Inside the recess

01. WIDTH

Measure the width inside the recess (wall-to-wall) at the top, middle and bottom. Take the narrowest width.

02. HEIGHT

Measure the height inside the recess (wall-to-wall) in three places. Take the longest measurement.

03. INSTALLATION HEIGHT

Measure the height at which you will install the blind to the floor. This is so we can make sure your pull chain is the correct height.

Outside the recess

01. WIDTH

Measure the window sill width. If you don’t have a window sill, measure wall-to-wall inside the recess and add 10cm to each side.

02. HEIGHT

Measure the height from where you would like to install your blind to the window sill (or bottom of the recess). We recommend installing your blind up to 30cm above the window frame.

03. INSTALLATION HEIGHT

Measure the height at which you will install the blind to the floor. This is so we can make sure your pull chain is the correct height.
