Taking Perfect Measurements for Roller Blinds in East Kilbride

by | May 4, 2016 | Window Coverings

If you are considering roller blinds in East Kilbride you will have to be able to take perfect measurements. The old saying “measure twice, cut once” is sage advice, especially when it comes to blinds. An ill-fitting blind is just not an option. You will need a few tools to be able to get the right measurements. It can be stressful to do this on your own but with a little hard work it is possible to probably get the exact measurements. Here is a list of the tools that you will need:

* A sturdy ladder

* A person to hold the ladder

* Something to write with

* Paper to write on

* A tape measure

* Clear access to the window

Grab your ladder and an extra set of hands to hold it! Take down everything that is currently hanging on or in the window. Now you have to decide if you will mount the blinds recessed inside the windows casement or if they will be mounted outside the windows casement. It can be difficult choice to make because it will affect the look that you get from the blinds. Take your time, your friend/family member won’t mind hanging on to the ladder so you do not fall off while you decide. If you are going to go recessed you will have to measure from point to point on the inside of the window. Measure at the top and be sure that you measure across in a straight line. If you are going with an outside mount you will have to measure from point to point, first find the centre point on each side of the frame, then measure from those two points.

After all that you can clearly see why so many people wind up taking the wrong measurements and get stuck with blinds that just do not fit right. It can be a frustrating experience. Of course there is a much better way to know for sure your blinds will fit.
