In the age of online shopping, buying blinds from the comfort of your home has never been easier. However, one critical step that remains is taking accurate measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Worry not! Curtain Master is here to guide you through the process. Follow our step-by-step tutorial to get precise measurements for your blinds.
Tools You’ll Need
- A metal measuring tape (it offers more accuracy than cloth tapes)
- A pen and paper or a digital device to note down measurements
- A ladder or step-stool (if necessary)
Step 1: Decide on Inside or Outside Mount
Before you begin, decide whether you want an inside mount (blinds that fit within the window recess) or an outside mount (blinds that cover the window trim).
- This offers a clean, built-in look and is ideal if you want to showcase attractive window moldings.
- A great option if you want to make your window appear larger or if there’s not enough depth for an inside mount.
Step 2: Measuring for Inside Mount
- Width: Measure the width of the window recess from left to right in three places – top, middle, and bottom. Record the smallest measurement. This ensures the blinds won’t be too wide for the space.
- Height: Measure the height of the window from the top of the recess to the windowsill in three places – left, center, and right. Again, note down the smallest measurement.
Step 3: Measuring for Outside Mount
- Width: Measure the width of the window covering the desired area. Typically, add an extra 50mm (or more based on preference) on each side to ensure light gaps are minimized.
- Height: Start measuring from where you want the top of the blind to be and go down to where the blind should end. This might be just beyond the windowsill or further down if you desire.
Step 4: Depth Measurement (for Inside Mount)
Ensure there’s enough depth in your window frame for the blinds to fit. Different blinds have different depth requirements, so check the product specifications. If your window doesn’t have enough depth, you might have to opt for an outside mount.
Step 5: Double Check Your Measurements
It’s a simple but crucial step. Re-measure to ensure accuracy. Remember the golden rule: “Measure twice, order once.”
