Blinds are one of the most popular types of window covers sold today. Offering the perfect balance between style and function, blinds come in many different styles, colours, materials, and textures that it is easy to find something for everyone.
While it is certainly possible to measure and install blinds yourself, there can be some potential risks in doing so. For instance, blinds that aren’t precisely measured will not fit the window as well as it could, which could create a very unattractive look in the room, not to mention ruining their overall effectiveness.
Also, installing blinds is often easier said than done. You may eventually be able to complete the job, but it could take quite some time and result in plenty of stress! Plus, it is surprisingly easy to make a mistake when installing blinds, which could result in them falling down from the window and becoming damaged.
Let’s take a closer look at why professional blind measuring and fitting is important!
Measuring to achieving the perfect fit
As previously mentioned, blinds that are not properly measured will not properly fit the window they are supposed to cover. Even missing the dimension by a small fraction can result in an improper fit, and this can ruin the overall aesthetic that blinds offer, ruining one of their most notable benefits.
When a professional comes out to measure your rooms for blinds, you can be sure they will get the measurements down perfectly. They will know the process inside out and can get the most accurate measurements needed to ensure your blinds achieve the perfect fit.
Installing to save time and hassle
While it is certainly possible to install blinds on your own, there is no denying that it is an unappealing task for most. Installing blinds is easier said than done; you will need plenty of patience and all of the right tools for the job, and be willing to take sacrifice some of your valuable free time.
All of this and you still don’t guarantee a proper installation!
A professional blind installer will be able to get all of your blinds installed perfectly, allowing you to spend your time elsewhere. Plus, you may end up saving money by not having to invest in certain tools you don’t have for the job!
Ensures problem-free installation
Installing blinds can be done by yourself, but there is no guarantee that the finished job won’t lead to issues down the line. From poorly installed fixtures to accidental damage from drilling, there is no shortage of problems you may come across during and after your attempts to install blinds.
A professional blind installer ensures the job is done perfectly and there will be no problems down the line. Once the blinds are installed, they will be ready to use and will not cause you any headaches – the blinds will function exactly as they are designed to.
It is often necessary
While DIY blind installation is certainly possible for the most, there are some instances when a professional installer is simply necessary. This is typically the case with blinds that come with motorised functions.
For example, motorised blinds require wiring and a proper installation, so without a trained professional doing the work you will likely end up with motorised blinds that cannot even function correctly.
