How to Measure Faux Wood Blinds

(Part 1)



Preparing Working & Tips:

1. Use a steel tape measure for best accuracy measurements.

2. Make sure the faux wood blinds will be go with inside mount or outside mount.

3. Pls make sure your window has enough depth if you are considering an inside mount. 

Window deep need to be greater than or equal to 6cm.

4. Always measure width (left to right) first, and then height (top to bottom).

5. Recording your measuring width & height



Choose Inside or Outside mount:

Inside mount faux wood blinds will mount within the window inner frame.

* We recommend measure the top, middle and bottom three positions, and take the shortest dimensions as blinds width.

* Also the same way as measuring the window inner frame height, the shortest dimensions as blinds height.


Outside mount faux wood blinds will mount outside your window opening

* Measure the area you want to cover (how far you want the blind to overlap the window opening)

* We recommend window width plus 10cm as the curtain width and height plus 10cm as the height of the curtain.

Step 1:

Determine the blinds mount position first, mark one end and fix a mounting bracket. 

With the valance of the blinds to measure the width, such a measurement method is more accurate. 

After keeping the valance level, mark the position of the other end and fix the bracket.
