For people who love DIY projects, installing cellular blinds would be a great way to save money on installation fees and it makes a great afternoon project. If you are not into do-it-yourself projects, but you still want to attempt the installation of honeycomb blinds by yourself, don’t worry our products come with easy to understand installation manuals. Also, we have listed some general tips below to help you install your Levolor cellular shades or any other brand you’ve chosen.
Read the Manual
While this is very obvious, a lot of people forego reading the instruction manual thinking that it would be easy figuring out how to install cellular blinds without reading the manual. If it is your first time installing honeycomb blinds or Levolor cellular shades, it is strongly recommended that you follow the manual. The manuals usually include helpful tips as well as trouble shooting guides for any issues you might encounter.
Before you start the installation process of your honeycomb blinds make sure that you have all the tools ready. Some of the basic tools that you would need include measuring tape, pencil or marker, power drill and drill bits, and a screwdriver. You can also check the installation manual for other tools that may be needed.
Now that you have your tools ready to install your honeycomb blinds, you should also organize all the components of the cellular shades before starting the installation. Carefully open up the packaging and place each shade in the room it will be installed. Next, take the installation brackets and screws you will need for each shade and place them next to your window. The installation manual will let you know how many brackets and screws each shade will need. This will save you time and headache when you start.
Measure twice, cut once. Don’t make mistakes when drilling; make sure that your measurements are correct. Double check your measurements prior to installing the brackets to avoid more holes in the wall or casement than is necessary when installing Levolor cellular shades or any honeycomb blinds.
By following the installation manual and keeping in mind these general tips, you will be well on your way to installing that perfect window treatment for the home or any establishment.
