'First decide if you want a track or a pole 'It's best to use a metal tape measure as it will be more accurate 'Your track or pole should be placed approximately 15cm (6") above your window top and should be wider than your window by approximately 15-20cm (6-8") 'Measure the width of your track or pole excluding the finials (decorative endings on poles). Do not measure the window 'Add an extra 2.5cm (1") to your track/pole measurement.

When buying, it is recommended to give preference to durability and the material of the blinds. Also check for the proper functioning of the cord to roll up the blinds. When closed, the blinds must also shut out the light completely. With the variety of options available in the market, you are sure to find the one you are looking for.
Sometimes, they become unbalanced forming odd angles. For such problems, just remove the blinds from their place, put a rod around the tilts, and try to straighten out the pull strings around a flywheel. Repeat this procedure until they return to their normal state. If this straightening process fails, then you have no other option than to reinstall the head rails.
Swing arm curtain rods are very handy when used for French doors, large or small windows in a house, caf style windows, etc. The rod is mounted on either the inside of a window frame or on a wall adjacent to a window. This type of a setup makes it convenient to swing rather than sliding it every single time along the rod.
