Are My Windows Deep Enough?

At Blinds.com, we strive to make ordering blinds online both easy and exciting.  Here is an answer to a common FAQ that should help make your experience just that!

Window depth should actually be the first thing a consumer looks into – even before selecting their product!  You can measure your windows perfectly, but if you don’t have the right depth, the blind will still not fit in the window – frustrating right?

Be sure to measure your window depth first!

 

Start out by using a steel measuring tape to see how deep your window is.

To note: Some windows have handles or other obstructions within the opening, so make sure to account for those as well.   You can find the best tips on how to measure for these unique openings under the special measurement consideration link on our site.
