2)Always measure every window individually, check measurements in a minimum of three different locations. Windows can sometimes be out of square. Refer to measurement video and specific measurement documents: Face Fit, Face Fit No Architraves, Recess Fit, Corner Blind Deductions, Pelmet, which can be found at bottom of this page or at the bottom resources bar (Downloads). 

3)Always measure the width measurement and then the drop measurement in that order. Make sure you write measurements to the exact millimetre.

4) Always document the side you wish your Chain Drive to be positioned, at time of measurement.

5) Always look for any obstructions ie; door/window hardware, which may interfere with your blind’s functionality.

7) Always Triple check your measurements and blind details you have documented.

It is always recommended if you are finding it difficult to differentiate between one millimetre, you write down the lesser measurement.Corner windows are handled different refer to our how to measure corner window and deductions at the bottom of this page or in the bottom resources bar (Downloads).

9) If you are measuring with someone else, make sure everyone is reading the tape measure the same way, before you start measuring the entire house lot of blinds. Make sure to read all measurements out aloud and confirm measurements by repeating your assistant’s measurement, especially before writing the finalised measurements on your measurement form.
