Rolling up or taking down your blinds might seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite easy! Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to do it in no time.
The first step is to locate the control cords or chains that are attached to your blinds. They should be located at one end of the blinds and will look like a small string or chain.
Once you’ve located the cords, you’ll need to pull them in order to roll up or take down the blinds. To roll up the blinds, simply pull down on both cords until they meet in the middle of your window. As you do this, the blinds will start rolling themselves up from bottom to top. To take them down, simply reverse this process by pulling both cords up until they meet in the middle of your window again. The blinds will then slowly unroll themselves downwards.
Start by taking down the valance, if your blinds have one

After unscrewing the brackets, it is time to remove the lift cords that have been connecting them. Make sure you handle the cords carefully to avoid tangles and knots.
