Measuring for Vertical Blinds
Measure window width, adding 3" to each side to make sure the headrail overlaps properly. Measure the desired length, adding enough room for the headrail. If ordering floor-length verticals, subtract 1/2" from the total length for proper operation. Recommended for outside mount only.
Measuring for Roller Shades Inside Mount-width
Measure width inside frame at top of window and order that size as inside mount. Factory will deduct 1/8" to allow for bracket placement.
Measure area you want the shade fabric to cover. Shade should overlap window 1 1/2" on each side for best light control. Order that size as outside mount.
Note: Shades are available in standard lengths of 66". Shade fabric does not go to the end of the roller. It is approximately 3/8" narrower on each side.
Measuring for Horizontal Blinds Inside Mount-width
1" blinds need at least 1 1/2" window depth; 2" blinds at least 2 1/2". Measure width between bracket locations at the top, middle and bottom; use the narrowest measurement. Measure length from top inside casing to sill. On made-measure products, a slight deduction will be made from the width ordered to allow for the placement of brackets; see individual products for details.
Measure width of area to be covered, overlapping window by at least 1 1/2" on each side. Measure to desired length from top of casing or at least 2" above the window if there is no casing.
Measuring for Draperies Replacing existing draperies
Simply measure one draper panel for length and width, then multiply the width by two to get the total width for the pair.
When rods are already installed
Measure the rod width, including the corners, and add 4" so the center can overlap when the draperies are closed. Ready-made draperies come in standard lengths of 54", 63", and 84". To determine which length you need, simply measure the length from the top of the standard (white) traverse rod, or from the "eye" of the carrier on a decorative traverse rod.
