Best Way to Measure Windows for Blinds

Inside Mount
Measuring Inside Mount
Inside mount window treatments often provide the finished look that is commonly desired. For this mounting option, it is important that you find a minimum 1/2″ flat mounting surface within your window casing to mount the brackets (1/2″ is a general rule of thumb that may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer). It is important to make six measurements on each window: 3 horizontal (side to side) and 3 vertical (top to bottom). These measurements should be taken in the positions depicted in the image to the right. To ensure the window treatment will fit properly, take the smallest horizontal measurement and the longest vertical measurement. Be sure to record your measurements to the nearest 1/8″. It may be tempting to assume two similar windows are the same size, but it is important to measure every window individually. You should also read through the outside mount measuring instructions to ensure that they don’t apply to your situation. Once you’ve measured your windows, you’re ready to find out where to purchase your blinds.
