Installing Roman Blinds

Step-by-step instructions to install roman blinds in 20 minutes or less!


Installation of roman blinds is easy, fast and can be done by yourself. Everything you need to know can be found below and while these steps are specifically tailored to the blinds that we sell, they can be applied to almost any manufacturer. To start, let's take a look at what you will need.

You Will Need:

  • Child Safety Clips (included)
  • Screwdriver (not included)
  • Electric Drill (not included)
  • Tape Measure (not included)
  • Pencil (not included)

Please Note: Unless otherwise specified, screws and wall plugs are not included. You will need to choose the correct hardware to match your home.


Top Fixing Installation

  • Step 1

    For an inside-recess installation, brackets can be fixed to the top of the window recess.

    For an outside-recess installation, measure the blinds and window recess to determine where the blinds should sit for a symmetrical overlap. See the diagram below for details.

  • Step 2

    Hold each bracket where they will be installed and use a pencil to mark the position of the hole you will drill. Choose a suitable wall plug and screw thread for the surface you're drilling.

  • Step 3

    Once the brackets are secured, clip the headrail into the brackets by angling it towards you and then pushing into position until it clicks.

    If you need to release the headrail, push the button on the front of the bracket to loosen the grip.


Face Fixing Installation

  • Step 1

    For an inside-recess installation, brackets can be fixed to the window frame or wall.

    For an outside-recess installation, measure the blinds and window recess to determine where the blinds should sit for a symmetrical overlap. See the diagram below for details.

  • Step 2

    Hold each bracket where they will be installed and use a pencil to mark the position of the hole you will drill. Choose a suitable wall plug and screw thread for the surface you're drilling.

    Please Note: for a face-fix installation you will need to measure from the outside edge of the brackets to avoid placing them too closely.

  • Step 3

    Once the brackets are secured, clip the headrail into the brackets by angling it towards you and then pushing into position until it clicks.

    If you need to release the headrail, push the button on the front of the bracket to loosen the grip.

Child Safety Instructions:

  • Step 1

    Hook the safety device onto the chain, then position it at the bottom to prevent excess slack in the chain.

    Please Note: child safety devices are required to minimize risk of entanglement for children or pets.
