How to install blinds: 3 simple steps

    Measure Meticulously

    All of the curtains and blinds we sell at online at Half Price Blinds are made to measure, so you need to make sure you get your measurements correct. It's crucial that you get this step right, otherwise you could end up paying for blinds that don't fit your windows. As I always say, measure once, measure twice, and measure again just to be sure!

    I'd recommend taking your measurements using a steel ruler or tape and recording in millimetres (mm), to ensure the result is as accurate as possible. When measuring, always look out for things like window handles or tiles and take their position into account if necessary, to ensure a perfect fit. If you'd like to learn how to measure for a specific product, check out my handy product measuring guide.
