First you will need to decide if you want the shades to be inside or outside mount. An inside mount will go within a recess or framework and will highlight an attractive molding or window. Outside mounts will hang outside the opening of a recess, either on the frame or above and beyond the frame. If you outside mount, you can make a window appear larger or hide an unattractive window.

If you choose an inside mount. Measure the width in three places, the top, middle and bottom of your window. Choose the smallest measurement and round down to the nearest 1/8".
