Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver

  • Ladder (optional)


If you need to use a ladder, recruit a helper to whom you can hand off each piece as you remove it. This will help you work on the ladder more safely.

Velux produces blinds to fit its roof windows. Unlike the company's windows themselves, the blinds don't need to be professionally installed and can be removed ease. Velux regularly updates its blind selection. This means that if you get bored with the design you have, you can easily take it down and replace it without any trouble.


Step 1

Roll up your Velux blind as usual.
