How to Measure your Window
First you must decide if you will have your blinds on the outside of your window or if you’d like to have them fit on the inside of your window. When you order your blinds online, they will ask you this. Avoid using a fabric tape measure as they tend to give a little compared to a steel tap measure.
When measuring the inside be sure to get the exact width of your window. Take the measurement from the top, to the center to the bottom of the window. Keep the smallest measurement in mind. Then you’ll need to get the measurements from the left, the center, and finally the right side of the window opening. Keep the largest of the 3 in mind.
If measuring the outside of the window, then decide if you want the blind size to be that of the window trim or if you want it to fit to the dimensions of the wall itself. Take the same measurements but be sure to take into consideration the space needed for the light you want to enter the room and for the mounting brackets.
Choosing your Colors, Textures, & Designs
The types of blinds you have installed will have an impact of the overall style and theme of your room. Be sure to spend some time thinking about the proper colors, textures and designs so that they will not contradict the rest of your furniture and overall decor. The website you choose to order your blinds online from will have a variety of styles to choose from. Make sure you don’t rush this decision and take your time picking out your blinds.

Having this information ready will make ordering your blinds much easier. Finally enter your delivery address and have your blinds quickly delivered straight to your home or business.
