Measuring and Installing Window Blinds

 

When Mounting Inside the Window Frame:

Step 1:

Check the depth requirements for your window blinds and ensure your windows can house the depth of the blinds. Depth requirements can be found listed in the product description. If your window cannot support the depth, consider mounting the blinds outside of the window frame.

Step 2:

Measure the top, middle, and bottom widths of your window opening inside the window frame horizontally and take note of the smallest measurement. Provide an exact measurement and do not measure for clearance, or the small gap between the edge of the window blinds and window opening to prevent rubbing, as the blinds will be cut with clearance already accounted for by the manufacturer.

Step 3:

Measure the height of your window opening on the left and right sides and also down the center. Take note of the largest measurement.

Step 4:

Once you have the blinds, follow the bracket installation instructions and then place the head rail of the blinds into the brackets, which will lock into place. Attach the decorative valance and adjusting wand.

 


 

When Mounting Outside the Window Frame:

Step 1:

Measure the height of your window opening from the top of the casing to the bottom on the left and right sides and also down the center. Take note of the largest measurement. Blinds will be cut to your exact specifications, so make sure to add additional height increments for bracket mounting (two to three inches) and provide the exact height measurement for your blind height preferences.

Add additional width increments for extra light blockage and provide the exact height measurement for your blind width preferences.
