Follow our simple guides below for fitting for your wooden/fauxwood venetian blinds. 

Wooden Venetian blinds add a touch of elegance and functionality to any room. Whether you're fitting them inside a recess or outside, proper installation ensures a polished look and optimal performance. Below is a comprehensive guide to help you fit your wooden Venetian blinds seamlessly.

Inside Recess Fitting:

  1. Measurements:
    • Measure the width of the recess at three different points: top, middle, and bottom. Record the shortest width.
    • Measure the drop from the top of the recess to the windowsill. Record the shortest drop.
    • Ensure there are no obstructions within the recess that could interfere with the operation of the blinds.
  1. Choosing Blinds:
    • Select blinds that match the recorded measurements or are slightly smaller to fit comfortably within the recess.
    • Consider the depth of the recess to ensure the blinds will have sufficient clearance for installation and operation.
  1. Mounting Brackets:
    • Attach the mounting brackets to the top inside edge of the recess using screws provided.
    • Position the brackets evenly spaced along the width of the recess, ensuring they are level.
  1. Installing Blinds:
    • Place the headrail of the blinds into the mounting brackets.
    • Secure the headrail by locking it into place or tightening the screws on the brackets.
    • Test the operation of the blinds to ensure smooth movement and proper alignment.
  1. Final Adjustments:
    • Use a spirit level to check if the blinds are level.
    • Trim any excess cords to avoid tangling and ensure a neat appearance.
    • Enjoy your newly installed wooden Venetian blinds inside the recess.

Outside Recess Fitting:

  1. Measurements:
    • Measure the width and height of the window frame or area where the blinds will be mounted.
    • Add extra width and height to ensure adequate coverage and light control.
  1. Selecting Blinds:
    • Choose blinds that match the adjusted measurements and complement the window and room decor.
    • Consider the depth of the window frame to ensure compatibility with the selected blinds.
  1. Mounting Brackets:
    • Position the brackets outside the window frame, ensuring they are level and evenly spaced.
    • Use a pencil to mark the screw hole locations for each bracket.
  1. Installing Blinds:
    • Attach the mounting brackets to the marked locations using screws and a drill.
    • Place the headrail of the blinds into the brackets and secure it in place.
    • Ensure the blinds are centered within the window frame and adjust the brackets if necessary.
  1. Final Adjustments:
    • Use a spirit level to confirm the blinds are level.
    • Adjust the length of the cords as needed for proper operation and a tidy appearance.
    • Test the blinds to ensure smooth movement and optimal light control.

Important Tips:
