All of the blinds use a head rail that mounts inside the window casing for a uniform, snug fit to the window. The process for installing Budget Blinds signature series blinds does not differ from installing horizontal slatted blinds.

Measure the inside diameter of the window casing with a tape measure and double check the blind to ensure it will fit inside the casing. The blind should be approximately 1/2 to 1 inch smaller than the width of the window casing.
Place the left side bracket in the upper left corner of the window casing, with the mounting brackets facing the wood frame around the window. Mark the holes for the mounting bracket onto the wood trim. Duplicate the process for the right side of the window.
Drill the mounting holes into the window casing with a hand drill and a drill bit that measures half the diameter of the screws supplied with the bracket kit.
Place the bracket against the window casing and then secure the bracket with the supplied screws and a screwdriver. Duplicate the process with both brackets.
Snap the head rail into the mounting brackets. In some cases, the brackets will have front covers that slide into the bracket to retain the head rail.
