Measuring

Tape measure

The following instructions will guide you through the best method for measuring a window to suit any type of blind. Before measuring, you must decide if the blinds would be more aesthetically pleasing fitted inside the window recess or outside the window recess.

Please note that all measurements needs to be checked by a fully qualified blind fitter before final manufacture. Karens Blinds takes no responsibility for mis-measurement.
