How to cut Home Decorators Collection Blinds- the steps

This blind can be easily customized to fit any window in your home and is a great way to get the perfect look for any room.
Cutting your own blinds may seem like a daunting task, but with a few simple steps, you can easily achieve a professional looking finish. The first step is to measure your window. Once you have your measurement, you will need to decide what type of cut you would like for your blind. Home Decorators Collection offers three different cut types: standard, flush and inside mount.
Standard: A standard cut is the most common type of cut for home decorators collection blinds. This type of cut allows for about ½ inch of space between the edge of the blind and the window frame. This is the best type of cut if you have small children or pets in your home as it provides a bit of extra space in case they bump into the blind.
Flush: A flush cut is when the edge of the blind is even with the window frame. This provides a clean look and requires no additional space around the perimeter of the window. If you choose this type of cut, be sure to measure your window very accurately as there is no room for error with this type of cut.
Inside Mount: An inside mount is when the blind is mounted on the inside of the window frame. This provides a clean, finished look but does require additional space around the perimeter of the window. The minimum amount of space needed for an inside mount is 2 inches but 3 inches is preferred to allow for easy operation of the blinds.
Once you have decided on which type of cut you would like, simply follow these easy steps:
1) Using a tape measure, measure from one end of the track to the other end and then add 4 inches to allow for head clearance when raising and lowering yourblinds; this will be your cutting measurement
2) Using a hacksaw or sawzall, carefully cut throughthe aluminum track at your cutting measurement; be sure notto damage or nickthe plastic slats

5. After all four brackets are attached securely to each corner of your window frame, it’s time to attach your actual Home Decorators Collection Blinds!

6.

Case studies of people who have cut Home Decorators Collection Blinds
Home Decorators Collection Blinds are a type of window covering that is becoming increasingly popular in homes and businesses. Unlike traditional blinds, they are made of a material that is designed to be cut with scissors. This makes them much easier to install and removes the need for a drill or other power tools.
There are a few things to keep in mind when cutting Home Decorators Collection Blinds. First, the material is very strong and can be easily cut with scissors. However, it is also very thin and can be damaged if not cut properly. Second, the material is designed to be cut on a diagonal. This means that you will need to use two hands to cut the blinds correctly.
To ensure that you are cutting the blinds correctly, it is important to follow these steps:
1) Measure the width of the window that you want to cover with the blinds. This will give you the measurement for how long you need to cut the blinds.
2) Cut the blinds on a diagonal so that they fit evenly across the window. Be sure to use sharp scissors so that you do not damage theblinds.
3) Once you have cut the blinds, take a moment to check them for any damaged or loose pieces of material. If there are any damaged pieces, simply discard them and continue with Step 4.
4) Install the blinds by attaching them to the top of the window using adhesive strips or by screwing them into place.
