How do I go about getting new blinds to fit my windows?
The Home Depot has three ways to purchase window treatments: 1) Stock Blinds and Shades – These are great when you only need basic colors, styles, and features. These come in common colors and most can be cut down in the store to fit your windows. 2) Special Order Blinds and Shades – These are available in colors, materials, features, and sizes that are not available in our stock blind program, allowing you to showcase your individual style. The Home Depot will install both stock and custom blinds in your entire home for just $159 (skylights are extra). 3) In-Home Design – This program brings a professional designer into your home for a free consultation. The designer will help you pick the best blinds to meet your needs and complement your existing décor. The designer will provide a price quote, and can take payment right in your home. Once the custom blinds are manufactured, we will deliver and install them as part of the total package.
What is the difference between blinds and shades?
Blinds and shades provide different looks and ambiance for your room. Blinds offer a vertical or horizontal option in a variety of materials from wood to vinyl. Blinds tend to provide better light control and privacy, as they are a hard window treatment versus shades, which are a soft window treatment. Shades come in an array of colors, fabrics, and designs. They provide natural lighting for your room and offer an additional design element to tie in with your room’s decor. Our in-home design service will bring options to your home and provide a personal design consultation to help you make the right selection for your style and space.
What is the proper way to hang and install window treatments?
The first step of installing new blinds or shades is proper measurement. Consider if inside or outside mounting is best for your room, and measure the space of the window. An inside mount provides little room for error. Once you’re ready to install, there are several things to consider, including installation hardware like anchors and what type of surface you’re mounting in to. Be sure that you are installing your product straight and level as well. We recommend having one of our licensed professionals handle your project to ensure a smooth and accurate installation.
Should I have window treatments mounted inside or outside the window opening?
If a window isn’t square or has a shallow window frame, an outside mount is ideal for hanging blinds and shades. An inside mount provides a cleaner look and can be mounted as shallow or deep as you prefer.
How much does installation cost for blinds and shades?
The Home Depot will install all the blinds and shades in your home for $159 (skylights are extra).
How do I clean my new window treatments after installation?
We recommend regular light dusting or vacuuming to keep your window treatments clean. If you vacuum your product, be sure to use the brush attachment and vertical strokes in order to carefully clean your blinds or shades. If you need to spot clean your window treatments, we recommend a mild detergent and a clean, white cloth.
Installed blinds and shades do more than create a unique look for your home; they also provide privacy and help regulate interior temperatures, making them one of the smartest investment projects because of their lasting impact.
When it comes to choosing the right blind or shade to fit your style and need, The Home Depot has two top-rated services to get the job done with only the best shades and blinds installers, along with high-quality products from leading brands.
Our measure and install service puts you in the driver seat as the designer, working with an in-store associate to manage measures, delivery, and installation. No matter which products you choose, your new blinds or shades are backed by manufacturer warranties and come with a one-year guarantee on all installations.
Hanging Window Blinds and Shades
Before you can properly hang new window treatments, it’s crucial to ensure the measurements were accurate and will fit your window opening perfectly. Measurements change depending on whether you prefer an inside mount, outside mount, or you’re switching from one to the other. Our professional measurement services will guarantee a perfect fit and free you from worrying about whether or not the new blinds or shades will fit properly. Instead of hanging them yourself, let us do it for you.
Custom Window Treatments
High-quality, custom window treatments are available through our comprehensive service that guides you through each step of the project, from the free in-home consultation to installation of the blinds or shades. During the consultation you’ll see samples of the products available, have the ability to ask questions and address concerns, as well as get final estimates and expectations for the project’s timeline. Design and purchase custom blinds and shades today!
The total cost of your window treatment installation project will depend on the products you choose, how many windows you’re adding treatments to and if you choose to opt for special features like motorized blinds or blackout cellular shades.
