How to Fit Your New Window Blinds

Congratulations: you’re now the proud owner of a set of beautiful new window blinds. Now comes the tricky part: installing them. Before you can install your new blinds, you need to fit them to your window. Luckily, it’s a lot easier than you think to fit your new window blinds.

Step 1: Measure Your Window Coverings

Most window covering professionals and authorized dealers will include measurement services when you buy new window blinds. However, if you didn’t receive this service you can measure your blinds yourself at home:

  • Measure each window thoroughly. This includes horizontal measurements at the top, center and bottom, and vertical measurements along both sides and at the center. Then take the additional and important step of measuring diagonally too. These measurements combined will reveal whether or not your window is square.
  • If a window isn’t square, consider an outside mount, installing the window covering above your opening.
  • If your window treatment telescopes to one side as it is raised, the window may not be level. Many shades have an adjustable bottom rail weight. It can be moved to compensate for the window frame and prevent telescoping.

Step 2: Cut-Down Your Blinds
