Fitting window blinds

One of the reasons you might not have opted for a beautiful new window blind is the issue of fitting it. You might not feel confident doing it yourself or may not have the time or the tools to do your own fitting.

Check out our measuring guides & fitting instructions here to find easy step by step guides on how to fit each blind type. We also have some video tutorials available on our Youtube channel where you can see how easy fitting blinds is.

Hiring A Window Blinds Fitter

If you're still a little unsure, there are some easy ways to find someone who can help when it comes to fitting your blinds. You can always try searching your local classifieds for a handyperson who can come and fit your blinds for you. To someone who has the experience, it should be quite a straightforward job and they should come prepared with the tools and fittings they'll need (be sure to let them know that screws are needed - we don't supply these as standard due to the fact that each window can have its own unique requirements).

Another popular method of finding someone to help you fit your blinds is the website My Hammer. Not only will you be able to search for Tradespeople in your local area, you'll also be able to see reviews to help you make an informed decision on who to hire. You can also post your request for free and receive quotes from local experts.

Be aware that you will need to inform a fitter beforehand of any unusual issues or considerations, such as a bay window or large lintel directly above your window. An experienced fitter will know how to get around these issues and can arrive prepared with the correct tools and fixings.
