A window roller blind can be fitted in several ways, depending on the type of window you have - either directly onto a wooden frame or sash window or on the top or side of the window recess for metal or plastic frames. Fitting the roller blind inside the window recess requires exact measurements, but you can be more flexible with the blind size if you decide to fit the roller outside the window recess.
Ensure that the recess your blind is going into is not obstructed in any way (by window handles for example) so the blind can hang freely when fully extended.
You will also need to decide on which side of the window you would like your sidewinder mechanism fitted, making sure that it's easily accessible.

Using a metal tape measure, carefully measure the total width from A to B and the drop from C to D.
These are the dimensions you use when you place your order.
Remember to use a steel tape measure for accuracy and to measure in centimetres and round each measurement to the nearest 0.1cm. Check your measurement in several places to allow for any slight variation or irregularity in your window recess.
