    I a man planning on using blinds2go for some front Venetian blinds which will be inside the window reveal

    Having measured the landing window on a trial the blind was a tiny bit wide but does fit, even if it is rubbing the wallpaper on both sides

    My living room window is 100" x61" (I can measure in metric) with about a 6" depth

    The only way that I think I could accurately measure would be to make a stick 100" long and using a spirit level try measuring at various points to ensure the width is consistent front to back and at various heights. The height isn't so much of an issue accuracy wise

    Is this the best way?

    If your concern is that the sides of the reveal are not perfectly vertical, I suggest getting a true vertical to measure against.
    If you have a laser level, use that. Otherwise tap a couple of small nails into the frame to hang a plumb line about 50mm from each edge, and measure from the line to the reveal.

    Errr, measure the top width, and measure the bottom width. The company will allow 10mm or so.

    No sticks, no levels.
