Types Of Window Treatment

Blinds: They are one of the more basic window treatment options available in the designer market. Mostly vinyl blinds as the default window treatment in many homes or apartments. Frequently blinks look simple, but it gives a specified amount of elegance to the room.

Shades: Want to use window treatments that are as unobtrusive as possible? Then consider the use of shades for your windows. When closed, these shades don’t detract from your interior design due to its subtle look and will help to diffuse sunlight without completely blocking it.

Shutters: The significant difference between curtains and other window treatments is that they have a more architectural look. Curtains tend to look like they were a part of the home, and not it shows like an added one. More protection and security are the specialty of shutters.

Treatments For Doors With Half Window

A micro blind is a product that I would typically sell for this type of door window. The slats would be tempered aluminum 1/2 inch wide as compared to a standard mini blind that is 1 inch wide. The smaller slats look sleek on a small window. Tempered aluminum has a spring and is resistant to kinking. The slated product allows an easy outside view.

Be aware of the following when sizing. The glass panel is a raised frame. The headrail of the blind needs to fit above the panel frame and go a little bit below. The width of the blind needs to be a little wider than the frame edges to provide privacy and light block. The actual blind size is larger than the window frame, and it should be there as an outside mount. Since the structure raises from the door surface, mounting blocks need to go behind the installation brackets for the blind to hang straight. The bottom should be with hold down brackets. Prongs go into the bottom rail on each side and keep the blind from flopping around.

The last thing is the controls. There are tilt and a lift on a micro blind. You need to Order both on the side that is away from the doorknob. In this case, order right/right controls. The wand tilt and lift cord will be out of the way when opening and closing.

Use caution when installing as this is a metal door. Holes can not get repairing! Measure accurately, mark all drill locations, and double-check.
