Measuring made safe and stress-free.
No need to worry – you’re in good hands and you have the ability to get this right. With the ‘measure 3 times and pick the lowest measurement’ rule you can’t fail. You will get your aluminium venetian blinds exactly right every time. ‘Inside the reveal’ instructions and ‘outside the reveal’ instructions are available as downloadable pdf’s, below. However for the most part aluminium venetian blinds go ‘inside the reveal’ for a neat finish and the following 3 steps are based on this…
1. Measure for width.
Grabbing your trusty tape measure, measure the width of the recess, where your aluminium venetian blind will be installed; in three places: near the top, in the middle, and near the bottom. Make sure you hold the tape measure level and measure from inside edge to inside edge of the reveal. If you need help, grab a friendly family member or pet with opposable thumbs. Make note of the smallest width in millimetres – this will be the measurement you use.
2. Now for the drop (height).
Measure for the drop of the aluminium venetian blind by measuring inside the recess in three places: at the left, in the centre, and at the right. Again make sure you measure from inside edge to inside edge while holding the tape measure perpendicular to the sill. Make note of the shortest drop in millimetres – this will be the measurement you use. “Why not the longest measurement in this case you’re thinking” – if we chose the longest measurement the bottom-rail of the blind may hit the sill at the shortest height and appear crooked. We want the bottom-rail to sit neatly just above the window sill.
3. Supply measurements.
Enter your measurements in the ‘Get A Quote’ tool as ‘width’ X ‘drop’ in millimetres (mm). If you are getting us to check measure and install and don’t want to measure exactly exact then enter approximate dimensions for pricing only. If you are after the DIY approach but want a quick price first you might also enter approximate dimensions for your aluminium venetian blinds first. However exact measurements will be required if proceeding with an order as a DIY client.
A lefty or a righty.
Another important decision to make – do you require the controls (tilt wand and pull cords) of your aluminium venetian blind to be on the left or the right? Approach this with both aesthetics and practicalities in mind. When the two aren’t in harmony, choose the practical approach. Weigh up these thoughts to help you decide: “cords away from openings won’t blow in the wind or get caught”, “cords away from room corners will be easier to operate”, “cords away from corners of the room look more pleasing to the eye (sometimes not)”, “cords out of line of sight when approaching a room may be more aesthetic”, and most importantly, probably, when all is said and done, “can I reach the controls comfortably – what obstacles may be in the way now or later?”

Installing your blinds made easy.
Aluminium Venetian blinds are easy to install yourself. And with your own step by step instructions it’s now even easier. For the most part aluminium venetian blinds are installed within the window reveal. Follow steps 1, 2, and 3 below…
1. Getting in the zone.
The tools of choice for any aspiring aluminium venetian blind installer are a screwdriver (or power drill with the appropriate bit), the provided screws (1 screw per bracket), and a step ladder, pencil, & tape measure. You might be so natural at this you don’t even need the last 3 items!
Carefully unpack your brand new silver aluminium venetian blinds.
2. Fitting the brackets.
So you’re in the zone and full of confidence, it’s time to fit the brackets. Fit the aluminium venetian blind brackets at the desired depth within the reveal. It’s more common to install the aluminium venetian blinds closer to the architrave face than deep in the reveal however it’s up to you – just be sure your aluminium venetian blinds are going to miss any handles or other protrusions in the reveal when raised and lowered. 10mm back from the architrave face makes those aluminium venetian blinds look the business.
Blind width dictates how many brackets are required – here’s the guide… Aluminium Venetian blinds up to 1m wide, use 2 brackets. Between 1–2m use 3 brackets. 2–3m use 4. And 3–4m use 5 brackets to firmly secure your new blinds in place.
Measure 105mm in from each end of your window – that’s where the two end brackets go. Screw them in and if your blind requires more than two brackets, place those evenly along the blind’s width. TIP 1: That being said don’t fit brackets directly above the aluminium venetian blind control unit thingy or any of the ladder cradles – and a bracket must be placed between your control unit and the first ladder cradle next to it. TIP 2: lie your aluminium venetian blind on the window sill in such a way that you can view where the control unit and ladder cradles are within the headrail to assist with bracket placement.
3. Fitting the aluminium venetian blind.
Well done, that’s the wordy detailed part of the installation over. Now just securely clip the aluminium venetian blind into its brackets, making sure each bracket audibly clicks. The wand and control cord are at the front of the headrail, facing into the room – obvious I know – but you may be a slightly overwhelmed first timer. Once secure you can confidently raise, lower and tilt your blind while marvelling at both your new aluminium venetian blind and the new skills you have just acquired.
A little care goes a long way.
You’ve spent good money on great blinds – don’t get complacent; with a little love now and again you’ll get years and years out of your aluminium venetian blinds. Close the aluminium venetian blind slats to gently dust with a duster or soft cloth or to vacuum on the lowest setting with a soft brush attachment (test this last method gently first). For a more thorough clean, sponge down the aluminium venetian blinds with a mild soapy detergent in warm water and dry with a lint-free cloth. Professional blind cleaning is recommended annually or every other year to get the longest life out of your aluminium venetian blinds. Get A Quote.

" After spending about a month researching the options we selected Ryan and Matt (Blinds Online) to fit our new house at Hobsonville Point, in Auckland, with aluminium venetian blinds. Not only were they very price competitive, the blinds were ready when they said they would be and were installed quickly, neatly professionally by Matt. We have been really pleased with our decision since that time. Recently our 4 year old managed to break a part on one of the blinds. After a week trying all the possible companies in West Auckland, with no luck, we finally contacted Blinds Online again told "no problems, we'll sort it out". Excellent customer service. Toby. "
