How to make sure your blinds fit smoothly

Choosing your blinds if just the first step in getting your windows looking and feeling great. But, how do you make sure they fit as smoothly as possible?

Here are a few tips to ensure that your blinds fit smoothly:

1. Measure accurately:

Measure the width and height of your window to ensure that the blinds you purchase will fit properly.

2. Install according to instructions:

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing the blinds to ensure that they are installed correctly.

3. Check for level:

Make sure the blinds are level, as an uneven installation can cause the blinds to hang unevenly.

4. Adjust the tension:

Adjust the tension on the lift cord or tilt wand to ensure that the blinds open and close smoothly.

5. Check for obstructions:

Make sure that there are no obstructions blocking the movement of the blinds, such as furniture or other window treatments.

6. Clean the tracks:

Clean the tracks of the blinds regularly to ensure that they move smoothly and are not impeded by dust or debris.

7. Check the brackets:

Check that the brackets that hold the blinds are tight and secure, and that they are not bent or damaged in any way.

8. Tighten screws:

If the blinds are not moving smoothly, it could be that the screws are loose. Tighten them to see if that resolves the issue.

Final thoughts

Additionally, check that the bracket is mounted securely to the wall, if the bracket is not secure, blinds will sag and won't fit properly.
