What are the most popular styles of blinds in Coeur d'Alene?

Here are the most popular styles of window treatments in the Coeur d'Alene area, along with some of their features and benefits:

Motorized Blinds

Local residents and business owners love Motorized Blinds, Shades and Screens for many reasons. Not the least of which is the ability to control light and privacy for hard-to-reach window treatments. But the obvious, most sought after benefit is the ability to integrate your window coverings into your Smart Home – controlling your blinds with ease from a remote or your smart phone, from anywhere in the world.

Cellular (Honeycomb) Shades

Also referred to as Honeycomb Shades or Cellular Blinds, “Cellulars”, are also quite popular. Cellular blinds offer the best insulating benefit of various window treatment styles, and can be a good option for “black out” or room darkening applications. Because they can filter light so well, Cellular Shades are also a great protection against harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture and floors from fading. One popular option is “Top Down Bottom Up”, allowing you to lower the top of the blind for more light and view, while still maintaining your privacy.


Whether you call them Interior Shutters, Plantation Shutters or just “Shutters”, these window treatments are popular in the Coeur d’Alene area. Our shutters can fit just about any window size and shape – including custom arches and angled windows and can be motorized, adding another level of convenience. Shutters add a look to Coeur d’Alene homes and businesses that can’t be obtained by any other type of window treatment.


Roman shades, cellular shades, sheer shades, solar shades and even woven wood or grass shades are all considered “window shades“. Because of the wide range of styles and functions, these window treatments are also quite popular in the Coeur d’Alene area. Whether you’re wanting to darken a room or lightly filter the sun’s rays, there is a window shade that can do the job beautifully.

Sheer Shades

When you have views as beautiful as we do in the Inland Northwest, you definitely want to take full advantage.  Sheer Shades are a great choice for homes in our area, as they help filter light and gain privacy when you need it, while allowing you to enjoy your view. Blinds Etc is proud to feature the widest selection of sheer shadings from Hunter Douglas, Norman, Graber, Comfortex and Skandia.


There are a lot of styles of “Blinds” including vertical blinds, aluminum blinds “Venetian” blinds, wood blinds, faux wood blinds and more. Typically, a blind has slats that open and close, whether vertical or horizontal. You can control the amount of light filtration, privacy and how much view you want by how much you open and close your blinds. Motorization is quite popular with blinds in our area as it takes control to a whole new level for your smart home or office.

Custom Drapery & Curtains

Custom Drapes or Curtains are perfect for our region’s distinctive homes and offices. Draperies offer a timeless look that can be combined with horizontal blinds, vertical blinds, cellular shades and roll screens to pull every part of your room’s design together.  They’re excellent for adding privacy and even a layer of insulation to your windows as well.  Blinds Etc., is pleased to offer custom curtains to the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas from premiere manufacturers right here in the U.S.A.
