How to Measure for Wood Blinds

Tips to getting started

  • Use a steel tape measure for accuracy, and provide all measurements to the nearest 1/8"
  • Determine if your window has sufficient depth to install as an Inside Mount
  • Always measure width (left to right) first and height (top to bottom) second

Determine Inside or Outside Mount

  • Inside mount wood blinds will fit inside the window opening. (Recommended)
    • Cleaner look
    • Most energy efficient
  • Outside mount wood blinds will cover beyond your window opening in width and height
    • Minimizes light gaps for more privacy and light control
    • Recommended for out of square windows or with minimal depth

Measure for Inside Mount

Measure for Inside Mount - Width
  • Start measurement at the depth where your brackets will be installed
  • Measure width at the top, middle, and bottom of opening edge to edge
  • Record narrowest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8"
Measure for Inside Mount - Height
  • Start height in 3 places left, middle and right edge to edge
  • Record tallest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8"

**Inside Mount Blinds will have a small deduction taken by the factory to fit inside the opening**


Measure for Outside Mount

  • Measure the width of the area you want to cover (1 1/2" overlap on each side recommended)
  • Record measurement
Measure for Outside Mount - Width
  • Determine where you want the top of your wood blind to be positioned and mark the spot
  • Measure height to be covered from the top of marked position to top of sill. If no sill exist, measure below the opening to your desired length
  • Record measurement
Measure for Outside Mount - Height

**Outside Mount Blinds will be made to your exact measurement**
