Recess or outside recess fitting?
When a window is not flush to the wall, there is a recess which is created. This internal space in a room is rarely used during the day, unless the sill of the window is put to some use. Therefore, hanging a blind outside of the recess usually causes no problem in terms of lost space, but fitting inside will make the blind nearer to the window.
When deciding on mounting inside or outside recess, ensure that there are no obtruding objects (window catches, electrical sockets, tiles etc.) to hinder the operation of the blind.
What we do
INSIDE RECESS FIT
For an inside recess fit we deduct 35mm from the width measurement you provide us to ensure that the blind with the controls and brackets will fit the into the recess of your window.
Remember the actual fabric of the blind will be about 35mm narrower than the measurements you give us.
For example, if your inside recess is 100cm wide, we will make the blind material to 96.5cm wide and then once the end fittings are applied the overall width will then be 100cm wide.
You may not have a recessed window or for blackout purposes you may want to cover the entire window space or even for display purposes the blind might not even be fitted onto a window. In these cases this is the option to select.
The blind material will be made exactly to the sizes you give to us.
For example, if your measurement is 100cm wide, we will make the blind material to 100cm wide and then once the end fittings are applied the overall width will then be 103.5cm wide.
