Roller Blinds are gaining popularity day by day because of several additional utilities associated with them. Roller blinds not only saves the house from the unpleasant heat of the sun rather there are several other advantages as well which make them superior than curtains. One very big advantage is that it is easy to adjust them as per requirement. Now the question which must be emerging in your mind must be how to shorten the blinds and is it possible?

The answer to this question is that yes it is possible to shorten roller blinds and a brief description of the procedure is discussed here. In order to shorten the blinds the first step is to get away the bottom rail plugs in order to get the string ladders free and to see the lift cord which is in the form of knot. Thereafter just free the knot and pull the lift cords in the upward direction to such extent that you are able to free the slats which you want to get away from there.

The next step after this is to plan in advance what is the length you are looking for and thereafter just put the bottom rail in the end of the ladder. Then just reduce the string ladder which is seen hanging below the bottom rail. While doing so you should keep in mind that there must be sufficient ladder available in order to have the option to put more strings if required later. After the completion of these steps the next work to do is to get the lift cord pass through the hole of the bottom rail and then just put a strong knot over there so as to keep it at hold. Here also it is important to consider that there is no bend in the bottom rail and it is hanging in the right straight position as required. Now just make the length as per your choice by either making the lift cord go up or down.

If you are not satisfied with the length no need to worry at all as there are other options available as well like you can add more of the ladders there. After this the last step is to get the bottom rail plugs replaced from their position and then small work with your hammer and you are done with your work. By the above way you would be able to shorten the roller in the manner as desirable. So now with these roller blinds you are able to decorate your windows in the manner you want and you want to have special size of roller blinds for your windows that is possible as well by just shortening the roller blind with the above mentioned procedure.
