Made to Measure Or Custom Blackout Blinds

Looking for appropriate window coverings for the non-standard sized windows is quite a task. Nevertheless, the charm associated with having old designs of windows in odd sizes can’t be denied. They surely add to the grace of your house. It’s not difficult to understand that most manufacturers produce blackout blinds by standard sizes - as they sell the most, thus making a better business proposition for the producers.

A little planning can solve most problems that one comes across while designing or redecorating your home and getting blinds for windows of non-standard sizes is not so difficult a problem that can’t be taken care of the same way. The problem in its totality can be broken down to a few steps, which if taken logically will surely lead to successful procurement of window coverings for windows of any size or shape. So, here we go:

The most important, rather crucial measure for buying any window dressing is to ascertain the size of your window. You should understand that the size of the covering is not the same as the size of the window because of the extra length by which the covering hangs down the window. So, having measured the length and width of the window you need to add that margin by which you like the curtain to hang below the base of the window. The golden rule for correct measurement is to measure twice and cut once. Simply put, it means that you note down the measurements on a piece of paper and retake the sizes once again to see that the results tally. The length is measured between the uppermost and the bottommost points of the window whereas width is measured by measuring the distance between the two walls of the window, from left to right.

Once you are sure of having taken the accurate measurements and rechecked the same, you can order your blinds. Irrespective of your source of purchase, whether it is from a store or you prefer ordering online, you are going to need these dimensions, you so painstakingly measured. So, don’t leave them back home while ordering your stuff!
