Hanging roman blinds on PVC windows

I've taken off an old blind for the windows to be changed to pvc and now of course, I cannot drill into the off to re hang them, or can I?

In the meantime, I've gone and bought another set of Roman blinds for a different room, but the problem still applies. What should I do?

you should be able to fit them to the "ceiling" bit of the recess instead.

Thanks! Should I need to seek out new fixings? B&Q ?

Yeah I agree, fix to ceiling if you can. I drilled into the frame once, gush of air came out, broke the seal blush

what fixings came with the blind?

usually it's a cube or L shape so you have the option of screwing it to the window or ceiling, or sometimes the sides

like this with screw holes in all sides.

Tondelay thanks - I'll need new fixings for old blind so your pic is v helpful. DH forgot to remove old fixings when the lads replaced our windows ~despite lots of reminding~
