How to Install Blinds or Shades

1
Installing Vertical Blinds - Inside Mount

Both inside and outside mounted blinds and shades have mounting brackets included. The first step in installing any window treatment is to secure these brackets in place.  Be sure your brackets are even before screwing them in completely. Pre-drilling with an electric screwdriver or drill is recommended for an easier installation process.
