Should blinds rest on window sill? In most cases blinds look and work the best when they rest on the window sill. No one is ever going to notice extra 1/2" of length and this keeps them from blowing in a slight breeze. If you prefer for the blinds not to touch the windowsill, you should deduct-1/4".

Should blinds go inside or outside window frame? Inside mounted blinds and shades will give you the cleanest look. That is because they fit inside the window frame, and can be mounted as deep or as shallow as you like. Outside mounted blinds and shades give the flexibility of choosing almost any window covering for anysituation.
