Q:How do I hang window blinds on a brick wall or a cement wall?
A:In order to install window blinds on a brick or cement wall you will need to use masonry anchors. These come in various styles and sizes. Make sure you choose a size that will fit the the holes in the mounting brackets. Masonry anchors consist of either a metal or plastic anchor that is inserted into a pre-drilled hole in the wall. A screw is then inserted into the anchor. As the screw is screwed into the anchor, the anchor expands and tightens to the wall.
Mark the holes where the brackets need to be installed. Place the brackets where you want to mount them and mark through the holes in the brackets.
Drill a pilot hole to accommodate the anchor using a masonry bit. Refer to the manufacturer instructions for proper hole size.
Insert the anchors into the pre-drilled pilots holes.
Align the window blind brackets with the holes and anchors. Screw the screws through the mounting brackets and into the anchors.
Insert the window blinds into the brackets and secure blinds.
Window blinds can be mounted on virtually any surface, whether you need to mount to metal, dry wall, plaster, or brick. Having the right tools and know how is the key to successfully mounting window blinds.
