(a) JOHN LEWIS VELVET Roman Blind Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 40

Outside recess mount Decide on the position of the blind so that it overlaps on both sides equally. At least 5cm.

(b)JOHN LEWIS VELVET Roman Blind Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 41

2. Measuring

Inside window recess
Measure both the width and the length of the space to get the right dimensions. Remember to take measurements at different points and use the smallest to ensure accuracy. If you prefer to hang your blind in front of the recess. position it as far above as you choose, then measure the inside of the recess crosswise and add a minimum of 0.5cm to each side.

Outside window recess
If you’re fitting your blind outside a recess, it’s a matter of taste how high or low you fit it — though we recommend leaving around 10cm above the window frame or recess.

SAFETY DEVICES
This product has been supplied with break away safety clips attached to each cord on the reverse of this blind. These components have been pre-installed and have been supplied to make this blind safe in line with the new child safety regulations outlined in BS EN13120.
The break away safety clips that are attached to each panel and cord on the reverse of the blind will break away from the front of the clip if any reasonable weight is placed on the cord on the back of the blind. Our clips will break away leaving one side of the clip on the tape and the other on the cord. They are easily re-attached if required.

Creasing
Due to the nature of Velvet products the fabric might need time to condition in the atmosphere after unpacking; this will allow the pile to relax and lift and help any small wrinkles to fall out. A light steam can also help to ease out wrinkles.
Use a steam iron lightly on the reverse of the blind, firstly un-clip and move strings away from the area to be ironed. Move the iron in the direction of the pile, which on this blind is an upwards movement. After steaming please ensure all clips and strings and re-positioned and the blind is hung immediately. You can regularly dust the blinds with a feather duster or, if needed, use a vacuum cleaner on low power.
