Hey Cheriehennen,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


First off, you can shorten your mini-blinds once they are installed. Only after this will they be easier to shorten.
Once this is done, you will see two 'buttons' that hold the blind slats into place onto the bottom rail. Use a flathead screwdriver to pop these buttons out.


Once the buttons are removed, the bottom rail will be loosened. Determine how many slats need to be removed. Next,  cut the threads about 1-2 inches below the last slat you'll want to keep.


Take the bottom rail and remove the cut threads and slats that aren't needed. Discard the unwanted slats but use the bottom rail and place the threads still on the blinds and tie them off. Make sure the buttons go back into them, which will secure the threads into place.


And that is how you successfully shorten mini-blinds. If you have any further questions about blinds or decor please let us know.
