A tailor made fit 

Made to measure blinds are tailor made for your exact requirements rather than being mass produced.  You can have confidence that the blinds will fit your windows when they arrive with no alterations necessary before they can be installed, saving both time and money.  If you're running a business, these are two very important considerations. Having a tailor made is a great way to ensure you get the right size and style blinds fit for offices and schools.


The right size for your windows 

Because they're mass produced and tend to be cheaper, the range of sizes available in ready-made blinds is limited.  The nature of commercial and educational buildings means that window sizes are not standard. Finding a ready-made blind to fit might be tricky but that problem is removed with the made to measure alternative. The same applies to period and non-conventional places of business such as chapels or barn conversions.   


Greater choice 

Ready-made blinds are available in a limited range of fabrics and finishes. Made to measure blinds are custom-made to your requirements meaning that you can have greater input in terms of materials and fabric. You can find a range of different styles of blinds such as shade blinds.

Made to measure blinds are the right choice for business

Opting for made to measure blinds makes sense if you want to prioritise quality and longevity. They fit better, are carefully made and you have a wider choice of fabrics and materials, often of a much higher quality than you would find with ready-made alternatives. This means that hard-wearing bespoke custom-made blinds will last longer, saving money in the long run. If you require blinds to fit windows that are non-standard in dimensions or location, then made to order blinds are the only real option.


Made to measure blinds meet your exact requirements and are manufactured to the very highest standards. This gives them added durability ensuring that you don't have to replace them for many years, a key priority in commercial settings.

How do you measure made to measure blinds? 

The principles behind measuring for made to order blinds is relatively simple. Firstly, you'll need to establish whether you're measuring for recess fitting or exact fitting.  If you're measuring for a window that's set in a recess of more than 60mm you should follow the following method.  In both instances ensure you use a metal tape measure as cloth ones can often give inaccurate measurements. 


Measuring for recess fitting 

  1. Measure the width of the recess across the top, bottom and middle. Write down the smallest of the 3 measurements. 

  2. Next measure the drop of the recess across the left, right and middle. Write down the smallest of the 3 measurements. 


 If the window does not have a recess or one of less than 60mm use the following method for exact fitting. 

Measuring for exact fitting 

  1. Measure the outside area of your window from where you want the blind to start and end.

  2. Measure the window from top to bottom from where you want the blind to start and end.
