How to Measure for Blinds
  1. Mount Type – Indicate how the blind will be mounted. Options include a) wall mount, b) ceiling mount, or c) inside enclosure such as within a window casing or wall enclosure.
  2. Height Measurement—This measurement represents the total height of the blind when fully open.
  3. Inside Measurement – Use this measurement to de-scribe the width measured inside an enclosure such as a window casing when the item will be installed inside the enclosure. Most blinds are installed in this fashion. A standard 1/4 inch will be deducted from this meas-urement to determine the actual blind width required.
  4. OPTIONAL Outside Measurement – This measurement is used to represent the finished size of a blind regard-less of the inside measurement. This is typically pro-vided when the blind will be wall mounted outside or above an enclosure, or if the blind must be a specific size. Provide the actual measurement of the finished blind. It may extend past an enclosure that needs to be covered at your discretion.

*All measurements should be in inches.
