how much do blinds cost to install?

home   ›   blog   ›   how much do blinds cost to install?

A wonderful new set of blinds can completely change a room. You will have more control over the sunlight that gets into your home or office, you can enjoy more privacy from the outside world and - of course! - your space will simply look so much better. 

But, if you have started to look for your fantastic new set, you may have realised something - who's going to install them? This kind of product is one that works best if it is properly fitted and installed into your window's frame, so it's only natural to want to have it installed correctly. 

If you do not have a lot of experience with home DIY projects or anything else that involves pulling out your toolset, the thought of installing your blinds yourself might be intimidating. 

So, how much would it cost to have someone come and install them for you? Or are there alternative solutions to this problem?

how much do I have to pay to have my new window treatment installed?

There actually isn't a set price on how much installation will cost because the exact number will depend on several factors. It could depend on what kind of product you buy because more complicated blinds may have more complicated installation processes, or it could also depend on how many windows you're having altered. 

So, to really get the exact number, the best thing you should do is call your seller for an in-home consultation. This may be the best option if you want your window treatment to be professionally installed. When you have professionals come to help, you can have peace of mind and know that there will be no problems and the job will get done on time. 

Blinds are primarily used to control light and heat that gets into your home. So, you can imagine how improperly installing your new set or improperly measuring your windows can mess up their ability to block out sunlight. 

So, remember:

  • The cost of your installation will depend on several factors. You should request a quote from your seller to get an exact number.

  • Professional installation is one of the best options you can choose because you can have good peace of mind knowing that the job will get done right.

  • Improperly installing your new window treatment or improperly measuring your windows can lead to your blinds not working as they should.
