How to Measure  

Roman Blinds are better suited to an Outside mount and can make a great feature of your window. 

Consider using a sunscreen roller blind inside the window frame for daytime privacy and light control.


Measure the width from the edge of the architrave to the edge of the architrave at the top of your window frame, then add approximately 50mm for each side (if space permits) to give you better light control and privacy.


Measure the drop from the top of the architrave to 50mm past the bottom of the architrave for all elevated windows.

If your window drops to the floor measure from the top of the architrave to 20 mm above the floor - this will allow your fabric to settle and stretch over time.

Take 3 measurements. Measure on the LHS, through the centre, and on the RHS. Take the smallest measurement as your drop.

Please note: iseekblinds will not make any deductions for outside mounted blinds.  The measurements you order will be the exact size of the Roman blind you receive.

Roman blind Stack height

Stack Height

If you want to raise your roman blind above the window frame to maximise your view, the stack height of a roman blind is approximately 300mm.

Take this into consideration when measuring your drop.

Michael's Tips

  • Always measure in millimetres (mm)
  • Always use a steel tape measure - make sure the tape measure is straight and tight when you take your measurements.  
  • Measure all windows, even those that appear to be the same width and height
  • Add your room name to each of your blinds as you order them.
  • Do not take any deductions 
  • Measure at the top of the window frame where the blind is to be installed.  This is where your brackets will be placed.
  • If you live near the coast, order your blinds with stainless steel chains.
