Inside:

  • Step 1: Measure the inside width at 3 places: the top, middle and bottom. Round down to the nearest 1/8". Enter the smallest measurement on your worksheet. This is your ordering width. (Blindsgalore takes necessary deductions.)
  • Step 2: Measure the height at 3 places: left side, middle and right side. Round up to the nearest 1/8". Enter the longest measurement on your worksheet. This is your ordering height.
  • Step 3: Measure the depth at 3 places: left side, middle and right side. Mounting surface must be flat in order to attach headrail. Also, obstructions may cause measurements to vary so it is important to keep this in mind while measuring. Round down to the nearest 1/8”. Enter the shortest measurement on your worksheet. This is your ordering depth.

Outside:

  • Blind is mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding around the window
  • Makes window area appear larger; helps hide unattractive windows or molding
  • No minimum depth requirement
  • Requires at least 2" of flat space above window molding for mounting brackets

Outside:

  • Step 1: Measure the width of the area you want to cover. We recommend adding 3 inches (1 1/2" on each side) to help eliminate light gaps and ensure privacy. Enter this width on your worksheet; it is your ordering width and the width of the blind (no deductions will be taken).
  • Step 2: Measure the height of the area you want to cover including any extra overlap. Enter this height on your worksheet; it is your ordering height and the height of your blind (no deductions will be taken).
