Choose which side of the window treatment should have the lift control, which could be a cord or a cord loop. Think about the placement of the window and any furniture or obstacles in the room, and choose the side that's most accessible.
For a single blind: Lift control can be positioned on the left or right.
For multiple blinds on one headrail: Lift controls must be positioned to the outside.
