  • The first thing that you need to do to measure the windows that you want to use them on. If you are going to hang them outside of the frame of the window than you need to measure the width of the inside of the frame and the length. If they are going to be over the frame than it is up to you how long you would like them to be.
  • Make sure that the Venetian blinds that you purchase are the right size for the window. The majority of them will come in specific sizes that might be different by only an inch or two.
  • When you bring it home the first thing you will need to do it remove the mounting brackets and the screws that come with the kit and blinds. Use an electric screwdriver to mount the bracket inside of the window frame if you wish for them to sit inside of the frame.
  • Next you will need to place the blinds inside of the bracket and attach the caps. This will keep the blinds from sliding out when you are trying to open or close them.
  • If the blinds are installed over the window frame you will need to mount the brackets onto the window frame and right above the top of the window. Make sure that they are spaced evenly apart.
