Keeping this in view, can you screw into vinyl window frames?
If you have vinyl windows, you won't be able to screw the brackets directly into the vinyl channel that holds the window. The vinyl is not strong enough to hold the weight of the blinds. Fix the brackets to the top or sides of the inside opening or install them outside the opening.
Subsequently, question is, should blinds be inside the window frame? Let me change that right now. 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. You just mount the brackets outside of the window frame and hang your blinds or shades so they extend past the frame.
Additionally, can I drill into UPVC window frames?
The idea of drilling into your UPVC frames might sound terrifying but if you take care in doing so there's nothing to worry about. The main thing to avoid is the glass itself as if you can imagine. Using a 3mm drill bit, drill directly into the mark you have created on the frame.
How far should Window blinds be from window?
Use a tape measure and a pencil to mark 1 1/4 inches away from the window to keep the blinds from touching the glass when hung.
