Measuring and Fitting Sunwood and Timberlux Wood Blinds

To enable you to get the correct size for your New Blinds, accurately measure the opening for both the Width and the Drop in 3 places as shown.

Make a small sketch of your window and accurately write down the sizes, always measure twice to check your measurements.

If possible it is best to measure in 'mm' to enable a more accurate Finish


State if the measurement taken is 'Inside / Recess' or 'Outside / Blind Size'

Blind Size    - Your Blind is supplied at the width entered

Recess Size - Your Blind is supplied at less -12mm to allow for side Clearance.




We know Bay Windows can often be difficult to measure so to help our customers with this we can supply the headrail fixing brackets which can then be fitted into position to enable a more accurate and clearer picture of how the Blinds will be positioned.


To allow for any handle clearence at the back of the Blind we would suggest making a line in front of your windows at 110mm which will give you the front of the Blinds headrail and provide approximately 45-50mm window handle clearence, overlap pencil line at corners or intersections and use the front line to give you your Blind Width measurements.

You could use a 2 simple pieces of A4 paper and draw a line at 110mm on the paper to use a template for this purpose. Mark where the lines cross or intersect to give you the end of each blind.

Order your Blinds as normal at the your nearest estimated Width and at the same time send us an email requesting the number of sets of headrail fixing Brackets that you require. 1 x Bracket set for each Blind.

We will Send out the Brackets to you and after fitting the Brackets in the correct position re measure and send us your final width measurements to enable the Blinds to be manufactured at the correct size.

An outside of Bracket to Bracket measurement can be ordered as a standard Recess Measurement or you can give an exact Blind Size Measurement of the actual Blind Width required if you prefer.
