Vertical blinds make the perfect solution for large windows and sliding doors. They provide a stylish and functional way to control the amount of light entering a space and add a layer of privacy. Available in an endless variety of styles and patterns, you have the freedom to choose a blind that best suits the existing decor of your home. The process of installing vertical blinds is quite simple and can be done with ease.

If you are planning to install a vertical blind and looking for tips to accomplish the task in the best possible way, the following guide will be helpful.

1. To begin with, accurate measurement is the key to installing blinds perfectly. Start by measuring the width of the frame and glass that you wish to cover. On either side, an overhang of about 50mm must be maintained. This will prevent light from leaking from the sides and will give you enough space to draw the blinds. You can either go for made-to-measure vertical blinds or purchase standard sizes that best fit your window.

2. The next process involves mounting the brackets on the architrave. Ensure that the brackets are in level with each other. This is much easier if the architrave is level. If not, draw a straight line and accordingly mount the brackets. Pre-drill the holes and mount the brackets.

3. For each of the bracket, tighten the cleat. The track then needs to be clipped to the cleats. If the cleats are not aligned properly, make use of the track to get them in line and tighten them.

4. Adjust the size of the vertical blades so that they lie 10mm above the ground. After measuring the required length, fold the top of the blade accordingly and make use of the rod and hanger to lock the fold. Trim the excess material, hang the blade and wand on the track. You are done!
