Measuring Your Door Blinds for the Perfect Fit

Okay, take a deep breath. We’re about to dive into the world of measurements. But hey, don’t break out in cold sweat. This isn’t your high school math class. Measuring for your door blinds is way simpler and a lot more rewarding.

Measuring A Door For Blinds

1. Begin With Basics: Width x Height

Start by measuring the width from left to right of the inside edges of your door frame, where the blind will be fitted. Then, measure the height from the top inside edge down to the window sill or bottom of the door. Always measure from at least three different points for both width and height to account for any irregularities. The smallest width and the longest height measurements are your go-to dimensions.

2. Decide On Recess Or Exact

If you want your blinds to sit inside the door frame, you’re looking at a recess measurement. But if you prefer them to cover the frame entirely, go for the exact measurement. Each has its own charm. Recess offers a neat look, while exact gives a layered feel.

3. Mind the Obstructions

Got handles or other protruding fixtures on your door? You don’t want your stylish new blinds getting in a tiff with them. Make sure you account for any obstructions while measuring.

4. Dive Into the Depth

If you’re opting for perfect fit blinds, understanding the depth of your door’s glazing is crucial. A simple depth gauge can help you determine this. Remember, a snug fit ensures seamless operation and a posh appearance.

5. Double (or Triple) Check

It’s always better to measure twice and order once. Be sure of your measurements. If in doubt, measure again or get a second opinion. And if you’re still feeling wobbly on your measurement feet, fret not! Our comprehensive guide to the best fitting for your blinds is your trusty aide.

Got your measurements locked and loaded? Fabulous! Now, choosing the right type of blind becomes an exciting adventure rather than a daunting task. Remember, your door blinds should reflect your style while ensuring the function is on point. Happy measuring and happy shading!

Want More Blinding Brilliance?

Remember, the key things to consider when dressing your doors are style, functionality, and of course, the colour you choose. It’s not just about shading; it’s about making a statement. So, let’s make those doors dashing!
