Of all of today’s modern window treatments, shades are some of the easiest options to install. If you’re looking for ways to improve your home while saving money, you may want to handle your shade installation on your own. If you’re looking for tips on how to achieve this goal, the video posted below can really help.
In the video, the host shows how to install a roller shade in a window. The roller shade he uses comes with its own hardware and only requires a few extra tools to install. The tools you’ll need include a step ladder, measuring tape or ruler, pencil, hammer, and screwdriver.
First, you’ll need to check the fit of the roller shade in the window and determine where you want it. It’s important to do this with the shade completely rolled up because this increases the diameter of the uppermost part of the shade. Mark the location you want the hardware to go with a pencil. Then, you can install the hardware separately from the roller shade. Most hardware is installed with nails you can hammer into the window frame.
Once your hardware is installed, you can slot the roller shade into place. The whole process should only take you half an hour at most, even if you have no experience with roller shade installation.
