.

Standard Returns are 5 1/2" per side (total 11"). This gives you the needed 2" clearance for mounting over a single window treatment. For every additional layer of treatments, add at least 2" to the return size.

Decide where your valance will be installed on the window (top of frame, above under drapery, or at ceiling). Take ALL length measurements from this point.

How to measure for blinds

The three scenarios for measuring blinds are:

Inside Recess

1. Measure width A-B at the narrowest point so your blind can hang freely.

2. Measure Drop C-D.

3. Note which side you would like the cord – right or left.

Outside Recess

First check for obstructions that might stop your blind hanging freely and then decide on the amount of fabric to overlap the top and sides of the window recess. We recommend at least 5cm for both.

1. Measure the width you decide on, A-B.

2. Measure the drop you decide on, C-D.

3. Note which side you would like the cord – right or left.
