How To Cut Faux Wood Blinds That Are Too Wide

When purchasing faux wood blinds, nothing beats a truly custom product. Certain big box stores may offer to cut down or trim preexisting wood blinds to size, but it will come at the cost of functionality and style – especially with elegant faux woods. While it is technically possible to cut faux wood blinds apart and hang the remains, we strongly suggest getting something that fits perfectly on the first try. Cutting down your existing faux woods requires more precise measurement and planning than it takes to order a whole new treatment. Even if done correctly, the lift system behind your covering will probably be off-centered and may not work properly. These modifications will also, usually, void the warranty.
