Check Measure Worksheet

Things to Remember

  • Always measure in millimetres (mm)
  • Measure all windows, even those that appear to be the same width and height
  • Do not take any deductions (iseekblinds will do this for you)
  • Ensure you are aware of the Stacking Height of your blind - see table below

Inside Mount

For Inside mounted Aluminium Venetians, measure the hard width at the top of your window, through the centre of your window and at the bottom of your window.

Take the shortest measurement as your Width

Next measure the hard drop from the inside top Left of your window to the inside bottom Left of your window, through the centre of your window and from the inside top Right side of your window to the inside bottom Right of your window.

Take the shortest measurement as your Drop

Make sure there is a minimum of 30 millimetres’ depth in your window recess for flush inside mounting. With this depth, your blind will go up and down without any obstruction.

Ensure you look for any knobs, handles, winders or the inner window frame that may obstruct the blind. If you have any obstructions you will need to mount your blind to the outside of your window frame.

Do not take any deductions, iseekblinds will do this for you.

Choose which side you would like your controls – Left or Right

Outside Mount

If your Aluminium Venetian is to be outside mounted, measure the width from the outside edge of the architrave to the outside edge of the architrave at the top of the window frame.

Next measure the hard drop from the top outside edge of the architrave to the bottom outside edge of the architrave. This measurement may be increased if you want your blind to drop past the bottom of your window frame or to the floor.

Choose which side you would like your controls – Left or Right

* Please note: iseekblinds will not make any deductions for Outside Mounted Blinds

The Stack heght of you venetian when raised is important to consider for Door ways

Stack Height Guide

Drop of Blind (mm) 500 1000 1500 2000
Stack Height (mm) 46 64 82 100

Corner Windows

If you have a corner window where the blinds need to meet for maximum privacy, measure one blind as a through blind and one blind as a butt blind. When measuring the butt blind you need to deduct 32mm off the measurement.
