There is a range of properties which require blinds that you don’t drill into the walls or window recess. Whether those properties are rented homes, or listed buildings, they will still require blinds to help maintain privacy and manage external light. Luckily, no drill blinds can fill that gap!

What are no drill blinds?

Whether it’s our innovative designer no drill roller blinds, or our range of perfect fit blinds, no drill blinds are an increasingly popular and hassle-free solution to modern interior design challenges. Offering both style and simplicity, no drill blinds are designed to achieve fast installation, eliminating the need for tools, DIY skills, or unnecessary mess.

With the rise in home rentals, no drill blinds are also the best choice for those that want the same level of beauty and functionality of traditional blinds, but without having to put holes in the walls.

Perfect fit no drill blinds

Our range of perfect fit blinds are also classed as no drill blinds, and are made using a special frame that allows them to clip easily into a uPVC window frame. No drills, no fuss, just clip them in place.

What’s more, by fitting into the window or door frame, they move as a part of it making them perfect for windows and doors alike. Beyond the uPVC windows of rented and listed buildings, perfect fit blinds are a great option for conservatories and patio doors.

Designer no drill blinds

Our designer no drill blinds are made using a sophisticated heading with discreet hinges at either end. These hinges unfold to apply compression against the recess wall and firmly hold the blind in place. This pressure, which can be manually adjusted to ensure a flush finish, eliminates the need for any screws or other fixings that cause holes and unnecessary damage to your walls.

Not only that, but due to the product’s simplicity, a designer no drill blind can be fitted in just minutes. Simply select the designer no drill option in your chosen roller blind product where available.

(Also known as perfect fit blinds)


How do no drill blinds work?

No drill blinds, also known as “no-tools blinds” or “perfect fit blinds”, are a type of window treatment that can be installed without the need for drilling holes or using traditional mounting brackets. Instead, they utilise alternative methods to securely attach the blinds within the window recess, or to the window frame or glass.

How do you hang blinds without putting holes in the wall?

With no drill blinds there is no need for drills or screws. Once your no drill blind arrives, simply clip it into position within the window’s frame if it is perfect fit, or within the window recess for a designer no drill roller blind, and enjoy the benefits of improved light management and privacy.

Can no drill blinds be used on any window?

No drill perfect fit blinds can only be fitted to uPVC windows and doors, including french doors. They aren’t suitable for sliding or bi-fold doors. You can learn more about no drill blinds and how easy they are to fit in our buyers’ guide.

How are the brackets for no drill blinds fitted?

There are no brackets required for no drill blinds. No drill blinds are made using specialist frames and headrails which either connect to the window by clipping into the uPVC around the glass, or by compressing against the recess wall.
