How do I measure so for blinds so I get the right size?

Wooden Blinds: Measures for Success

To measure for wooden blinds, you must first decide whether you will give them an inside or outside mount. An inside mount needs to be measured inside the frame at the top of the window. An outside mount needs to account for the area you would like the blinds to cover. Traditionally, for purposes of light control, the blinds should overlap the casing by 2-3 inches.
