Measuring Instructions for Vertical Blinds

Width
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the inside edge of the window frame in three places (top, middle and bottom).
  • Take the smallest of the three measurements.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.
  • *The factory will make all necessary deductions to allow for mounting brackets. Production department will deduct ⅜" on width.
Height
  • Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three places.
  • Take the smallest of the three measurements.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the second number of the measurement. This is the height you will order.
  • Keep in mind that height includes headrail plus vanes. Headrail is 1 ½" tall.
  • Production department will deduct ½" on height. The vanes will be 2" smaller than the height ordered.
*width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8"


Width
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind or shade to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. Example: If the window opening is 72", it might be helpful to order 76". This will provide 2" coverage on each side of the window.
  • There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
  • Keep in mind that the valance will be about 2" wider than width ordered.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement.
Height
  • Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom.
  • We recommend adding about 3 or 4 inches to this number to insure maximum light gap coverage and to cover the window completely.
  • Please be sure to know that the height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 80" this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail). The vanes will be about 1 ½" smaller than height ordered so when attached to headrail it will total to height ordered.
  • You will want to mount the headrail above the window frame. Please make a note that some windows have trim that might interfere with mounting so it's important to measure above the trim if this is the case.
  • Headrail is 1 ½" in height.
*width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8"
