How to measure a deep beamed lean-to conservatory
Preparation is key, make sure you have a good quality tape measure, pen and paper ready.
We advise all measurements should be taken in mm (millimetres) for a more accurate measure.
(1) Measure between each beam as shown in purple then deduct 10mm from each measurement.
These are your widths shown in purple, we deduct the 10mm to allow for beams which run un-true and allow a better fit of your blind.
(2) Finally measure the length (drop) as shown in red, this should be from where the blind is going to be mounted to the top of your conservatory.

Enhance your Home Insulation with Honeycomb Blinds
Did you realize that, as per OFGEM, the average household allocates approximately £1,254 annually to heating and power expenses, potentially ranking among the highest overheads for households in the UK? Our windows directly confront the elements, and Cellular blinds emerge as a solution that can significantly impact your home.
As the temperature decreases, it becomes imperative to contemplate strategies for insulating your home in preparation for the upcoming winter. Given reports suggesting that this year may be one of the coldest on record, incorporating Honeycomb blinds becomes crucial as the primary line of defense for your windows.
Now, let's delve into the mechanics of how Cellular blinds operate.
It’s hexagonal structures connect to create effective little air pockets that when the blind is extended, slows down thermal transfer from your windows.
The air cavity created by the cell creates a clever and effective additional insulation factor to keep the heat in and the cold out.
If you'd like to let some winter sunlight in to heat your home naturally, simply pull up your blinds as you wish and close again that evening to trap all that natural heat inside.
What sets Honeycomb blinds apart is that they offer more than just a seasonal solution for winter, they deliver year-round temperature management. In winter, the cozy indoor air tends to escape through windows, leaving your home colder and resulting in soaring heating bills. Similarly, during summer, outdoor heat effortlessly penetrates your windows, warming the interior—particularly bothersome if you have an air conditioning system or multiple fans running throughout the day. Regardless of the season, Honeycomb blinds diligently maintain a balanced temperature, ensuring cost savings and alleviating stress throughout the entire year.
Our Honeycomb collection boasts a dynamic and colorful range that reflects the essence of contemporary tastes and trends. What's more, the blackout option provides heightened privacy for your home. As an innovative home solution, Honeycomb blinds can also be motorized, delivering complete shading flexibility and enabling full control with just the touch of a button. This not only adds a modern touch but also contributes to energy-conscious living.
