A roller blind can be fitted in several ways, depending on the type of window you have - either directly onto a wooden frame or sash window or on the top or side of the window recess for metal or plastic frames. You will also need to decide on which side of the window you'd like your blind code to hang, making sure that it's easily accessible.
Step Two: Measuring And Marking
Using the manufacturer's instructions, mark the position of the screw holes of one of the brackets in the desired position at the top of the recess. Hold up the blind to the window in its estimated position to make sure it has enough clearance of window furniture to open smoothly. If not, consider repositioning it. Mark the screw holes of the first bracket, making sure tou put either the pin or blind code end on your chosen side. Carefully drill holes in the marked position. Insert wood or masonry rawl plugs and then screw the first bracket into the wall or the frame.
Step Three: Fix The Second Bracket
Check that the blind is level by measuring the position of the first bracket and transferring the measurements to the other side. Drill and fix the second bracket as before.
Fitting the blind inside the recess requires exact measurements, but you can be more flexible with the blind size if you fit the roller outside the recess.
If you are fitting the blind to a wood surround rather than masonry, you can screw directly into the wood (start the hole first with a bradawl), and no drilling or wall plugs are needed.
