How to measure for blinds
Four Steps for Success
Your steel measuring tape is the most accurate assistant and should be used to measure the width.
A measuring app (iOS or Android are free) is easier to use than the measuring tape and will let you measure the height without a ladder.
Plan ahead. Decide if you want to install your shade within your window frame (inside mount) or above your window into the wall or ceiling (outside mount). Rolli comes with brackets compatible for both.
Measure either your window frame (inside mount) or the width of the wall or ceiling (outside mount) where your shade will go. Round down to the nearest 1/8".
The app makes it easy to measure without needing a ladder or messing with your measuring tape.
Submit the tallest measurement, no worries if you overestimate and have a bit too much fabric.
We guarantee Rolli Shades will fit your window for two shades/order for free. We'll either ship you a new custom fabric, entirely new shade, or take yours back and cut it to the right size.
Where your shade will go! You'll need to measure either inside your window frame or above your window on the wall where you want the shade to hang.
We don't ship out shades that are over wider than 100" or taller than 120" through our product pages. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for larger shades.
