Hello twostorytrouble.  Welcome to the community.


Mini blinds.


The proper way to measure inside mount mini blinds, is to measure the window jamb or the inside of the window frame that butts up against the actual window sash.  I am including installation instructions so you will have a reference of where they are mounted.  A mini blind should be ½” narrower than your opening.  That will give you a ¼” on each side for your brackets and the blinds will not get caught on the window frame sides. Look at the package carefully because if it shows it is a 35" wide x 72" high, the actual width may reduced by that 1/2"already be 34 1/2". 


If this does not answer your question please let me know.
