There are several ways to fit your Fit Roller Blinds. The most common way is to measure the window and cut the blind accordingly. If you want a perfect fit, use a cutting mat or straight edge as an extension of the top of the window. You can also use a pencil and ruler to find the correct width before cutting your Fit Roller Blinds.
If you’re working with a pre-cut blind, simply pull until it goes over the top of the window and then pull down on each end until it’s tight against the wall. This will create tension in the material so that when you take off one side of the roller, it won’t sag when you roll up that side.
