One of the first things people do when they begin shopping for new window treatments is to measure their windows themselves. This is a great start as those dimensions will help window covering professionals help you select a suitable blind, shutter, or shade. While we can use your measurements to get a general idea of your product cost, having your windows professionally measured before purchasing will ensure that your blinds and shades fit and function perfectly. You’ll also avoid costly re-order charges and delays that can happen when you do your own measuring. Stop by our showroom in Branford, serving all of Connecticut, to get started on finding the perfect window treatments for you!
Start With Correct Measurements
Professional measurement protects your window treatment investment. A few mistakes we often see include with DIY measurement include:
- Assuming that your windows are all the same size.
- Assuming that your new window treatment can be mounted on the inside of your window.
- Misjudging how different window treatments will hang together.
- Not allowing space for lifting mechanisms.
- Not considering motorization features, either to be installed now or later.
- Assuming that all windows are perfectly square — they’re often not.
Steps Our Window Treatment Installers Take
Our certified and professional installers have perfected the process of accurate window treatment measuring. First, they measure horizontally at the top, center and bottom. Then, they measure vertically along both sides and at the center. Finally, they measure diagonally and combine the measurements to reveal if your window is really square. Lastly, professional installers ensure you have the appropriate window treatment and mounting option selected. They use correct hardware to properly support your new window treatment and protect your window molding and frame. When you work with the professional window covering installers at Window Products, we guarantee your window treatments will operate perfectly.
