If you’re interested in buying blinds for your home, it’s vital to get the measurements right. Blinds can be a great way to add privacy and insulation from outside noise and light by covering up windows. But if they aren’t fitted correctly, all that hard work goes downhill fast! This write-up will show how exactly one should go about getting accurate measurements for your blinds.
When measuring for blinds, you’ll need to take three measurements: the width, the drop and the recess. The width is the window measurement from one side to the other. The drop is the measurement from the top of the window to the bottom. And the recess is the distance from the inside edge of the window frame to the glass.
To measure a window’s width, you’ll need to use either inches or centimetres. Make sure that your measuring tape is long enough to reach from one side of the frame across without being bent at any point! Once this has been determined, simply write down the measurement.
Next, measure the drop. Start at the top of the window and measure to the bottom. Again, note the measurement in inches or centimetres.
Finally, measure the recess. This is the distance from the inside edge of the window frame to the glass. Start at the top of the window and measure the glass and once done, write down this measurement.
If you’ve measured your windows correctly but still don’t get the right size blinds, don’t worry. You can do a few things to ensure your blinds fit properly.
First, try trimming the blinds to size. Most blinds come with a cutting guide that shows you how much to trim off.
If trimming the blinds doesn’t work, you can try mounting them outside the window frame. This way, they’ll cover the entire window and give you more privacy.
Finally, if all else fails, you can always return the blinds and get a new pair that’s the right size.
Now that you know how to measure for blinds, it’s time to choose the right type of blinds for your home. There are many different types of blinds on the market, so it’s important to do your research before you buy.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing blinds:
Blinds are a great way to add privacy, style and insulation to your home. When measuring for blinds, take the width, the drop and the recess into account. And when choosing blinds, keep in mind the type of window, the size of the window, the style of the room and your budget. With these tips in mind, you’re sure to find the perfect blinds for your home.
