Once you’ve measured, chosen and ordered your blind, the next step is to fit the blind. We want to help you to get your blind looking the best it can, therefore, we’ve created a range of guides to help you fit your chosen style of blind.

If you’re used to DIY projects then great. If not, don’t worry, we’ve laid out fitting guides for each type of blind that will guide you through the process step-by-step.

Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll need to do to fit your blinds:

1. Decide on top fix or face fix fit for your blinds

A top fix will let your blind hang hang within the recess for a snug fit and clean lines. This is the most contemporary fit and also depends on which blinds you choose. For example, a venetian blind would look best within the recess using a top fix.

For a face fix, you’re looking to block any light into the room as the blind will sit outside of the recess and can be used on blinds such as Roller - however, the choice is yours.

2. Equip yourself with the right tools

It’s important to use the right tools to hang your blind. Therefore, we’d recommend:

  • Appropriate plugs & screws (not provided)
  • Drill & Drill bit
  • Metal Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Screwdriver

3. Screw your bracket into the wall

Upon opening your blinds, you will be provided with appropriate brackets in which to hang your blinds from. Simply measure and mark where you’d like the brackets to fix to and drill a hole accordingly.

4. Install blinds

Once your brackets are in place, simply attach the blinds to the brackets - it may require a little force to get them in situ.

5. Attach Safety Device

Finally, once your blinds are in place, you can attach your safety device to the wall to tidy away any excess cord to keep it away from small children and pets.
