measuring for blinds

When you decide it’s time for new blinds, you’ll no doubt be scouring the internet and catalogues, trying to find the perfect style to suit your tastes and the decor of the room where the blinds will be fitted. As well as the style of the blinds, though, you also need to know whether you need a recess fitting or an exact fitting. In this article, we’ll talk you through the difference between the two types of fitting so you can make the right choice.

What is a recess measurement?

A recess measurement of your window is the measurement of the opening inside of it. The reason for this measurement is that a recess blind will fit into the opening of your window; it won’t overlap the walls on either side of it.

What is an exact-fitting measurement?

These measurements take into account the surface area of the window opening; this is because exact-fitting blinds are attached to the wall above the window, and they cover parts of the wall either side of said window.
