How Wide Can Window Blinds Be?
If you’re wondering what the standard size of window blinds is, the standard window length is 36 to 72 inches, and the standard width is 24 to 60 inches. Window sizes and shapes, on the other hand, can vary greatly, particularly in older homes or homes with custom windows.
It’s a good idea to measure the width and height of your window so you’ll know how much area you’ll be covering with the hidden blind. In addition, you’ll need to take into consideration the depth of the blind; that is, how long the cord will be.

The Parts of Window Blinds:
- Panels: The panels are the individual pieces of a vertical blind that separate them into sections. It’s important for you to choose your panels carefully so you can find one that showcases your style and matches well with your room.
- Lining: The lining is the material you choose to give a window shade a finished look, from behind. Lining fabrics can include linen, cotton, velvet, and more.
- Header: The header is the part of your vertical blind that will be attached to your window frame and is what the slats of your blind slide up and down on.
- Bar or Cord: The bar or cord are the strings used to raise and lower your vertical blinds.
