Can You Install Blinds or Shades Yourself?

Installing new window treatments is a great way to add vibrance and style to any home or office space.

It might seem like an easy project to handle on your own. It can’t be that difficult, right?

You can install blinds or shades yourself, but there are a lot of things that can go wrong when installing blinds or shades without professional help.

You might have to spend a lot of time getting them straight, only to discover they don’t fit your windows as well as they should. Unfortunately, this is a common problem with ready-made window treatments from big box stores.

When you work with a design professional like one from Louver Shop, we’ll walk you through the process from start to finish. You’ll see for yourself just how comprehensive the process can be!

We’ll start with a free, in-home consultation to create custom window treatments just for your home. Then our factory-trained experts will professionally install them.

Here are four benefits for hiring a professional instead of installing blinds or shades yourself.

  1. You’ll Find the Right Window Treatment
  2. If you do it yourself, you may find out too late that the color you’ve chosen doesn’t match your décor.

    When you work with a professional like Louver Shop, we’ll bring the showroom to your living room. You’ll soon discover there are lots of styles, materials and colors to choose from.

    And that’s a good thing! We’ll work with you to find the right option for your needs.

  3. No Surprise Costs
  4. Putting up a new set of window treatments only to discover they’re crooked or too small can be a disaster. It could cost you a lot of time and money to correct the problem.

    At Louver Shop, we provide you with a Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote so you’ll know your total cost up-front. We also offer flexible payments through financing to make your new window treatments even more affordable.

    When you have a factory-trained installer, you’ll benefit from their experience and knowledge to stop problems before they start.

  5. Avoid Damaging Your Home or Business
  6. There’s a lot to keep track of when installing new window treatments: measurements, drilling spots and even the weight of the window treatments.

    You might have to use a different kind of bracket or screw to avoid a bad fit in the mount. Making the wrong choice could mean damaging the area around your windows. And result in costly repairs.

    Installation becomes even more complicated depending on the extra options you want. And means there’s even more to keep track of.

    Hiring a professional means never having to worry about all the small details. You’ll have more time to focus on more important things.

  7. Great Condition for Years to Come
  8. You never know what you’re going to get when you buy a ready-made window treatment from a foreign country.

    At Louver Shop, we manufacture all of our window treatments in the United States. Plus, we back them with one of the best warranties in the business. You can consider us a safety net for your blinds and shades for years to come.
