The three basic steps of blinds installation are:
- Install the mounting brackets – Mounting brackets go up first for both inside and outside mount window coverings. You’ll need a few screws, a level and a steel measuring tape to make sure the brackets are properly aligned. You may need to pre-drill depending on your window casing.
- Install your blinds or shades – Place your window covering into the mounted brackets.
- Install the valance – If your window covering comes with a valance, you should be able to install it by simply clicking it into place.
