Need window covering ideas for back door and side windows.

This door leads to the patio. Where should the top of each treatment be placed? Help !

If you are using panels with a rod... place them at ceiling height.

For the door, you could use spring tension rods top and bottom. For the windows, floor to ceiling!

I would put valances in this space. I would place the top of the three valances half way between the top of the window and the ceiling. There is a valance kit made especially for doors - so that the valance actually moves with the door when it opens so it does not interfere with the operation of the door and when closed it will look like a seamless valance across the bay.

Soft romans or valances. Country Curtains has a nice selection. I've used their Colebrook scallop on French doors with great success, and they have matching panels if you like them. These were metal doors and we used magnetic blinds and rod installations. We just had to beef up the power on the magnets a bit.

You have a tight space. I don't think you want a bunch of fabric there. Jeanne's suggestion above is perfect for your space--and will keep all the treatments at the same height. This is a custom window treatment option--the valance is custom made wtih the kit.
Another simple option would be woven wood shades if you need privacy.

I'm not sure if those are honeycomb (cellular) shades now. They can be ordered a bit tighter to the trim, at least on that shade under the arch. We have half round arch shades available if you are looking to cover that portion of the window. http://cellularwindowshades.com/starburst-arch-shades.html That moving valance bracket is neat. I've never seen such an animal myself!

If you like fabric, you could do roman shades inset in the windows & attached to the door. Keeps full function, adds fashion and color, all without added bulk. I would be happy to discuss your project further with you.

If you go with roman shades or any other option that is mounted inside the two windows and on the french doors, the mounting height will be lower on the french door than it will be on the two flanking windows. One way to alleviate that is to always keep the shades lowered (or raised) to the same height. That way your eye will see the one line that is straight and not notice that the upper line is off. Or mount valances as high as possible on the wall and have the fabric stop just above the door opening so that it won't catch when the door is in motion. Then mount on the wall, behind the valances, a roller shade or a honeycomb: anything with a short stack that will be completely hidden when not in use.
