How to remove a VELUX blind

VELUX blinds are the perfect way to add privacy and prevent excess light from entering a room, and are available in a number of different styles, colours and operations.

Whether you’re looking for a VELUX blackout blind, which completely blocks out any daylight from entering a room, a VELUX roller blind, which reduces the glare of the sun without blocking all sunlight from entering the room, or a VELUX venetian blind, which can vary the amount of sunlight that enters a room, each blind is incredibly easy to install and remove. This means that you can change the blinds in each room quickly, regardless of whether the room’s use is changing, the interior design is being updated, or the blind has simply worn out over time.

Step by step guide: How to remove a VELUX blind

Regardless of whether you’re looking for information on how to remove a VELUX roller blind, how to remove a VELUX blackout blind, or another style of VELUX roof blind, the steps are the same and really quick and easy to follow. If you’re still unsure after reading the steps outlined below, take a look at VELUX’s video guide at the bottom of this page.

Step 1

Ensure the blind has been rolled up as it normally would be when not in use.

Step 2

At each side of the window, you’ll see there are screws attaching the blind casing to the window frame. Simply unscrew these with a screwdriver.

Step 3

Now remove the sliders, then unscrew the brackets, which are situated at the bottom of the window frame. The brackets were used to hold the blind tight against the window.

Step 4

The blind should now be able to be pulled away from the top of the window frame with a click.

That’s it! the VELUX blind should now have been successfully removed.
