Hanging Blinds with Command Strips
Command strips follow the rule of ‘peel and stick’. These strips come with a heavy-duty adhesive which is sealed in a protective strip. When it comes to hanging blinds, you have to peel off the protective strip and press the tape to the inside of the window frame or the upper trim. Make sure to apply enough pressure so that they create a grip on the frame. Wait for a few minutes and attach the blinds properly. The strips come in different standard sizes and are made of paper which ensures you can trim them to your required window blind size. While doing this procedure be sure to follow all the instructions carefully, otherwise, the wrong method can remove paint from the wall or damage the frame.
How to Get the Right Command Strips
Command strips come in multiple sizes and follow some weight restrictions when it comes to hanging window designs. So before you hang any blind, know the weight capacity of your product because overloading the strips with heavyweight or large blinds can affect the functional aspects and eventually can fall down. You can always measure the blinds before you place an order for your command strips. And make sure the strips are made of strong and durable adhesive.
How Long Do Command Strips Last?
These strips are designed to stay as long as you want. You can use them as a temporary basis or as a permanent hanging solution.
Can I Remove Command Strips in the Future?
If you don’t need the strips in the future or moving out to somewhere else, then you can easily remove them from the wall. Take a hairdryer and run it on the strips for 30 seconds. Use dental floss or fishing line to cut the adhesive strips gently. You can reuse them for your next blind installation.
