Window treatments for people who need to cover very narrow windows.
Window Blinds to Fit Narrow Windows
Very narrow windows are often built next to the front door of a home. They’re commonly known as “sidelights.” Some homes use frosted glass, some use curtains, and some use blinds.
Most homeowners or renters typically need only one blind to cover their sidelight, but some doors are made with 2 sidelights. There are also doors – and double doors with glass lights which often need to be covered for privacy.

Why Are Smaller (or Narrower) Blinds More Expensive Than Some Larger Sizes?
There are a few reasons why smaller (narrower and/or shorter) blinds are more expensive than some of their larger counterparts.
- Narrow window blinds are a specialty item. It’s much more common for people to order custom blinds for their very narrow windows. Custome-made blinds are drastically more expensive.
- They are a low-volume seller. A typical home has at least a dozen (and often) several dozen windows. But a home that needs a blind that’s less than 20″ wide is very rare. We need to order a large quantity of each size and color blind when we make an order with the factory. This means we have to sit on the inventory for a long time. Inventory sitting on a shelf is costly. Keeping a broad range of sizes means we have larger warehouse space and more “money” sitting on shelves.
- They cost less in terms of material, but the assembly takes the same amount of time in production. The labor required to make smaller blinds is just as much as it is to make larger blinds.
