There will always be a small gap between the blinds when it comes to corner windows, however there are ways to minimise the light and vision.

  • Achieving Privacy

    Have A to B (the blind running all the way through) covering the front window to achieve the most privacy, to stop vision down the gap between the butting blind.

    Position the gap to minimise the light coming in or in a way to make the gap less obvious when entering the room.

Measuring Your Windows

  • Measuring A to B

    Measure the first blind A to B into the corner without making any deductions.

  • Measuring C to D

    When measuring C to D it is important to subtract the projection depth from the blind to obtain the proper ordering width. You will be ordering the finished blind size.

    The distance/projection depth to be subtracted will depend on the type of product. See product projection depth below.
