We always offer our Clients the opportunity to send us their window dimensions to enable us to provide a guide price for consideration. We’d stress that there is no pressure to do this but many Clients find it a useful exercise if they are not aware of the ballpark cost of shutters or if they wish to compare our price to other quotes obtained. One of the most frequent questions then asked is… how do I measure??
How to measure a standard window
Measure the width from the outside of the window frame on the left to the outside of the window frame on the right, or from left side reveal to right side reveal.
Measure the height from the sill to the ceiling, top of reveal or the top of the window frame…..wherever you feel you would like the shutters to finish.
If you are looking for Café/half height shutters, then please give the height of the transom or horizontal divide in your window, rather than the full height of the window, and indicate this is what you are looking for.
How to measure a shaped window
Measure the widest part of the window from outside of the window frame on the left to outside of the window frame on the right, or from left side reveal to right side reveal. For a circle that is the only dimension required.
For the height, we require the tallest overall dimension from the sill to the ceiling, reveal top or outside of top frame… wherever you feel you would like the shutters to finish. This applies to all angled, apex or arch top windows.
Any images, additional dimensions and information that you can provide will assist us in providing an accurate price indication.
How to measure a bay window
This applies to all bay windows –
Square or Box Bay
Standard 3 Part Angled Bay
Larger Multi Angled Bay
Start from the left hand side, outer edge, of the window frame. Measure from this point to the centre of the angle (you can see this is usually marked on the window sill with a cut line)
Measure from the centre point of the angle to the next angle or cut line on the sill. Repeat this process for all parts of the bay until you reach the outer edge of the right hand frame.
The combined length of your sections is the overall width of the window. We are happy for you to send the individual section lengths or as a whole but in the latter case, please indicate the number of sections.
We then require a height measurement. Please measure from the sill to the ceiling, reveal top or to the top of the window frame wherever you feel you would like the shutters to finish.
NB: Only finish the shutters at the top of the frame if there is a significant space above to the ceiling.
A photo and any other information on your requirements will assist us to provide an accurate price.
If you are able to provide the angle of the window, then this would also be very helpful.If you are looking for café/half height shutters, then please give the height of the transom or horizontal divide in your window rather than the full height of the window and indicate this is what you are looking for.
