DIY Home Hacks: How to install blinds without drilling a balcony door with magnetic hooks.
Do you live or moved into a recently renovated rental building? Then you have new balcony railings, double windows and balcony doors. Isn't that great!
As you are probably aware new rules are in place and should be followed.
New rules: NO DRILLING or MODIFICATIONS allowed on new window frames and doors.

On this post I am going to focus on how to install a window covering solution to metal balcony doors. It requires NO drilling on them, adds privacy, style and it is more affordable than purchasing expensive magnetic blinds. Let's keep the cost down!

MATERIALS:
  • 2 Magnetic hooks (find them at various hardware stores or online)
  • Drill
  • Cordless pleated blind (pull or tilt)
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Measure your balcony door window and find a blind that fits
  2. Measure and place one magnetic hook on each side of the top of the balcony door window
  3. Place the blind headrail back against magnetic hooks and see where they meet
  4. Then make two marks on the back of the blind headrail 
  5. Using the drill make two holes on these marks 
  6. Carefully pass the magnetic hooks through the holes on the blind headrail 
  7. Hang your blind. That's it!
We chose a plain colour blind but you can find them in so many colours and prints.
Enjoy your new DIY metal balcony door window treatment!
