Blinds are chosen by many as their window treatment to control the passage of light into your homes. They are also powerful tools for securing privacy inside your house, regardless of how high the sun may be.
However, many had found out that the complexities of blind installation are of higher level. If you are this person, are you now becoming unsure of the benefits your newly bought blinds can provide to you?
Please do not be so negative. Blind installation should never be that hard. Try out the following four easy steps in having the perfect blind for you and then having it attached to your window panes in no time:
STEP 1: Before anything else, do some measurements.
Mathematics is an essential factor even in blind installation. Besides, you can never be able to properly install your blinds if it can’t fit in. Maybe, that is the reason why you are having a hard time attaching your vinyl blinds or woven blinds. If that is the case, take a break on trying to install the blinds.
Measure its dimensions first and then compare it to the dimension of your window. To have a perfect fit, your blinds should be smaller by some degree compared to the dimensions of the window. If it isn’t, the blinds are the problem. Try to call the hardware store from where you have bought the blinds and ask for a replacement.
However, take note that the owner has the right to not accept your request. This fact further highlights the need for measuring first your windows before actually buying yourself a shade.
STEP 2: Check for at most two brackets in the package.
These brackets are the actual hanger of your blinds. They will support the attachment of the shades, so better analyze their quality. Besides, you can easily replace them by calling the hardware store once more.
If you have found them, mark with the pencil the exact places in which you would want them to be. The following will help you:
- If you are planning to install the blinds inside the window case, make your markings within the window frames.
- Planning for blinds outside the case would mean making markings outside your frames. This would usually be the case if you are installing bathroom blinds.
- Above the window installments should be done with utmost care since you would want the extra flaps to have equal distribution on each side. Thus, mark the places in the best locations to obtain the equality you are wanting. This would also require doing some math.
STEP 3: Look also for the installation kit provided in your package.
This kit would include the bolts and screws needed to attach the bracket to your walls permanently. You can do such by drilling the bolts into the places you had marked and then mounting the brackets in place.
STEP 4: Finally, insert the top part of your blinds.
Before this, make sure that the slants are securely woven intact with each other. After this, you can simply mount the blinds and then lock to place by screwing the caps in the ends.
