How To Shorten Faux Wood Blinds

Article Posted By: Jae Warren

Beyond providing privacy and a way to filter light, installing faux wood blinds is an inexpensive way to dress up any window in your home. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors to complement your décor. All too often, however, you may end up purchasing blinds that are a little too long. The result is a puddle of slats sitting on top of the windowsill when the blinds are closed.

For some, this is not a big issue. But if you’re somewhat more meticulous and prefer your blinds to hang as flush as possible with the windowsill, check out this video. Jay from our Community Forums prepared this tutorial to teach you how to shorten premium faux wood blinds.

Jay makes it look so easy because it really is. In a few minutes, with nothing more than a few simple tools, including a pair of scissors or a utility knife, a flathead screwdriver and a Sharpie, you can customize the length of your blinds to hang at the perfect length for your window.

You’ll find the widest selection of blinds and window treatments as well as windows and window accessories online and in-store at The Home Depot.
