Wooden Blind Measuring Guides

Use your exact measurements

The more precise you are, the better. We will not accept responsibility for measurement errors when you order.

We offer guides for different types of measurements – Recess, Exact Blind Size or Bracket to Bracket. For best results, use a steel tape measure or  laser measuring device (electronic tape measure) when measuring as other tape measures may stretch or bend, producing false readings.

For recess sizes, we make deductions to the blind size you provide to ensure the blind fits within the recess. (This is explained in greater detail below.)
