Roman blinds can add a touch of elegance to your space. Practical and stylish, they make the perfect shading solution for your home. They add a layer of privacy and enable you to control the amount of light and heat entering your space.

Eager to dress up your windows with Roman blinds but unsure about the correct installation method?

The following guide can make the task simple for you.

1. First and foremost, you need ensure accuracy in measurement to pick the perfect blind. Measure the window cavity so that you are able to determine the exact area that the blind has to cover. The blinds can be altered to get the right size. The blind needs to have a width that is about 60mm less than that of the window cavity. This will help you get 30mm space on either sides. Moreover, it needs to be 15mm to 30mm longer in height than that of the cavity.

2. Mark the points where the brackets for the blinds will be mounted. Pre-drill the screw holes in these points. Ensure that there is enough space for the blind to gather after it is pulled up. After you are sure, screw the brackets in place. Since Roman blinds are heavy, you can mount extra brackets for added support.

3. Beginning from the central bracket, clip the blinds. After the blind is secure in its place, install a cleat to keep the blind cord off the floor. The cords pose a threat and it is wise to tie them up. Add a cleat in the inner frame of the window and tie the blind cord.
