Introduzione

If your beautiful set of blinds has a broken slat or multiple broken slats, messing up the decorum of your house, use this guide to restore your blinds back to new. Window blinds are used to determine how much light to let in or keep out of your house all whilst adding an added barrier of protection from the outside world.

Before using this guide, determine how many replacement slats you have. Typically, each set of blinds comes with multiple unused replacements that reside near its bottom rail. Next, determine which blind slats need replacing, starting at the highest one. Step 3 will require you to start at the highest damaged slat as starting anywhere else will result in extra work for you.
