We do blinds with our own hands

You have acquired multi-blinds and are in high spirits, anticipating how they will change your room and how beautiful they will look on the window. But here's a bad luck - they still need to somehow fit into this very window.

You can, of course, invite a master who, for a certain amount of money, will perform such a responsible job. And why don't you install the blinds yourself?

First you need to decide where you will hang them. No, it is clear that do-it-yourself blinds need to be installed on the window, not on the front door, but they can be fixed both to the ceiling and directly to the window opening. It all depends on the design and the size of the blinds. If your plastic blinds exactly match the size of the window, you will have to mount them directly on the opening. If their size is larger, then we will install blinds with our own hands on the ceiling or on the wall. Well, if they are smaller than the window, you will have to carry them back to the store, since there will be no sense in hanging them.

Since you read up to this point, it means that you still decided to install the blinds with your own hands. The decision is right and worthy of a thinking and skillful being. Let's get started.

We arm ourselves with a drill, knife and screwdriver (if there is no screwdriver, then an ordinary screwdriver will do). You will also need the help of a pencil and a building level.

Using a knife, carefully open the box with the blinds and see what we have to deal with. The standard package should include a cornice, latches for it, lamellas (these are the plates of which, in fact, the blinds are made, depending on your choice, they can be wooden, plastic, and woven), chains, brackets, latches , control cord, dowels, screws and installation and installation instructions.

DIY blinds
If something is missing, then do not immediately blame the bad employees of the store. It is possible that this is not required to install exactly your blinds.

Then we take a pencil and a level in our hands, and we outline the places for fixing the cornice. Try to do this as carefully as possible, otherwise the type of obliquely attached blinds will not add aesthetics to your interior, and the lamellar rotation mechanism will constantly jam.

Holes are drilled at selected locations, and cornice latches are mounted on the brackets. You will need brackets if you decide to fix the blinds to the wall, and not to the ceiling. The cornice is inserted into the latches, and the most creative part of the work begins - the installation of slats. They must be carefully removed from the box one at a time and immediately attached to the sliders. It is this sequence of actions that is due to the fact that if you mix up the order of the lamellas, then you will have to spend quite a lot of time collecting the drawing originally conceived by the manufacturer. However, if you prudently chose plastic blinds without patterns or are a fan of avant-garde art trends, then this should not confuse you.

Blinds are plastic
After all the slats are in place, a guide chain is attached to them, and the process of installing the blinds with your own hands can be considered completed with a clear conscience.

We carefully collect the garbage, wash our hands and enjoy the view of the blinds independently installed in the room.
