How to Install Timber Blinds

By Jenevive Williams Subscribe to RSS | February 8th 2012 | Views:

Dressing up your windows using timber blinds can give your room a warm and homey atmosphere. It has an elegant finish that easily complements different room styles. For example, if you have mostly metal furnishing, timber blinds can add a warm touch to the room. If you have wooden furniture, timber blinds will naturally jive with them to create a cohesive look. The blinds also come in varying colors and slate widths, so you will have more options when creating your design.

Apart from their decorative use, timber blinds work great in maintaining the room temperature. They keep out the heat during summer months, while trapping the heat in during winter. Though timber blinds are pricier than other blinds available online, they provide more value for your money because they are sturdier and last longer than aluminium or plastic blinds. They are also easier to clean. Timber blinds in darker shades actually hide dirt well, so you do not have to clean them often.

Ordering timber blinds online is easy. You just have to measure your windows and fill in the order form. It is also cheaper, since you do not have to pay for the installation work. If you do not consider yourself handy or good with power tools, do not worry because installing timber blinds is a piece of cake. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps provided by your dealer. Here are some pointers to help you install your timber blinds:

- Once the timber blinds you ordered online arrive, check the package if everything is in order and complete. Make sure the package includes the wood screws and installation brackets.

- Plasterboard wall plugs might be required if you cannot screw the brackets into timber studs directly.

- Use a pencil to mark the screw positions for each bracket. Make sure they are in line and level with each other. Using a measuring tape can help you achieve this.

- Drill a small hole in the middle of each mark, and then put the wood screws to fix the brackets into place.

- Some blinds come with a support bracket. You can put it at the cord end of the blind, in line with the end mounting bracket.

- Once all the brackets are fitted, insert the headrail and hold it into position by locking the hinged flops down.

- Place the valance by hooking the clip onto the headrail.

- To secure the bottom of the blinds, secure the hold down brackets with the screws provided. Then snap the ends of the bracket pin into the hole at the bottom of the rail end.

Make sure the timber blinds you bought online are safe for kids. You can use a cord safety cleat to tie the extra cords together and keep them away from children's reach. Secure the loose cords to prevent kids from getting entangled or strangled. Keep away from cribs, playpens or other furniture that children can climb onto to reach the cords in order to avoid accidents.

Ordering timber blinds online is a practical solution for your home improvement, especially since there are plenty of online blinds store based in Melbourne. The installation process is also a cinch and you can definitely do it without breaking sweat.
