Your kitchen is a bustling hub of activity. It’s where you start every morning with a fresh cup of coffee, where you cook your favorite meals, and where you talk about the day with your family. If your countertops, appliances, and cabinets are neutral, a unique window treatment can make a decorative statement and also serve a purpose. When choosing a kitchen window treatment, think about the style, material, and function. Read on and view our gallery to help choose the best window treatment for your kitchen!
Faux Wood Blinds
If you have a bright, sunny kitchen with plenty of natural light, consider installing faux wood blinds. Too much direct sunlight can impact the interior temperature of your kitchen, as well as fade your wood floors and cabinets. Faux wood blinds are easy to clean with soapy water or dust cloths, and also allow you to control the amount of sunlight entering your kitchen.
We recommend staying away from wood blinds in the kitchen. Wood blinds could warp or crack with high heat and humidity changes. Plus, they can't be wiped down with soapy water like faux wood.
Making breakfast in your pajamas on a lazy Sunday morning is a lovely way to start the day – but not if your neighbors can see directly into your kitchen! Install mini-blinds for quick access to privacy. Mini-blinds are affordable, sturdy, and fit both traditional and contemporary styles. These fashionable materials allow some sunlight into the room while blocking outside views into your kitchen.
Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades are a popular kitchen choice. They provide texture and eclectic style, but similar to Roman Shades and Cellular Shades, they should be kept out of your splash zone to keep them clean and fresh.
Roman shades tend to offer the most ornate, elegant look, making them ideal for traditional homes, though you can find modern patterns and styles too. However, to utilize Roman shades made of soft materials, they'll have to be away from direct cooking areas and exposure to steam and water.
