Complicated Bay Windows!!

Measuring & Installing Curtains or Blinds for Even the Most Complicated Bay Windows

I have just been to a house with 4 bay windows that need verticals installing in each – a measuring nightmare, as where the PVC joins the old architrave it is all at different levels.

Here is a picture!

You’d think that measuring was fairly easy as you measure right next to the window, taking into consideration the handles of the windows. However, then you need to think of fixings on the ceiling and on the window frame if it is face fix. All manufactures seem to have different brackets with varying projection, so best to get hold of who is supplying before you order.

Here is a curved vertical blind I measured for in an Art Deco building in London. It was a big curve, so making a paper template of the cill was the best way forward.
