Window blinds provide privacy and help control the amount of light entering the room. There are several types of window blinds available today; you have a choice between roller blinds, cellular blinds, Roman Blinds and Venetian Blinds in different materials like vinyl, PVC, timber, aluminium , Smart-wood, etc.
Apollo Blinds supplies custom-made, quality blinds, awnings and shutters in Australia. They can custom design your window blinds and also take care of installation. But if you are the do-it-yourself kind of person who would like to install the blinds yourself, here are step by step instructions.
But before you begin, gather the following items:
Your choice of blinds with all the accessories
Screws (these will usually be included in your window blind set), and
A step ladder.
Decide on how you want the blinds mounted, whether on the inside of the window frame or on the outside. This of course, depends on your personal preference.
Measure the length and breadth of the window frame to decide on the size of the blind required. You should measure the length of the head rail and also determine how long the blind should be.
Visit the store and choose your window blinds. You can ask them to cut the blinds according to size. Apollo Blinds has a wide range of window blinds available in different colours and patterns made from various types of material.
Before you start installing the window blinds, read the instructions carefully to understand the process.
With a pencil, mark the spots on both sides of the window where the head rail brackets must be fitted. These brackets will hold the head rail of your window blind.
Depending on the length of the head rail, it will require support brackets to hold it up. Mark the spots along the head rail where the support brackets must be anchored.
Now you must drill holes at the locations you had marked earlier to fix the head rail and support brackets. Position the brackets and drill holes for the screws.
Fix the brackets using the screws. Your head rail brackets must be perfectly aligned so that the blinds open and close smoothly. For this reason, you must check the alignment while marking the locations with the help of a level.
Once the anchoring head rail brackets are installed, you can go ahead and attach the blind to the head rail. You might want to check the instructions for attaching the blinds.
As the final step in installing window blinds, attach the tilt wand to the window blind. The tilt wand is the device that will help you raise and lower your blinds.
