How to Measure - Inside / Outside Mount

Get Your DIY On!

In this video, Michael takes you through the super easy process of How to Measure your windows for both an Inside and Outside mounted single Roller Blind

INSIDE MOUNT

For Inside mounted roller blinds, measure the hard width at the top of your window. 

It is important that you take your width measurement from the top of the window as this is where your brackets will be fitted.

Next measure the hard drop from the inside top of your window to the inside bottom of your window.

Make sure there is a minimum of 60 millimetres’ depth in your window recess for flush inside mounting.

Generally, inside mounted roller blinds are Front rolled, which means that the fabric rolls of the front of the roll tube to avoid any knobs, winders or the inner window frame that may obstruct the blind.  This will also create a softer, more balanced look.

Decide on your blind control operation – Chain Drive or Motor

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

OUTSIDE MOUNT

If your roller blind 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.

Back rolling is generally used for outside mounting to keep the fabric tight to the architrave for maximum privacy and greater light control.
