Do It Yourself
  1. Drill the top screw into wall where you want to install the Window Blind. Be sure to tighten firmly since the top screw holds the majority of the weight of the Window Blind. Then drill one screw into the lower hole of each bracket.
  2. View off the Window Blind brackets after they are installed.
  3. Install head rail. Place the front edge of track into the front edge of mounting brackets as shown then snap the back side of head rail into place. Make sure it clicks.

1) Inside or Recess Mount (Ceiling Mount)

  • Measure the width inside the window opening.
  • Measure the height inside the window opening.
  • Do not make any deduction.
  • Never measure existing blinds.
  • Double check your measurements.
  • Record string position.
REASON FOR CHOOSING INSIDE MOUNT

Clean Look

  • Inside-mount treatments are installed inside the window casing, showcasing attractive window trim.
  • The window opening frames the treatment for a finished, clean appearance.

Allow Sill Space on Deep Windows

  • In some deep-set windows, window treatment can be installed to allow plants or other items to be placed in front of the window on the sill.
LIMITATION OF THE INSIDE MOUNT

Light Gaps

  • A small deduction in the width and/or length is taken at the manufacturer to allow for proper operating clearance, and this causes a small gap on each side of the window treatment, affecting the window treatment’s ability to darken a room.

Obstructed View

  • The stack (compressed portion of the window treatment when fully raised) will obstruct part of the view from the window.
  • The amount of stack varies by a product.

Architectural Obstacles

  • Obstacles such as handles and cranks can interfere with the operation of Inside-mount treatments.

2) Outside or Relief Mount (Wall Mount)

  • Measure the width across the window. Typically add at least 3cm each sides.
  • Measure the height of the area where you want the blind to cover. Typically add at least 5cm at the top and 5cm at the bottom.
  • Double check your measurements.
  • Record string position.
REASON FOR CHOOSING OUTSIDE MOUNT

Improve Privacy and Light Control 

  • Light gaps on the side of the window treatment can be substantially diminished or eliminated.Fewer Installation Limitations
  • Outside-mount window treatment are ideal for covering non-square windows.
  • Inside-mount window treatment are installed higher than the window opening for an unobstructed view when fully raised.

Architectural Obstacles 

  • Outside mount window treatment can clear obstacles like handles and cranks.

Enlarge the look of a small window 

  • Increase overlap above and below or to each side of the window.

Hide window trim

  • Outside mount treatments can easily hide unattractive window trim.
