How to hang roll-up shades


Step 1. At the top bottom and middle of the window frame, measure the opening between the side jambs. Make a quick diagram of the window and note the smallest of the three measurements.

 

Step 2. Measure the height of the window frame (between the top and bottom), at each side, and in the middle. Add the largest of these measurements to your diagram. With your diagram in hand, purchase blinds or shades to fit the window If possible, have the retailer cut the blinds or shades to your specifications. If that’s not possible, buy the closest size (a bit smaller) to the window opening.

 

Step 3. To cut standard roll-up shades to length, remove the slat from the bottom edge and cut through the hem with scissors. Carefully tear the material until you reach the roller tube. Follow the manufacturer’s specific instructions.

 

Step 4. Remove the excess cardboard, and then remove the roller end from the tube. Cut the tube to length with a hacksaw (metal) or finetooth wood saw (cardboard).
