How to measure? For angled bay windows
You will need:
Cardboard & scissors
A tape measure
A pencil & paper
Create cardboard cut-outs to use as measuring guides. The cut - out will be 30cm long by the depth of blind you have chosen plus any obstructions. For example when allowing 2cm for handles and choosing a standard Roman with 2.5cm headrail the measurement you’d create a cut - out that is 4.5cm by 30cm (2+2.5=4.5cm).
Place the cut outs in the left angle (between windows ‘A’ and ‘B’), bring them together until the front corners of the cardboard meet and mark with a pencil points ‘D’ and ‘E’.
Place the cut outs in the right angle (between windows ‘A’ and ‘C’), bring them together until the front corners of the cardboard meet and mark with a pencil points ‘F’ and ‘G’.
Measure between points ‘D’ and ‘F’ and write down as an exact measurement.
Measure from point ‘E’ to across window ‘B’ and write down as an recess measurement.
Measure from point ‘G’ to across window ‘C’ and write down as an recess measurement. (Note: if you have a ‘closed’ bay window i.e. you have a wall at the end of windows ‘B’ and ‘C’ opposite window ‘A’ you will need to take down the measurements for windows ‘B’ and ‘C’ as recess measurements).
