How to install a blind

We have our helpful video that will go through the process of Installing a blind, should you want a step by step guide, go further down the page to find our printable instructions.

See below for all our fitting guides where you can download and print a 'step by step guide' should you need them. Please call us on 0800 483 638 ( Mon - Fri, 8am - 5pm ) if you have any problems.

Roller blinds

  • Gather your tools (a small square drill bit and a drill) and unpack your blind. Inside you'll find all the fixtures and fittings (brackets and screws) that you'll need to install your new blinds
  • Screw the brackets into the side or the top jamb (the side/top of the window frame whatever fits better). Make sure your bracket is situated at the front of the jamb as this is where the face of the blind will sit. If the blind is an outside fit the brackets will be screwed through the back of the bracket into architrave or the face of the jamb.
  • Fit the end that the controls are located first by sliding the blind into the bracket. Push the telescopic end in (it’s spring loaded) and fit it into the bracket. It really is that easy!
  • If you want to take the blind out, pull the blind right up. Hold on to the control end and push it up. You’ll see the blind come out of the bracket. Then push against the other end and pull the control end out. You can then pull the blind down.

Aluminium blinds

  • Gather your tools (a small square drill bit and a drill) and unpack your blind. Inside you’ll find all the fixtures and fittings (brackets and screws) that you’ll need to install your new blinds.
  • Screw the brackets into the top jamb (or top window frame) 100mm from each of the right and left jambs. Make sure your bracket is situated at the front of the jamb as this is where the face of the blind will sit.
  • If your blind is over 1300mm wide you will need another bracket to support the blind in the middle. Please do NOT screw the bracket in directly above the red tape drum (situated in the headrail of the blind)
  • Drill your screws through the brackets, into place.
  • Fit your blind into the brackets by placing the headrail into the brackets and clip the back up into it. It really is that easy!
  • If you want to take the blind out push it back towards the window and drop the back down, then lift it off the front of the bracket and its out.

Wooden blinds

  • Gather your tools (a small square drill bit and a drill) and unpack your blind. Inside you’ll find all the fixtures and fittings (brackets and screws) that you’ll need to install your new blinds.
  • Screw the brackets into the side jamb (the side of the window frame). Make sure your bracket is situated at the front of the jamb as this is where the face of the blind will sit. If your blind is an outside fit the brackets will be screwed through the back of the bracket into architrave or the face of the jamb.
  • If your blind is over 1800mm wide you will need another bracket to support the blind in the middle. This will need to be screwed into the top jamb. Please do NOT screw the bracket in directly above any of the tapes (situated in the headrail of the blind)
  • Drill your screws through the brackets, into place.
  • Fit your blind into the brackets by placing the headrail into one of the brackets. Clip open the other bracket at the front and slide/push the other end of the blind into it. Once this has been done clip closed the front of the bracket, securing the blind in place. It really is that easy!
  • If you want to take the blind out open the front clasps on both brackets and slide/pull the blind out.
