Measurement

MEASURING GUIDE

Here at Custom Track Services we have made it simple for you to measure with the following steps. There are two ways to install window blinds, inside-mounted blinds are installed within the window and outside-mounted blinds are installed to cover the window frame.

To help you measure you will need a metal tape measure (measurements preferred in inches). When measuring inside-mounted blinds take in account the depth measurement and any obstructions. When measuring the outside-mounted blinds take in account any obstructions.


Measuring for windows requiring INSIDE mount

STEP 1   Measure the width inside the window frame at the top, middle and bottom to allow for variances in construction. Use the smallest measurement of the window width so the blinds clear the sides of the window frame.

STEP 2   Measure the height inside the window frame from the top of the opening to the sill at the left, middle and right to allow for variances in construction. Use the smallest measurement of the window height so the blinds fit within the opening.

STEP 3   Measure the depth inside the window frame at the left, middle and right to allow for variances in construction. Use the smallest measurement of the window depth in order to achieve a proper fit.

STEP 4   Look for any obstructions inside the window frame. This is an important step which could affect the installation of the window covering.

STEP 5   Select your preferred inside-mounted window coverings.

Measuring for windows requiring OUTSIDE mount

STEP 1   Measure the width to the nearest 1/8 of an inch between the outer most points where the window covering will be placed.

STEP 2   Measure the height to the nearest 1/8 of an inch between the highest and lowest points where the window covering will be placed.

STEP 3   Look for any obstructions outside the window frame. This is an important step which could affect the installation of the window covering.

STEP 4   Select your preferred outside-mounted window coverings. Keep in mind, if installing on a wallboard, you may need to order extension brackets.
