Roman blinds are definitely some ultra-stylish window treatments. They add so much elegance and class to any room. But the big question for our DIY customers remains: are roman blinds easy to install? When we say our window treatments are simple to DIY, we really mean it. Read on to find out just how simple it is to install roman blinds on your own.
How Do I Simplify Roman Blinds Installation?
Before we get into installation, let’s start with how to measure. If your blinds aren’t the right size – no matter the style – the installation will be downright impossible. To make sure you have the right measurements, check our measuring guide beforehand. You’ll have to decide if you want your roman shades to be inside mount (inside the window frame) or outside mount (outside the frame). Inside mount measurements need to be exact so be sure to watch the measuring video to find out how to measure correctly.
We recommend an outside mount if you prefer to hide your window frame and if you would like to create a blackout effect. No light will enter this way. Otherwise, you can go for an inside mount and keep your window frame on display.

This will help you understand the process before you dive in. Be sure to select the installation guide that corresponds to your exact product as there may be differences from one product to another. Next, grab a drill and whatever else the instructions recommend. In terms of tools, a drill is all you’ll need. DIYing your own windows is simple and easy – we promise!

How to Avoid Common Installation Pitfalls
To avoid any issues when installing your window treatments, read the instructions and follow them all. Go one step at a time and remember that you never need to use force. If something doesn’t fit smoothly, go back and see if there was an error somewhere along the way. Forcing things into place can damage the products and make it impossible for you to complete installation.
