INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Draw a rough sketch of the room on your scrap paper. The drawing does not have to be to scale, but it should be in the correct approximate shape. 

Step 2: Measure the lengths of the walls with your measuring tape, and note them on the corresponding walls in your diagram. 

Step 3: Measure the width and location of all windows and doors in the room and note on your scrap sheet. Note: Measure from one edge of the trim to next (trims are included in the window measurements.) 

Step 4: Add doors to your plan by first erasing the line where the door will be, and drawing a line perpendicular to the wall that is the length of the door, extending from the hinged side.

Step 5: Measure the dimensions and locations of all fixed-features, such as counters or dressers, in the room and note on your scrap sheet.

HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS OF YOUR ROOM

Step 1: Stand in POSITION 1 of your room and take a photo facing the opposite corner or wall, as illustrated in the example below:

Step 2:  Stand in POSITION 2 and take a photo facing the opposite wall.

Step 3:  Continue taking photographs at each of the 6 remaining positions, then look at your photos to make sure you’ve captured your entire room. If you feel the photos do not completely show your space, feel free to send us as many photos as you like.

 

HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR FURNITURE

Step 1: Stand in front of your piece of furniture, as in POSITION 1 below, and take a photo.

 Step 2:  Stand in POSITION 2 and take your second photo.

Step 3:  Take a look at your pix to see if they’re a good representation of the piece. Is it an accurate depiction of the finish or upholstery? If not, feel free to include as many additional photos as you think are necessary.

MEASURING FOR WINDOW TREATMENTS

Use a metal tape measure. (A fabric tape measure may stretch.)

 

Step 1: Select the type of mount. Decide whether shade should be mounted inside or outside the window frame.

NOTE: If your windows have a nice frame and have depth (from 1 3/4” to 2 1/2”) then use inside mount window treatment.

 

Step 2: Follow measuring instructions for the mount you’ve selected and record your measurements.

 

INSIDE MOUNT: Shade or blind will be mounted (recessed) inside the window frame.

A.  Measure the width of the opening. Because not all windows are exactly “square,” measure the width in three places: high, middle, and low. Record the SHORTEST width to the nearest 1/8”

B.  Measure the length of the opening. Record the LONGEST opening  to the nearest 1/8”

OUTSIDE MOUNT: Shade or blind will be mounted on the outside of the window frame.

A.  Measure the width of the area to be covered  (include window trim when applicable).

 The recommended overlap is at least 1 1/2” on each side. Measure inches to the nearest 1/8”

B.  Measure the length of the opening.

Be sure to measure from the top of opening/trim to the sill, bottom of the apron or the floor/carpet surface. Add 3” for bracket installation above the opening/trim.

For floor-length or sill-length blinds, subtract 3/8” for clearance.

For apron-length, add 1/2” for overlap length. Measure inches to the nearest 1/8”
