Window shades are a great window treatment that helps to improve your home’s energy efficiency. If you are thinking of getting new shades for your window, there are a few steps to the installation process. In this article, we will review the process of shade installations.
The first part of shade installations is to make sure that you have all of the tools you will need. Besides the shades themselves, you will need, measuring tape and a drill.
Once you have all of your tools ready you need to measure the shades and the windows. This is to ensure that the shades are properly sized to fit the windows that you are installing them on.
Next you will need to install the mounting brackets. Mounting brackets go on the top of the window frame and they hold the shades. You are going to use a drill and secure the brackets onto the window.
When the brackets are in place you are ready to install the shades. You can install them either inside the window frame or on top of it. No matter the option you go with, you must make sure they are secure before you finish the installation.
