Made to Measure Roller Blinds

How do I dress a big window? Should I choose roller blinds for my large window?

There a no rules for choosing fabrics for big windows. Large patterns though are a good choice, for example our new Herbaceous Border design depicting beautiful gentle flowers in soft pastel colours.  

The gentle trellis of Fruit Garden scales up the design and creates a fabric very suitable for large windows. Equally Pretty Maids with its timeless spot motif makes stunning curtains or blinds for large windows. Our design: Up The Garden Path makes beautiful big curtains and being a one colour print creates a simple Scandinavian look.

As far as the best way to dress a large window we would suggest roller blinds and curtains can be the right choice.

Bear in mind that the maximum size for roller and roman blinds is 240cm x 240cm, whereas curtains we can make to any size.

How to measure up for your Roller blind:

Inside a window recess

 Width: Measure the width of the recess from the left to the right (see E on the diagram) 

Length: Measure from the top of the recess to the bottom (see E on the diagram)

YOU ONLY NEED TO PROVIDE US WITH THE FULL RECESS MEASUREMENT - the maker will allow for the rolling mechanism when making the blinds (There will be a gap of about 1.5cm between the fabric and the recess wall which will allow some light through, even with a blackout lining)

Outside a window recess

Width: Measure the outside of the window recess (see F on diagram) and add at least 5cms on each side to minimise any light leaking through. 

Length: Measure from the required position above the window (again, we recommend adding at least 5cm) to the length you require (see F on the diagram)

This also applies to blinds that will be fitted to the outside of a door recess, we only need the width and length that you would like the finished blind to be.

Please note that if your roller blind is outside the recess, we have to allow for the mechanism at either side of the roller blind, which is usually 1.5cm each side. For example, if you want the fabric width of your blind to measure 100cm, you need to specify this upon placing your order otherwise our makers will assume it is the finished width, and cut the fabric down to 97cm with the remaining 3cm for the mechanism, i.e. 100cm full fabric width + 3cm for mechanism, making the finished width 103cm.

 Your Roller blinds will be delivered ready rolled complete with fittings.
