Mini-blinds are an easy way of keeping privacy without hanging curtains or drapes, while still adding aesthetics to the window’s appearance. Blinds do not take long to hang in many instances, and are easy to clean and care for.
You will need:
Step 1: Measure your window’s height and width. Since blinds come in many sizes and lengths, it is best to buy the blinds that are closest to your window’s width and height without going over. Hold the open mini-blind with the brackets attached, up to the top of the window. Check to make sure that it fits all the way around the window facing. If there are any gaps on the sides, you can use a measuring tape to measure the distance from the blind to the window. Split the measurement equally between both sides of the window when hanging the blinds.
Step 2: Remove the brackets from the blind. Place the level on the window and hold the bracket against the level where you want to place the bracket. Mark this with a pencil in the holes inside of the bracket that will attach it to the window. Do this for both sides of the windows.
Step 3: Drill the bracket holes that were marked in the last step by using a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the included screws you will be using. Hold the bracket in place and then use the screwdriver to place the screws into the walls, mounting the brackets. Do this for both sides of the window.
Step 4: Place the blinds into the brackets and then place the level on top of the blinds. This will allow you to see if the blinds are level across the window. If the bubble on the level sits left of center, the left set of brackets must be unscrewed and moved up until level. If the bubble on the level sits right of center, the right side bracket must be removed and moved up to center. To find center at this point, hold the level on top of the blinds and remove whichever side is off level. Move the bracket up until the level shows center and mark the bottom of the bracket with a pencil.
Step 5: Remove the blind from the bracket and then screw the unlevel bracket into correct placement. Replace the blinds and check for level again. This time your blind should hang correctly in the window.
