A handy guide to installing your Wooden Venetian blinds.
Venetian blinds are a simple, stylish and cost-effective choice when it comes to dressing your window. They are a versatile choice for any room in your house. Our made to measure wooden blinds are crafted from the highest quality materials including premium hardwood slats.
Venetian blinds are easy to install and can be done in a matter minutes with just a handful of common tools. We’re going to take you through the installation process step by step.
Here’s how to install your wooden Venetian blinds
What you’ll need:
Step 1 - Fix the brackets
The brackets are a universal type that can be used to top fix the blind into a recess or face fix into a frame or a wall.
Step 2 - Fit The Blind
Step 3 - Re-connecting the easy break connector chain
The safety tassel is designed to come apart to remove a hazardous loop. Should your device become separated, any free cords should be placed into one of the holes that are formed when the two halves of the tassel are put together.
Step 4 - Fitting the safety cleat
Safety cleats are designed to keep cords taut and out of reach of children – always wrap the cord around the cleat. Fix the safety cleat to the wall with 2 screws in a position that’s out of reach of children. Blinds that require a safety cleat must not be installed less than 1.5m from the floor.
Step 5 - Operating your blind
And that’s it! You should now have correctly installed your Wooden Venetian Blind. Need a little more help? Just follow the diagrams on our helpful downloadable guide. There’s plenty of tips that are sure to get you started.
Blinds can be potentially dangerous to small children. Looped or low hanging cords, chains or tapes can create hazardous loops which could lead to the risk of strangulation. We do everything we can to ensure your chosen product is child safe. As a minimum, all of our blinds meet the European Standard BS EN 13120 for safety.
