Installing Roman Shades can be a bit tricky. It isn't very difficult, but it can be hard without someone to help. Grab a friend and follow these steps!
Things You'll Need
- L brackets
- Tape measure
- Drill or screwdriver
- 2" Phillips Head screws
- A friend to help!
Measure about 6 inches in from the outside edges of the board on the top of your shade. Mark these spots with a pencil and drill holes to match your screw diameters.
Using the same measurement as above, measure your wall/window frame the exact same distance in. Mark this with a pencil and drill a hold to match your screw diameters.
Install your L brackets onto the wall or window frame using the holes you've already drilled.
Have your friend help you by holding the roman shade up and placing the holes drilled into the board on top of the L brackets installed on the wall/window frame. Working from below, use the drill to screw the top of the L bracket to the bottom of your Roman Shade mounting board. Done!
Tips & Warnings
- Make sure the area you are installing the L brackets to has good support. If needed, use wall anchors for added support.
