Measuring Shutters for Bay Windows
When taking approximate dimensions for bay windows, You should consider that although the bay window is made of many smaller windows, we will make the shutter as one unit. Therefore, it’s easiest to measure the width around the bay at the outer edges.
For the height, measure from the sill to the ceiling, or if the ceiling is a lot higher than the top of the window, then measure just to the top of the highest PVC Strip.
Measuring Shutters or Blinds for Standard Windows
When measuring standard windows, it’s really simple… just take the width of the window and the height of the window. If you have a recess, just measure inside the recess. If you don’t have a recess, then just measure the window frame with a bit of overlap (say around 5cm each side, and top and bottom).
Measuring Blinds for Bay Windows
Taking sizes for blinds on bay windows is quite straightforward. Just think that every section of the bay will have its own blind, then measure each section of the bay. Try to measuring into the corners of each bay post rather than the glass size.
Measuring for Perfect Fit Blinds
The perfect fit system is designed to fit each pane of glass. Therefore, you must measure each pane of glass and consider that there will be one blind per pane. You just need the width x height.
Measuring for Outside Awnings
Outside awnings also only require two measurements for pricing purposes. The width that the awning needs to cover and the projection (from the wall).
