New window treatments are a big investment, so it can be tempting to skip the additional expense of professional blind installation. But, depending on the type of blinds and your level of DIY comfort and experience, hiring a professional blind installer could actually save a good deal of time and money.
There are a few things to consider when determining whether to have your new blinds professionally installed.
Do you have any windows with unusual shapes or measurements? Are you unsure of your ability to get accurate measurements? Are you installing a large number of window treatments on windows of different sizes? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a professional blind installer may be a good choice for you.
Product Type and Window Shape
It’s much easier to install horizontal blinds or shades in standard-sized square or rectangular windows. If your covering or window is outside the norm, consider hiring a professional installer who is trained and experienced in unique installations.
Window blinds installations don’t generally require many tools. A ladder, tape measure, screwdriver and drill may be all you need. But if you’re new to DIY and don’t have any tools, or your windows or coverings require something special, an installer will have everything your windows need.
Yes, a professional installation costs money. But pros can usually install much more quickly, making the entire project much faster. And consider this: how much is your time worth? What could you get done while an installer is at work on your windows?
