Follow these steps for fitting vertical blinds:
1. Position the brackets using a spirit level for a precise fit
2. Mark the place the screws will go
3. Use a masonry drill to screw the brackets in place
4. Clip the head rail in
5. Finally, hook the fabric slats into the travellers
Before you get started, check you have the right tools for the job. Your blinds should have come with the screws that you need to fit the blinds to the wall. You will also need a spirit level, masonry drill, tape measure and screwdriver.
Vertical blinds are a great option to dress windows – and they’re extremely versatile, too. You can get the perfect fit for your window and choose between a top fixing and a face fixing fit. A top fixing will go on the inside of your lintel, and hang from the top of the recess. A face-fixing option will sit on the wall above your window, outside of the recess. Make sure you decide on your fit before you order your blinds, as the measurements will vary depending on which fit you go for.
