How to measure your window to order roller blinds?

Measure how tall your window is, from the floor to the inside of the top rail when it’s closed. Measure how wide your window is, from left to right with no divider in between. Measure the length of the window, from left to right when it’s fully closed. We use these measurements in order to figure out what size roller blind is best for your window. 

How to fit a Roller Blind

Fitting instructions (for Roller Shades):

1. Choose a header rail height that matches your window height

2. Use a level and mark along the baseboards where you want to install the brackets. Then simply follow these measurements:

3. The first bracket will have one end attached to your header rail using provided screws, on top of this bracket place the second bracket; make sure it is not on the same side as the head rail.

4. Use provided screws to attach the second bracket to your window frame

6. Turn both of them together until they are inline with each other and use a level to make sure they are parallel (horizontally)

7. Attach brackets together with provided screws

8. Hang roller shades onto rails

9. Adjust your roller shades by sliding them up or down – that’s it!

Measurements: As seen above measurements are really important – be honest with yourself when ordering blinds because it is very unlikely that you will get a perfect fit if your measurements are wrong.
