Common Blind Measuring Mistakes
The Blind Factory team is here with reliable measuring and installation services. While this process seems like something you can handle yourself, it’s more complicated than you think.
Take a look at some of the common measuring mistakes homeowners face, including how we can fix the problem:
Measuring the old blinds
When trying to purchase new blinds, many homeowners make the mistake of measuring their old blinds instead of the window opening. This can lead to buying blinds that are too narrow.
Assuming all window openings are the same size
When purchasing multiple blinds or shutters, you can’t simply use the measurements from one window. While they appear to be the same size, they may be off by an inch or more. That said, be sure to always measure every single window.
Taking measurements smaller than the window opening
Before buying new blinds, always measure the entire length of the window opening—not the size you want the blinds to be. This can result in buying blinds that are far too small. Blind installers make the calculations and deductions for you, so always measure the window opening from edge to edge.
Failing to measure the right areas
Homeowners should always measure window openings in three different places; the bottom, middle, and top. While no two window openings are identical, it’s also unlikely that your windows are perfectly square. Make sure you have these calculations on hand when purchasing your blinds.
