How to Install Window Blinds. If your new window treatments include blinds, save the
hefty installation fee by hanging them yourself. You will need A stepladder A tape measure
A pencil New blinds A drill Screws (which should be included in your set) A screwdriver
and some wax or a candle. Step 1. Decide whether you want to mount the blinds on the inside
or outside of the window frame. It's a matter of personal preference. Will they fit flush
between the inside edges of the window frame and just cover the glass — or will they
cover the entire window itself and extend all the way to the outer edges of the frame?
Step 2. Measure the window frame both horizontally and vertically so you know what size blinds
you need. Your measurements will determine both the length of the head rail — the long
horizontal piece that the blinds drop from — and how far down your new blinds should
fall. Step 3. Once you pick out blinds, have the store cut them to size. Step 4. Read the
manufacturer's instructions before you begin installation, so you understand any unique
elements of the blinds you chose. Step 5. Find the end brackets that came with your
blinds. They will anchor the ends of the head rail. Mark the window frame where the brackets
will be installed. Make sure they are evenly spaced from the sides of the frame and — if
they're within the frame — from the face of the window. If you're mounting the blinds
inside the window frame, mark the end brackets at least an inch and a quarter from the face
of the glass so the blinds won't touch it. Step 6. Keeping in line with your earlier
marks, pencil in the location of the support brackets, which will be spaced evenly along
the head rail and help hold it up. How many brackets you need depends on the length of
your blinds. Step 7. Hold the brackets up to the frame to mark exactly where the screws
should go, and use an electric drill to create holes for attaching them. Use a drill bit
slightly smaller than your screws. Step 8. Using your guide holes, screw in one bracket
at a time by hand. It is critical that the brackets are well aligned so that the blinds
will rise and fall evenly. Rubbing wax on the screws before you install the brackets
will make them screw in more smoothly. A candle works well. Step 9. Consult your manual for
the final directions on how to attach the blinds. In many cases, you will insert each
side of the head rail into the appropriate end bracket and snap it closed. Step 10. Look
for a small plastic spinning mechanism sticking out of one side of the head rail. The tilt
wand included with your blinds has tiny hooks attached to one end that will easily latch
onto this mechanism, allowing you to open and close the blinds. Step 11. Hang on to
the instructions as well as any extra pieces of equipment that came with your blinds. You
might need them if you ever want to reinstall your blinds. Did you know The early Egyptians
tied together reeds from the Nile River to create an early version of window blinds.
