Hints & Tips

 

Always look out for things like window handles or tiles. You'll need to take their position into account to ensure a perfect fit. All our blinds can be fitted into the face of your window frame or wall, or into the top of the lintel. This gives you complete control over the positioning of your blind. If you have any questions about measuring your window, please feel free to contact us on 01257 276868 or email : info@chorleywindowblinds.co.uk

Measuring vertical blind slats

Do's

When measuring vertical blind slats measure the exact length of the slat when laid out flat from the top of the material to the bottom of the material.

Don'ts

Do not measure the full drop of the window because this measurement does not allow for the depth of the rail and the operating gap of the louvres.

N.B  Typically the length of a louvre or slat needs to be about 5cm shorter than the drop of the window to allow for the headrail, the hanger and the operating gap at the bottom of the louvre, if you order the louvre using the full drop of the window, the louvre will be about 5cm too long.

If there is any doubt give us a call, or email us.

To Recap

Remember only measure the length of the slat / louvre not the window drop.

Most of our blinds will be made on the premises to the highest standards using top quality materials and fittings.

We will not be using budget materials or fittings eg: for Roller Blinds, we use aluminium tubing, and for Vertical blinds we use the Omega wide bodied system for a better look, smoother, and less noisy operation. This system also allows for the hooks on the track to be replaced easily (just slot old one out & new one in) if damaged, unlike many other budget systems that would need the track to be removed and repaired at a cost to you.

Quick Blind Measurement Guide

-----------------

Don,t forget our Free No Obligation Measure & Quotation Service

-----------------

All our blinds can be fitted into the face of your window frame, wall, or into the top lintel. This gives you complete control over the fitting of your new blind. There are generally two fitting options for your new blind, recess or exact.

 

Recess – This is the measurement you need to take if you want your blind to fit inside the window recess.

Exact – This is the measurement you need to take if you want your blind to hang outside the recess overlapping the window recess.

Handy Hint – Always use a steel tape measure and write down your measurements in millimetres (cm-mm) for the greatest accuracy.

How to measure for a Recess Fitting :

Width – Measure the inside width of the window recess at the top, middle and bottom. Use the narrowest width measurement.

Drop – Measure the height of the window at the left, centre and right. Use the shortest height measurement.

 

How to measure for Exact external recess fitting :

 

Width & Drop - Measure the the recess as above but use the widest width and height measurements & then add on the amount you require to overlap the recess on the width & height on each side eg : If you want the blind to cover the recess by 30mm each side on the width & height then add 60mm to width & height.

Our mission is simple, to provide the largest range of high quality, affordable window blinds in the Chorley Area. 

You will have a choice of 1000's window blind fabrics with which to improve and enhance your home or office.
