Multiple fitting options are available for standard windows.

**Choose from the options below**

#### Inside Recess

Measure the width of the recess in at least three places where you would like to install your blind. You will use the smallest of these figures as your width measurement when ordering your blind.

**Important!**

**Check your depth** – To allow sufficient room for your blind to operate, it’s important that there is a minimum of 50mm depth clearance between the farthest point of any obstruction and the front of the recess.

**Check for any width obstructions** – Any obstructions in your recess (tiles, etc.) may reduce its effective width. Find the effective width by measuring between these points. Use this figure as your width measurement when ordering your blind. Please note: Your external battery pack can be top or face fixed into your recess, using the clips provided. (Please bear this in mind when measuring.)

Measure the recess height where you intend to install your blind, measuring at three separate points. Use the smallest of these figures as your drop measurement when making your order.

When ordering your blind, select the “Recess” fitting option. We’ll then adjust the measurement to allow for the appropriate brackets.

#### Exact Size

How far on each side do you want your blind to overlap your window recess? Be sure to include this overlap when making your width measurement.

**Important!**

**Overlap** – We suggest an overlap of at least 50mm on either side of the window recess. This means including an extra 100mm in your width measurement (in addition to the width of the recess). Top tip: check for any obstructions, such as light switches, to ensure that no objects conflict with the blind overlap.

**Improved light exclusion** – The greater the overlap, the more effective your blinds will be in eliminating light from outside.

First determine where you’d like your headrail and bottom bar to be positioned. Measure the distance between these two heights, from the top of the headrail to the bottom of the bottom bar, and use this as your drop measurement when ordering your blind.

**Important!**

**Overlap (top)** – We suggest an overlap of at least 50mm beyond the top of the window recess.

**Overlap (bottom)** – Top tip: Obstructions, such as a radiator, may limit your bottom overlap. If the window sill protrudes by over 50mm, the bottom of your blind should be placed at this point. Otherwise, the amount of bottom overlap is a matter of personal taste.

When making your order, select the “Exact” fitting option.

#### Option 3: Split Window

Mark with a pencil the point where you’d like to split your blinds.

**Handy Suggestions**

**Your split point** – Though the centre of the window is often the natural split point, a different place may be chosen to accommodate a mullion or window/door frame.

**Important note** – Your two blinds will have a small gap to make room for the brackets.

Measure the distance between your split point and the edge of the recess. Use this figure as your width measurement when ordering your blind.

**Important!**

**Outside your recess** – If your blind is to be installed outside the recess, make sure to measure between the split point and the place on your wall that you’d like your blind to finish.

**Check for any width obstructions** – Potential obstructions within your recess, such as tiles, could impact the effective width. Determine this effective width by measuring between these points, and use this figure as your width measurement when placing your blind order. Here’s a tip: If the smallest width measurement is at the bottom of your recess due to an obstruction (like tiles), consider ordering an uncut pelmet. This way, you can trim it to size, ensuring it fills the entire width of your window recess at the top.

**Mind the gap** – Your split blinds will have a small gap (around 5mm) to make room for the brackets. This is determined by the distance between the central brackets.

Measure the height of your recess at multiple points, and use the smallest measurement as the drop when ordering your blinds.

**Outside your recess** – If you’re installing your blind in front of your recess, rather than inside it, measure from where you would like the top of the headrail to start to where you would like the blind to finish.

**Check for any drop obstructions** – We suggest an overlap of at least 50mm beyond the top of the window recess.

**Overlap (bottom)** – Top tip: Obstructions, such as a radiator, may limit your bottom overlap. If the window sill protrudes by over 50mm, the bottom of your blind should be placed at this point. Otherwise, the amount of bottom overlap is a matter of personal taste.

Select the “Recess” fitting option if your blinds will lie within the recess; Select the “Exact” fitting option if your blinds will sit outside the recess.

#### Angled Bay Window

**Obstruction Depth**

For any obstructions, such as vents or handles, measure their furthest point from the window frame. This is the obstruction depth.

To calculate your total depth, add the obstruction depth to the clearance needed for your blinds (50mm for our Roman blinds). This new figure is your total depth.

**Useful Suggestions**

Example – For a window handle protruding 46mm from the window frame, the calculation would be as follows: 50mm + 46mm = 96mm total depth.

Make a note of the total depth – It’s important that you have this figure for the later steps.

### Do you have guide templates?

If you ordered blind samples, the templates should be included in your sample box.

**Choose from the options below**

We offer measuring templates for bay windows (opt for these when ordering samples).

Using your measuring templates, mark them at the total depth (obstruction depth plus the relevant measurement on the bay measuring guide — e.g. 70mm for 50mm wooden slats)./p>

Note: Check for obstructions like handles, and add their depth to the blind depth.

1.Lay the measuring cards flat on the window sill on either side of a bay corner.

2.Bring the cards together, aligning the tops with the window frames, until the total depth marks touch.

3.Keeping the cards flush to the window frames, use a pencil to mark where the total depth marks touch the window sill.

4.Repeat for each bay corner.

5.Mark end points based on your preference, being mindful of any obstructions.

Now, you have measuring points at each corner and two end points. Measure the distance between the two points for each window. This is the width measurement for ordering each blind.

**End Points**

Measure the distance between the two measuring points for each window. This will give you the width measurement to use when ordering each blind.

For each window, measure the drop in three places. Use the smallest of these measurements as your drop figure when ordering your blind.

When ordering, choose the “Recess” fitting option, indicating that adjustments for brackets should be made.

Here’s how you can create your own measuring templates using paper and a pen or pencil:

1. Lay two sheets of paper side by side.

2. With a ruler or tape measure, mark both sheets at the total depth (calculated in Step 1).

Please be aware: Inspect your window for obstructions like handles or vents. Include the depth of any obstruction to your blind’s depth.

1.Position measuring cards flat on the window sill at each side of a bay corner.

2.Align the cards, tops flush against the window frames, until the total depth marks touch.

3.Keep the cards flush and total depth marks in contact, marking the sill where they meet.

4.Repeat for each bay corner.

5.Mark your end points, being aware of any obstructions. These determine where your blinds will fit on each side.

Now, you have measuring points at each corner and two end points. Measure the distance between the two points for each window. This is the width measurement for ordering each blind.

Measure the distance between the two measuring points for each window. This will give you the width measurement to use when ordering each blind.

For each window, measure the drop in three places. Use the smallest of these measurements as your drop figure when ordering your blind.

When ordering, choose the “Recess” fitting option, indicating that adjustments for brackets should be made.

#### Square Bay Window

**Choose from the options below**

#### Front Primary

Measure the total width of the bay’s front window, including the frame. Use this figure as your width measurement when you order your front blind.

**Important!**

**Obstruction depth** – For any obstructions, such as vents or handles, measure their furthest point from the window frame. This is the obstruction depth; please make a note of this figure.

To calculate your total depth, add the obstruction depth (previously calculated) to the clearance needed for your blinds (50mm for our Roman blinds). This new figure is your total depth.

**Useful Suggestions**

Example – For a window handle protruding 46mm from the window frame, the calculation would be as follows: 50mm + 46mm = 96mm total depth.

Make a note of the total depth – It’s important that you have this figure for the later steps.

Mark the total depth with a pencil on either side of your square bay window, as shown. In later steps, these marks are referred to as “total depth marks”.

Measure the distance from your total depth mark to where you want the return blind to end. This is your width measurement for ordering the return blind. Repeat for the other side of the square bay, ensuring you have a width measurement for each side blind.

Measure the height of the bay in at least three locations where you want to install your blind. Use the smallest of these figures as your drop measurement when ordering your blinds.

When ordering, choose the “Recess” fitting option, indicating that adjustments for brackets should be made.

#### Side Primary

Measure the entire width of the bay’s side windows, including the frames. Use these measurements as your width references when ordering your side blinds.

**Important!**

**Obstruction depth** –

Identify any obstructions, such as vents or handles, and measure their farthest point from the window frame. This measurement represents the obstruction depth. Measure and note the obstruction depth for each of your side windows; you’ll need these figures for later.

To calculate your total depth, add the obstruction depth (previously calculated) to the clearance needed for your blinds (50mm for our Roman blinds). This new figure is your total depth. Perform this calculation for each side window.

**Useful Suggestions**

Example – For a window handle protruding 46mm from the window frame, the calculation would be as follows: 50mm + 46mm = 96mm total depth.

Make a note of the total depth for each side window – It’s important that you have these figures for the later steps.

Mark the total depth on either side of your square bay window using a pencil. These marks are referred to as “total depth marks” in later steps.

Measure the distance between your two total depth marks. When ordering your front blind, use this figure as your width measurement.

Measure the recess height where you intend to install your blind, measuring at three separate points. Use the smallest of these figures as your drop measurement when making your order.
