How Do I Go About Installing Venetian Blinds?

Installing Venetian Blinds- Measure The Frame

Installing Venetian Blinds is a fairly straightforward process. Simply, measure the width of your window with a metal tape measure before venturing to the shop to make your purchase. The blinds come in various widths, but they normally come in full length, so there is no need to measure the height of the window. If your windows are of a standard size, you will have no problem finding one that will be just shorter than the span of your window. For wider windows such as sliding doors, you may be better off with other shading options such as vertical blinds, or installing 2 or three venetian blinds. your Venetian Blinds will be made to order for the width of your window and then you will have to install the brackets ready to hang them.

Installing Venetian Blinds- Install the brackets

When in the process of Installing Venetian Blinds, position the blinds at the window to mark out where the brackets need to go. You will have the option of installing the blinds hanging down from inside the window frame or hanging from the outside (external or recess). If possible, it is recommended to install them hanging down from inside the frame. Ensure that the brackets will be level by either using a level or positioning them in equal distance related to the window’s architrave. If you can screw the brackets into timber, either directly into the architrave or the timber studs supporting the windows. For plaster fitting, it is recommended to insert some plaster plugs in the right locations first.

Installing Venetian Blinds- Hang the blinds

Open the brackets to insert the headrail of the blinds into the brackets. Close the brackets. Your venetian blinds are now installed, though as you may see in the next step, they will probably need some trimming.
