Once you have decided on a type of made to measure blind, there are a few other decisions that you will need to make when placing your order with us. If you wish to discuss these please contact us and we can talk through the options with you.
Our roller blinds may be ordered as either front roll or back roll as shown in images. To help decide which option you prefer please consider the following:
We are able to make blinds up to the following widths:
If your window is larger than this you will need to split the window into two or three blinds. We suggest that you split the blinds where there is a mullion (wood or aluminium vertical divider between windows) in the window.
All blinds have controls on the left or right to operate the blind, lift and lower and tilt, so you need to decide which side is the most convenient for the controls to go on. Take into consideration things such as the position of furniture in the room, window or slider openings (so the chains don’t flap in the wind) and which side you tend to access a window from.
If a window is relatively high then you may want to consider making the chain longer so that it is at a convenient height to operate the blind. Standing next to the window work out what would be the most convenient length of the control for you to operate the blind from.
The control length is measured from the top of window down, so if it is an inside fit place your measuring tape on the inside of the frame at the top and measure down finding a measurement that will make the blind easy to operate.
If you have a large window with a sliding door you will need to carefully consider how to fit the blinds and the type of blinds you are going to install in this window to ensure the ideal operation and function of the blinds and the sliding door.
The key considerations for fitting and measuring the window where an inside fit is preferred are as follows:
The reduction in headroom is approximately as follows:
roller blinds - 70mm
vertical blinds - 50mm
venetian blinds - drop - 2000mm, 2200mm, 2400mm
venetian blinds - stack height - 230mm, 245mm, 260mm
Sometimes it may be necessary to fit the blind(s) to the outside of the door frame or wall to achieve adequate clearance.
