    If you are installing 2 or more separate roller shades in the same window, please follow these measuring instructions

Width
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind or shade to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
  • Write down your measurement of the width, making sure that it is the first number of the measurement—this will be the total width of the roller blind from tip to tip. Keep in mind that the fabric on the roller will be either 1 ¾’’ or 1 ¼” less than your measured width, per the chart below, so you may want to increase the width measurement to make sure that the fabric is wide enough to cover the window opening:
