The following is a list of links to expert guides on how to measure for blinds for your bay windows.
Firstly before you measure up your windows for perfect blinds you must first make sure you have about 6mm space around your window frame for the perfect fit framing to fit around the window. So keep you eye out for anything that may prevent the framing from going around the window such as door locks or handles, as long as you have 6mm gap all the way around it will be fine.
Then check the seals of your window frame dont protrude over the glass by more than 6mm. Then take a measurement of the depth of the beading seal to see what size brackets you would need which would be 20mm, 24mm and 30mm bracket sizes to choose from.
Lastly measure your windows this is the glass size you need, measure from one side of the glass to the other and again for the drop, remember only measure the size of the glass thats all you need to do.
