    Take them back and have them cut them. Or install on the window frame rather than inside the window.

    Yup, that's what I would do. And, they are pretty easy to shorten. And, you can use the left over slats to write on and put in the garden so you know what is planted where:)

    Hi Shar,
    The only thing you could do so that they fit correctly and look good would be to bring them to a place that trims blinds, if there isn't a place like that near you, your best bet would be to return the ones you bought and buy the correct size.

    You can either trim the excess off with special cutters or you can just install them to cover the outside frame.

    go back where you bought them and have them cut to size.

    I like Windex. But the main component is a soft dishcloth or cloth diaper. Try to keep the cloth for only stainless steel. Best wishes ☺️

    You can either exchange them, have them cut down (most stores where you purchased them do this for free) or use an outside mount to install them. This may help:
