Cut Down Service

If you plan to replace a window treatment with a new product, we can cut the
old treatment to fit another window of a smaller size! If you miss measure or order the incorrect size. We may be able to help you alter your window covering.

Leave the difficult work to us.

Please be advised that most manufacture warranties are invalid if the window covering is altered from its original production specifications (i.e. cut down, resize


shortened, etc.) by anyone other than the original fabricator.

I can not guarantee any cut down. There is always a possibility that the blind would be cut to the wrong size, or the material could be damaged when taking the blind apart.

We offer this service to the following product Micro-mini blinds, Mini blinds, Wood blinds, Roller Shades, Bamboo rollup, Cellular Shades, Vertical Blinds, Horizontal Blinds, Honey Comb Shades, Crystal Pleat,  Pleated Shades, Skylights and Cordless Shades. We do not cut down  Accordian Shade, Luminette Shade, Silhouette® Window Shadings, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, Nantucket™ Window Shadings or Vertiglide

  1. The main reason the string breaks in mini blinds is because the slats are not completely open when raising and lowering the blind. Blinds with slats should always be in the open position before pulling on the string.
  2. Another reason the string will break is because the shade is lifted to the exact same height every time it is opened, especially with pleated and cellular shades.   
  3. Often, the shades are lifted open all the way to the top and then locked into place. The hardware, repeatedly, clamps onto the string at the same spot, which causes the string to wear through and then break.
  4. Be sure to always keep the blinds free of dust! Dust is the number one reason for gears and mechanisms malfunctioning in venetian blinds.
  5. Be sure to lubricate your tilt gears and vertical track with silicone. Once a year.
  6. When looking out of the window, venetian blind slats should never be bent or separated (while trying to peek).
