Questioning Your Staircase Windows?

If covering your staircase windows has you puzzled, you’re not alone. This unique set of windows is an incredible home design feature, but can be a real brain teaser to fit. To keep your home comfortable and looking its best,  light control, privacy and design need to be considered. We can help you find the best window treatments and create a happy place for your family.

All the Privacy You Need.

Sometimes your windows need privacy, sometimes they don’t. If your staircase windows are visible from the street, you may want to cover them to secure your family’s privacy. On the other hand, windows that face your own backyard may need less privacy but more light control. Every window has specific needs.

Take the staircase windows above for example, Aero Drapery & Blind designers chose to fit them with our top down bottom up window shades. These treatments allow an incredible view to the outdoors but, when in the lowered position, they prevent your home from being on display.

Which Direction Do They Face?

Before you choose window coverings, consider which direction the windows face. The position of your windows, and how they interact with the sunrise and sunset, is an important factor. If your staircase windows get sun all-day, you’ll need a treatment that prevents your home from heating up.

How Much Space Is There?

Another important consideration is square footage–and how to fit narrow staircase windows efficiently. If there’s limited space, we recommend a low-profile treatment. This product category would provide light control and privacy without taking up too much room.
