When measuring a bay window please measure the full distance of A,B,C in photo above, then deduct 35mm from B & C only for the angle, the sizes you should now have are classed as inside recess sizes.

When measuring a rectangular bay window or conservatory always measure the front face first. This blind will be a recess fit.  Then measure the width of one side and take off 100mm to allow for the front blind eg 1000mm total width minus 100mm for front blind = 900mm. The measurement will be a 900mm recess fit blind. Repeat this for other side.
