Installing Your Blinds

Jul 5, 2008
Now that you have considered getting blinds for your home, do not be daunted by the purchase or installation process. Everything will be just fine as long as you take the right measurements and are handy with a hammer and screwdriver.

It is not overly difficult to install blinds no matter if you are male or female or young or old. The instructions are pretty basic and you will be amazed at how easy it really is.

It is essential that you have accurate measurements for the blinds that will be installed in your home. A proper fit both in height and width is very important for the operation of the blind and how it looks in your room. You don't want to have window coverings that are too short or too long either. Now that you have all the correct measurements, it is time to go shopping for the blinds.

When the blinds are home then the installation process begins.

You will need a pencil so that you can mark the placement of the brackets for the blinds. By holding your blinds exactly where you want them to hang make a pencil mark on both sides to identify the position of each bracket. Now that step will help you to make sure that the brackets will be installed properly and the blinds will hang correctly. It is at this time that you should go get your hammer and screwdriver.

Now attach the brackets to the wall where you have made your pencil marks. The brackets are normally installed using 4 small screws. Sometimes it is not easy to get the screws into the wall so just tap them gently with the hammer to get them started and then continue using the screwdriver. Ensure that the brackets are lined up with the marks on the wall so that they are far enough apart to hold the blinds. This may seem obvious, but in order for the blind to slide into the bracket the open side of the bracket must be facing front at the time of installation.

At this time you will be installing the blinds into the brackets. They should slide easily into the open ends of the brackets and they should also feel snug and secure. There is a small piece used to slide over the open side of the brackets that will lock the blinds in place and give your blinds a finished look.

Stand back and admire your handiwork. What an accomplishment to have installed your lovely new blinds all by yourself.
