There are many ways to take the hassle out of roller blind installation. Once you have window measurements, you can order a roller blind at any store that sells them. You’ll find that some stores offer free installation or discounts for people who need help installing their roller blinds. But if you still want to do it yourself, here’s how to install your own roller blinds with ease!
What you need to know before installing your roller blinds
It’s important to know the size of your window before you start. Measure your window to ensure that you order the correct size roller blind for your windows.
Next, you’ll need a screwdriver. If you’re not sure if you have one, purchase a universal screwdriver kit that has a wide variety of heads and sizes in one small package. This will help make it easier for you to change out the screws when needed.
Locate where the roller blind will hang on your window and secure it there with a drill or screwdriver. You can find these at any hardware store or online. Make sure to keep track of which side of the roller blind goes on top!
When it comes to hanging the roller blind, first use panes of glass or plastic as spacers between each individual eyelet hole so that they won’t tear apart easily. Make sure these spacers are spaced evenly and are placed close enough together so they can be used as guides as well. Hanging the roller blind is simple once they are already up on the window frame!
The first step – Measurements and cutting
The first step is to measure your window. You’ll need an accurate measurement of the width and height of your window. Once you have these measurements, use a ruler to draw a straight line on the wall that is two inches from the corner of your window.
Next, measure out two inches from that line and cut along the line with a hacksaw or utility knife. This will leave you with the mounting bracket for your roller blinds and the channel for it to slide through.
The second step – Connecting the eyelets
The first step is to connect the eyelets. You’ll need two wire connectors and some sticky tape. The wire connectors will go on either side of the roller blind, sticking out of the bottom of it. Keep in mind that you should make sure that there are no obstructions in front of the window or anywhere else before connecting your wire connectors.
The third step – Installing the roller blind

Step 3: Installing the roller blind onto the window
First, decide where you want to install your roller blind. Then, tape up any areas that you don’t want to cut with painters tape and use a pencil to mark a line along the edge of your roller blind. You can use this line as a guide when you’re cutting or drilling. Once you’ve identified which side of your window you want to place your roller blind, measure out this distance and then mark it on the ground with chalk. Now take two screwdrivers and insert them into these two points on either side of your marked distance. Next, position one of your screwdrivers in front of one end at 90 degrees and rotate it to lock it in place. This will be the “hinge” for your roller blind. Once you’ve created this “hinge,” use a drill with a 1/4-inch bit to drill through both sides of the drywall at this hinge point in order to anchor it into place. Now take your other screwdriver and insert it into the hole on either side of this same hinge point from behind. Next, twist each screwdriver until they meet in an L shape and tighten them down firmly with pliers or vice grips until they are snug against each other (about 4-5 turns). You can now
This guide should give you a good overview of the roller blind installation process. It covers everything from measuring and cutting to connecting the eyelets and installing the roller blind.
