At Vertibelle Creations Inc. in Toronto, we want to make ordering your artistic window blinds simple and easy. That’s why we provide some tips and advice on measuring for blinds, ordering your blinds, and installing blinds with step by step instructions.
When you’re measuring for blinds or any other window treatment, first take a steel measuring tape and measure the window to the nearest eighth of an inch (don’t round). Be sure to indicate which measurements are the width and height. It’s very easy to get the two mixed up. Our blinds are custom made to the sizes you provide us. If these sizes are incorrect, it’s impossible to change the blinds. Just take your time measuring and double check your measurements.
Inside Mount (IM): Start by measuring the opening width at the top, centre, and bottom of the window. Record the narrowest width. Then measure the height on the left, right, and centre, recording the longest height. When preparing your blinds, we will make width deductions to allow for operating clearance.
Outside Mount (OM): Once again start by measuring the width. If you have room, add at least 3” to each side of the window opening to allow for minimum light gap and maximum privacy. Then measure the opening height for the outside mount, adding a minimum of 2” in height for mounting brackets above the opening. You can also add your desired overlap for the bottom.
Inside Mount (IM): Measure the width in the window’s centre, top, and bottom. Remember to record your narrowest width. Move on to measure the height at the centre, left, and right. Record the shortest height. We will allow for operating clearance.
Outside Mount (OM):Measure the opening width, and, if possible, add at least 4” on each side of the window opening for a minimum light gap. Now, measure the opening height and add a minimum of 2 ½” to the height which allows for space of the mounting brackets above the opening. You can add your desired overlap at the bottom.
