Hardware comes with it, no need to purchase anything else, and you can mount inside the window frame or outside on the wall, just above the window. I had three 46' window frames, for some reason, I couldn't get the blinds inside the frame so I mounted just above the window.

No. The mounting hardware is in the carton. For tools, you will need a measuring tape, pencil, maybe a punch or awl, a screw driver, and probably a drill to make pilot holes.

Kellie,

Thank you for your question. No, this particular blind will not meet your needs for a width of 45 inches. A programming error on the site has skewed the specifications for this product. We are working to have this corrected but in the meantime for the size you require I would advise ordering the 47 x 48 and having it cut down by your local Home Depot.

Hello vino blanco and thank you for your question.

Your Bali White Vinyl Blinds are made of PVC for durability and are washable. You can spot clean with a soft cloth or sponge, a mild detergent, and warm water. I suggest wiping the blinds “cross-wise,” from left to right (or right to left) to ensure that the vanes are not creased or crinkled. Blot the blinds gently and allow them to dry completely. Repeat as necessary to remove the grease.

Best wishes with this project.

I take mine down and lay them in the yard and then use 409 and a sponge to get the grime off. Then I suspend them on temporary angle brackets mounted on my side yard fence and hose them off. Let them dry for a day and they are ready to re-install. Piece of cake.

That size will need to be cut to fit, which doesn't cost you anything. Make sure you measure is accurate as there us a little error allowance built into inside mount blinds You should match their color to color source you have. Each manufacturers colors vary. If you can't go to store, ask if they can send a color sample.

Thank you for your question. The actual width of this product, brackets included, is 50 1/2 inches. For the best fit you may want to consider going to the next size up and having the shade cut down to your required width to minimize the light gap on the sides and provide the most privacy.

Give the associate at Home Depot the exact measurements of the window opening and they will cut them to fit the exact size width needed. You can remove the bottom blinds to customize the length yourself, it's very easy and listed in the instructions included.

Greetings,

My name is Tom, also known as HD116 at Home Depot's How to Community. I am here today answering a few product questions and saw yours.

I called Bali support and was surprised to find that the 23" version of this model can be cut to 16". They may look odd as the strings that support the slats will be very close to the edge, but will function.

I apologize for the delay in response and wish you the best.
