Venetian blinds are awesome! They are incredibly versatile, come in a variety of colours and materials, provide an option for every budget, are easy to clean and maintain and best of all they are super easy to install!

It is the perfect project to handle for new homeowners and DIY enthusiasts. You don’t need a structural engineering degree and with a couple of common household tools you can install venetian blinds like a pro.

 

WHAT YOU NEED

Before getting started make sure you have the following with you:

  1. A steel measuring tape
  2. A pencil
  3. An electric drill
  4. 6mm masonry drill bit
  5. A screwdriver

Our venetian blinds include the wall plugs, screws, and brackets you need to complete your installation.

 

STEP 1: MEASURE YOUR WINDOW

The first step when you install venetian blinds is to measure and mark your holes for drilling. Make sure take your time and get your measurements right.

 

FOR INSIDE MOUNT (RECESS FIT):

  1. Attach your brackets to your blind and measure how far apart they are from the left edge.
  2. Now use those measurements and your brackets to mark the top of the window frame. Remember to make sure your brackets don’t stick out the front of the window.
  3. Use your pencil to mark where you need to drill holes.

FOR OUTSIDE MOUNT (FACEFIX):

  1. Attach your brackets to your blind and measure how far apart they are from the left edge.
  2. Now place your blind above the window frame and mark where the brackets are. Remember to make sure that the blind lowers past the bottom of the window frame when opened and check that it is centered across the window.
  3. Now remove your brackets and place them back on the wall where you made your marks and using the pencil, mark the drill holes.

 

STEP 2: DRILL YOUR HOLES

  1. Once you are happy with your measurements, go ahead and drill the holes your require. Use the appropriate safety gear like gloves and goggles to protect yourself.
  2. Now put the wall plugs in the holes and attach the brackets using the screws provided.

 

STEP 3: HANG YOUR BLIND

The last step when you install venetian blinds is to hang them. Simply pull the lever on the bracket forward, lift your blind up to the brackets and push the lever back.

 

CONCLUSION

When you install venetian blinds make sure you take your time. The process is simple but does require a bit of care. If you need help our team of DIY professionals will be happy to help.
