Practical DIY Tips in Blinds Installation

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

If you're one of those who are constantly searching online for the best deals in home furnishing, chances are you've come across several websites promoting their top-quality and affordable DIY Blinds.

Imagine being bombarded with these ads: The Best Window Blinds Online – Top Quality From Brisbane; Get the Finest Roller Blinds Online Especially Made From Perth; or Get Big Discounts if You Purchase Our Window Blinds Online – The Best in Adelaide.

Which would you choose?

The task of searching for high-quality DIY Blinds could be as stressful as reading those ads. But the job is not yet done until you have installed those sophisticated window shades perfectly. Below are some practical tips for DIY Blinds installation:

Measurement. Windows might look all the same, but there are differences in size and dimension. Your office window might be a little modest in comparison to your home's. So before you hit your computer and search for the finest roller blinds online, it is necessary to keep notes of the basics.

If you are the measurement-savvy type, you might want to check all of your windows' measurements by using a simple steel tape measure. It may seem like a daunting task, but the job requires a basic knowledge of the metric system.

Always record the width by placing the tape measure from the left side of your window pane all the way to the right. Make sure to take the precise measurements for each window, so that the blinds will fit perfectly.

However, if you want to play it safe, you can always seek professional assistance from your blinds supplier. Although some companies would ask for additional service fee, it is always better to get the measurements right the first time.

Type of Mounting. While some people consider themselves experts in the DIY department, the type of mounting should be taken into consideration before selecting the blinds and screens to be used. On most occasions, your purchase would be delivered in a complete package, including the installation brackets, screws, and fasteners. However, keep in mind that not all window blinds sets contain all the necessary hardware, so make sure that you double-check the measurements and read the instruction manual before you proceed with the installation.

Window Blinds Treatment. Window blinds are easy to clean. Depending on the materials (e.g. fabric or wood) from which it is made, you can always use a feather duster to remove dust and dirt.

Even with these DIY blinds tips in mind, remember that it is always best to ask for a professional’s assistance when you’re not sure about your DIY work. The last thing that you want is to spend more for any problems that may be caused by yourself.
