  Inside Window Recess:

Measure the width ( A ) on the left, the middle and the right inside the window recess from wall to wall. Measure the width of your recess in 3 places (top, middle and bottom) and give us the smallest measurement.

Measure the Drop ( B ) in 3 different positions inside the recess from the top of the recess to the window sillMeasure the drop of your recess in 3 places and give us the smallest measurement.

- We will send your blinds minus the correct allowance for the blinds to fit. Please note that the width of the fabric on a roller blind is 4cm narrower than the overall width of the blind. This is because the mechanism is wider than the fabric..
