How to Measure for Blinds Atlanta Discount Blinds

Tips to getting started

  • Use a steel tape measure for accuracy, and provide all measurements to the nearest 1/8″
  • Determine if your window has sufficient depth to install as an Inside Mount 
  • Always measure width (left to right) first and height (top to bottom) second

Determine Inside or Outside Mount

  • Inside mount faux wood blinds will fit inside the window opening (Recommended)
  • Outside mount faux wood blinds will cover beyond your window opening in width and height
    • Minimizes light gaps for more privacy and light control
    • Recommended for out of square windows or windows with minimal depth

Measure for Inside Mount

Measure for Inside Mount - Width
  • Start measurement at the depth where your brackets will be installed
  • Measure width at the top, middle, and bottom of opening edge to edge
  • Record narrowest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8″
Measure for Inside Mount - Height
  • Start height in 3 places left, middle and right edge to edge
  • Record tallest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8″

**Inside Mount Blinds will have a small deduction taken by the factory to fit inside the opening**


Measure for Outside Mount

Measure for Outside Mount - Width
  • Measure the width of the area you want to cover (1 ½” overlap on each side recommended)
  • Record measurement
Measure for Outside Mount - Height
  • Determine where you want the top of your blind to be positioned and mark the spot
  • Measure height to be covered from the top of marked headrail position to top of sill. If no sill exist, measure below the opening to your desired length
  • Record measurement

**Outside Mount Blinds will be made to your exact measurement**

We looked at five blind companies in the metro area. These were the best price and the service was outstanding

Great experience with this company. The wait time was a bit longer than expected for the install, but the blinds look great. I had another company come out and give us a quote for the same exact blinds, but they were $600 more than Dave’s quote. Great quality and a great price. Thanks!

I had a great experience with Atlanta Discount Blinds. Dave, the owner, was professional and provided great customer service. He provided me with a free estimate as well as temporary blinds while I waited for my order. My blinds were installed in the estimated time frame given by Dave. Dean was the installer and he did an awesome job.The blinds look great! Dean also installed the blinds in the time frame that he provided for the day of install. I would recommend Atlanta Discount Blinds. They are affordable, honest, and professional. I love my new blinds!

I do architecture and construction management for a living. Dave and his team at Atlanta Discount Blinds are unbeatable!!! The price of their blinds, speed of delivery, absolute great customer service, and impeccable install is number one in the industry. Dave and his team came in and knocked it out of the park! I’d recommend these guys to anybody, so if you’re in the market for window coverings; the first person you should contact is Dave Ross.

We have had a number of Roman and roller shades installed and have been pleased. The whole process was easy with Dave coming out here and Mark installing. Pricing seems to be good as well for the items that we got. I would use them again if I needed more window treatments.

I had a wonderful experience with Atlanta Discount Blinds. Dave was so easy to work with. He came out once to measure (some companies have to come out twice and I didn’t want to deal with that) and everything was perfect. The installation WAS SO FAST!!!! Seriously!!! 35 blinds installed perfectly in 2 hours. I am so happy and highly recommend!!!

Good value for money, friendly and professional engagement overall…
After researching the market space we have had a number of companies provide quotes to our need. We selected Atlanta Discount Blinds because the engagement was pleasant, professional and the quality of materials is good value for money.
The installation work was quick and well done, although lacked some attention to detail. After sales service for replacements and/or exchanges is seamless and friendly. I recommend this company for your next blinds project.
