Why Measuring Your Zebra Blinds is Important

Zebra blinds are a great way to add style and privacy to your home. These unique window coverings consist of two layers of fabric that move independently of each other, allowing for greater control over light and privacy. However, to ensure that your zebra blinds fit perfectly, it's important to measure them accurately. Inaccurate measurements can lead to blinds that don't fit properly, and may not provide the necessary privacy or light control that you need.

Fortunately, measuring zebra blinds is a relatively simple process that can be done by anyone with a measuring tape and some basic knowledge. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps you need to take to measure your zebra blinds like a pro!


WIDTH: Measure from left to right in 3 positions (top, middle, bottom). Take the smallest measurement.

HEIGHT: Measure from top to bottom in 3 positions (left, center, right). Take the smallest measurement.

Do not make any deductions when you are measuring. The manufacturer will be sure to make them for a perfect fit.

Important notice
For roller shades, sheer shades, zebra blinds will be the same width as the measurement given and the fabric will be shortened by manufacturer about 1/16 an inch on each side.


WIDTH: Give the measurements of the space you want to cover from left to right.

HEIGHT: Give the measurements of the space you want to cover from top to bottom.

The width and height measurement should always include the cassette, valence, headrail or roller. 

Important notice
The cassette, valence, headrail or roller will be the same width as the measurement given and the fabric will be shortened about 5/8th of an inch on each side, which is why, for example, if the space to be covered is 60" in width, it is recommended to order 64" (or 2" extra on each side) to ensure that the entire window frame is covered, preventing any light from penetrating through any gaps.
