When you are looking to place order for made to measure blinds you need to make sure that the measurements sent to the online store are perfect. So make sure you have followed the below given steps:

If you intend to opt for the outside mounted blinds then you should decide how much large made to measure blinds should be then your window. While measuring for outside mounted blinds you will need to take note of any major obstructions.

•Leave about two inches of space at the top, bottom and sides of the window for fitting the blinds. Such blinds have to be fitted on the outer half of the casement. Add some more inches to provide a good overlapping to the window. This will avoid any obstructions. Remember the made to measure blinds you install should provide adequate privacy but they should also allow sufficient amount of light into the rooms.
