Step 2. We apply curtains to the wall / ceiling, determine the exact place of their installation and mark the left and right edges of the curtain rod with the help of a tape measure and a level. Further from each mark (in the direction to the sides from the center) we make an indentation of 2-3 cm and also put the marks - these are the places for installing brackets-brackets.

Step 3. Now to these marks we put the right and left fasteners and mark the exact places of drilling directly on the holes for the screws. Drill these marks. The drilling depth should be 3-4 cm.

Vertical blinds

The installation of vertical blinds with their own hands involves the following steps:

Step 1. We check the equipment and lay out all the details on the working surface.

The set of vertical blinds includes: fasteners for blinds (brackets) 2 pcs., Screws, cornice, the curtains themselves in disassembled form (lamellas with weighting agents, lower connecting chain).

Step 2. Before installing the blinds, you need to make sure that their length suits you. To do this, attach one lamella to the desired location on the ceiling / wall / upper plane of the window opening. If the distance from the bottom of the curtains to the window sill or floor is less than 1-2 cm, then the lamellas should be shortened. You can do it yourself: get weighting agents, cut off excess and sew the edges back.

Step 3. Now you need to put the cornice to the ceiling / wall of the window opening, align and mark its right and left ends.

Then do the following:

  • If you are installing vertical blinds to the ceiling, then from the previously set marks, indent 2 -3 cm towards the center and put the marks again;
  • If you want to install the blinds against the wall, then from the previously placed labels, indent 5-6 cm towards the center and also mark.

If you mount the curtains in the opening of the window, then the ends of the cornice should not be marked, it is enough just to make notes, having receded from the walls of the opening 2-3 cm towards the center.

Further on these marks we apply fasteners for a jalousie and we note places of drilling. Thus, you will get 2 labels on the right and 2 labels on the left. Do not forget to attach the fasteners to the sides.

Note: for installation of curtains with a width of more than 1.6 m, an intermediate fastening of 10 cm from the control cord must be installed.

Step 4. Now drill holes through these marks. The drilling depth should be 4-5 cm.

Step 5. The right and left fasteners (in accordance with the sides and marks) are screwed to the ceiling / wall by screws.

Step 6. Insert and close the curtain rod in the fastener locks by turning and / or pressing the lever clockwise. If, however, you use conventional brackets for fixing, the cornice is simply screwed to them.

Step 7. By adjusting the cord, rotate the sliders so that they turn around the cornice (as shown below in the left photo) and proceed to fastening the slats, simply snapping them into the slots of the sliders.

Step 8. The lower chain is attached to the weights of the lamellas first from the outside, then cut off the excess and do the same on the back of the lamellas, and then with the second part of the lamellas. Well, that's all, the installation of vertical blinds is completed, it remains only to check the operation of the mechanism and adjust the position of the slats.
