Yes where I live what you have is standard. But some come with a cover on that extra track on a fixed window. If you can find the manufactures name, you might be able to add them.

That's pretty bad standard practice, easy on the builder (less work), but a little messy on the property owner (harder to clean). I will see if there are covers available to cover the bottom or maybe all 4 sides for cosmetics. Thanks.

Re: What type of blinds is this designed for?


I just thought of this, before I purchased wood blinds for my kitchen,
I had micro mini blinds...the blades were 1/2" wide and the top track
was 1" wide.

I looked up micro mini blinds and found this...

This I believe would fit in the track. Of course you don't have to go that route,
you could you could always mount regular size blinds on the outside of
the track.

How old are these windows? These micro mini's were very
popular in the 80's and 90's ...I like mine a lot, when they were
in the open position they disappeared, thus the view was not obstructed.

Thanks. It is a brand new property built in 2018.

If you like the 1/2" micro mini blinds, order one
and try it out.
You could also research Home Depot
or lowes and see if they carry them..The mini blinds
are 1" but I don't know how big the top is?
