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**

https://www.atlantadiscountblinds.com/contact-us/The selections of colors were far better than other companies that I spoke to and the service was great. During this trying time Mark came out and installed the shades in the house in about 15 minutes. Thank you so much David

I almost always get three estimates when considering a large project (expense) but my second estimate, with Dave, was my second and my last. Dave was easy to talk to on the phone and we scheduled a visit that worked for us. He brought tons of samples and explained the difference between them, offering suggestions without being pushy. He measured all of our windows, 23 in all plus a door, while we poured over the many samples. We decided on which shades we liked and he gave us an estimate right on the spot. With the previous estimate, I waited two days to get it via email and was then very disappointed. We agreed on a price with Dave and two weeks later, Mark, the installation professional, arrived on time and had the shades up, all 23 windows and 1 door, in under two hours. He did an excellent job, moved the furniture that needed to be moved, put it all back exactly as it was and he cleaned up everything. We could not be happier with the entire process, start to finish. The price was extremely reasonable and the product was perfect for our needs. Thank you Dave and Mark. We have no windows left to do, but if we did, we would most certainly have Atlanta Discount Blinds again!! Thank you!

Dave and Mark did a great job from start to finish. Dave came by the house with so many options for my new townhouse windows. I chose the dual shades in white for a softer, modern and minimal look. Mark installed the shades (and blinds for my terrace) very quickly and impeccably. He gave me a tutorial on how to use the powerwand (worth every penny)! I love my new custom shades and blinds. Highly recommend Dave and Mark. Awesome team, professional and great value. Thank you!

We are very pleased with the work done to install our honeycomb blinds! Before contacting Atlanta Discount Blinds we got estimates from a couple of other places and Atlanta Discount Blinds beat them out by a lot. We will definitely contact them for any future work for window treatments. Thank you!

Thanks Dave and Atlanta Discount Blinds. We love our new shades!  They are beautiful, functional, and let just enough light in.  Thank you for your awesome customer service.

Buying Blinds from Atlanta Discount Blinds was a great choice. Dave and Mark were always friendly and helpful. Very professional and knowledgeable about your blind needs. Fast and efficient from measuring to install. Highly recommend this team. 

Dave came out to my fathers Chiropractic office within the timeframe of us opening the new office. Not only does Dave and Cindy have the pricing that nobody can beat but they went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we got nothing but the best service in the industry. Thank you Dave! 

I have used this company twice and have been satisfied with their work. Dave is helpful and knowledgeable and the installation process is fast and efficient.

From the quote to the install everything was handled with professionalism. The blinds are beautiful and for a beautiful price 🙂 Thanks Dave and team!

Dave came to our home on time and was a wonderful help to us as we tried to get some window treatments for our new custom home in Sandy Springs. I was so happy to have such a personable, friendly experience. He did a great job measuring the windows and offering us lots of elegant options for the windows. I will definitely use him again.
