How to Measure Roller Blinds

Measuring for Roller blinds can seem daunting when you’re not confident in how to do this accurately.

We have collated an easy step by step guide so you can be sure you know exactly how to measure for Roller Blinds. They are a great addition to any room, whether you’re looking to add them to your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.

We recommend using a metal tape measure to ensure the measurements are accurate and you have a pen and paper ready to jot down the sizes.  

Decide On Your Blind Positioning

Decide On Your Blind Positioning

Firstly, you will need to decide if your roller blind is going to sit inside the recess of your window or on the outside. If you are wanting to maximise daylight coming through the window we would recommend inside the recess as it can roll up neatly into the mechanism showing more of your window. If you want the blind to be more of a feature in the room then consider having it fitted to the outside of your recess, so it shows more of the fabric.

Measuring for Inside the Recess

Measuring for Inside the Recess

If you have chosen for your Roller blind to be inside the recess, then you will need to measure the height and width of your window in three places and take the smallest measurement.  

Measuring for Outside the Recess

Measuring for Outside the Recess

For outside the recess you will need to fit the roller blind 5-10cm above the window and allow 5cm either side of the window for the width.
