How to Measure?
- Inside the frame:
Make sure that the frame has a minimum of 1 ½” deep of flat surface for easy installation. Please note that we have 18” margin of error which is taken into account when instructed to subtract ¼” from the width.
Width: Measure the width at the top and also at the bottom. If the width differs due to imperfections, use the shortest measurement and subtract from that ¼”.
Height: Measure the height on both sides. If the height differs due to imperfections, use the longest measurement.
- Onto the frame:
Please note that the blind fabric is 1” shorter than the fixture when deciding on the width preference of the blind.
Width: Measure the width at the top and the bottom to be sure to take imperfections into account and if the width differs, use the longest measurement. It is a popular choice to order the blinds 1 1/8” wider than the exterior iof the trim to completely hide the trim when the blind is closed.
Height: Measure the height on both sides. If the height differs due to imperfection, use the longest measurement.
- Measuring the width of each section for a bay window:
Please refer the the diagrams below. The solid line represents the actual window and the doted line is exactly 2 1/2” away from the window. You can actually trace a line on your ceiling to facilitate taking the measurements. It is not even necessary to erase this line as it will also facilitate the installation and the fixture will be hiding it. Take the measurement from each section on the dotted line and subtract 1/4”.
