Window coverings play a vital role in enhancing the beauty and functionality of your home. They offer privacy, control the amount of natural light, and protect your interiors from harsh UV. However, while choosing the perfect blinds or curtains, some windows are often overlooked. At Coeur Window Coverings, we serve Spokane and North Idaho and understand the importance of every window in your home. In this blog post, we will discuss the most commonly overlooked windows when ordering window coverings and provide guidance on making the best choices for them.


Transom Windows

Transom windows are those narrow, horizontal windows located above doorways or other windows. We also see these increasingly in bedrooms and they are often located in a hard-to-reach area above the bed headboard. While they may not be the focal point of your room, they can greatly benefit from window coverings, especially when the sun rises as early as 5:30am during our summer months. To maintain a cohesive look in your space, consider selecting motorized window coverings that match the treatment on the primary windows in the room.

Sidelight Windows


Sidelight windows are often found flanking entry doors. Neglecting these windows may lead to privacy and security concerns. Opt for stylish yet functional window coverings, such as cellular shades or custom-designed shutters, to protect your privacy while adding a touch of elegance to your home's entrance.

"When measuring a new home it's our policy to measure all windows regardless of whether the homeowner wants them covered. We do this because most customers end up reaching back to us to finish the rest of their windows." – Dan White (President of Coeur Window Coverings)

Frosted Bathroom Windows

Privacy is essential in bathrooms which is why many North Idaho homeowners overlook window treatments when they have frosted glass here. "We already have privacy. Why would we add the redundancy of blinds?

Two reasons:

Light control - morning light can be blinding coming through frosted glass and create a harsh lighting environment that makes it difficult to look in the mirror.

Design - dressing your windows can make your bathroom space more relaxing and inviting.

We typically recommend choosing moisture-resistant materials such as faux wood blinds, or shutters in bathrooms, however, don't rule out fabric window coverings.

Walk - In Closets

Walk-in closets often have small windows that are easily overlooked. To create a sense of luxury and organization in your closet, consider window coverings that match the overall aesthetic of the room. Coeur Window Coverings offers a range of options, from roman shades to roller shades, to give your walk-in closet a polished look.

Garage Windows

Garage windows are frequently forgotten, but they can contribute to the overall appearance of your home's exterior and help protect your valuables. Choose durable, weather-resistant window coverings that provide security and style for your garage.
