Window Blinds and Shade Installation

Quick Window Blind Installation Guide

Need a quick glance at how to install window blinds? We have a basic overview of how to get the job done. There will be variations depending on your specific product, but nearly all categories of window blinds and shades follow the same basic steps.

  1. Install mounting bracket
    Whether your window treatments are inside or outside mount, mounting brackets go up first. This will require a few screws, a level and measuring tape (to make sure your brackets are in line) and maybe pre-drilling depending on your window casing.

These are the basic steps to installing window treatments. Certain categories of products will have differences such as shutters, and some will have additional parts. Please find your product to see the process for your window treatment.
