Need help with installing your new Roller Blinds in your home or office?

Okay, I’m here to guide you through the process.

Here is a list of the materials that you will need to get started.

You will need each of the following to begin:

  • A Drill
  • Screws that came with the blind
  • Level
  • Bracket for the blind
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pencil
  • The Roller Blind itself

First of all measure the area where the brackets will be placed. Measure the width area width of the window.


Then subtract the width of the window from the width of the roller blind, Next divide the number by half. This will give you the number of inches past the window frame to mount the bracket.

For Example

Lets say the Roller Blind is forty inches and the width of the window is 34 inches, the difference will be 6 inches. If you divide that by half it will give you 3 inches.

Then measure three inches either edge of the window frame. This is where you will place the brackets.

Mark the spot with a pencil where you will place the bracket


Place your drill-bit into the drill and screw the bracket into place.


With one end of the Roller Blind in the bracket place a level on top of the shade to measure it. Place the other bracket into the shade and mark the hole with the bracket. Then secure the bracket and insert the blind.
