Do you have a narrow window or two that needs a wood or faux wood blind? If your window is least 12" wide, then no problem. A standard wood or faux wood blind can be fabricated for your opening. This means that the blind will have both a tilt mechanism and a lift function within the blind.
However, if your sidelight-type windows are between 8"-12" wide, then special considerations must be made. These type of windows are often next to an entry door. For this application, a wood or faux wood blind can still be fabricated, but will only have a tilt mechanism mounted in the center of the blind with no lift function. This solution works well as these long narrow windows generally do not open - and as such lifting the blind is something that is never done. Actually, isn't this true for most of the wood and faux wood blinds in your space?
If you do need to access the window for cleaning, simply lift the blind from the bottom and let the slats gather, or just carefully remove the blind from the brackets and then replace when done.
If your window is narrower than 8", then a wood or faux wood blind option might be harder to find. However, mounting something outside mount that is wider than 8" is often a possibility.
