3. Measuring for Inside Recess Venetian Blinds (Recess Fit)
- Width: Measure the width of the window recess in three places (top, middle, and bottom). Use the smallest measurement.
- Drop: Measure the drop of the window recess in three places (left, middle, and right). Use the smallest measurement.
Pro Tip: Account for Obstructions: Ascertain that no impediments like window latches, tiles, or intricate trims will hinder the Venetian blind's functionality.
Pro Tip: Acknowledge the Depth: Venetian blinds, with their slats and mechanisms, necessitate a particular depth. If your window recess is less profound (below 70mm for Venetian blinds), you might ponder installing the blind externally to sidestep potential obstructions.
Note on Slat and Mechanism Size for Recess Venetian Blinds: When you procure a recess Venetian blind, understand that the slats' width will be marginally narrower, by approximately 10mm to 15mm, than the measurement you provide due to the mechanisms and brackets. This adjustment ensures the blind's seamless operation inside the window recess. Always bear this in mind when envisioning the final appearance post-installation.
