Whether you’ve just remodeled, completed a new build, or purchased your first home, you want window treatments that serve a purpose and look great while doing it. We’re here to help you choose the window treatments that will best serve the form and function you’re looking for.
Issues to Consider
As with all purchases for your home, you’ll need to take some things into consideration when purchasing window treatments. First, identify the issues in your kitchen that you’ll need your window coverings to address. Are your windows going to be splashed by water? Will they be exposed to steam and food splatter? If either of those is the case, consider a window treatment that is water-resistant and easy to clean. Also, think of how accessible your kitchen window is. Will they be easy to reach when you want to adjust your shades?
Top Treatments to Consider
If your kitchen has an all-white or neutral color palette, Roman shades are an extra easy way to work color into the room. They add a classic pop of color, and their fabric structure adds an element of softness among the hard angles of kitchen appliances. They are easy to fit into any decor style with the wide variety of colors and patterns available. The only caveat to Roman shades is that fabric is susceptible to staining and will hold on to cooking odors. If your heart is set on Roman shades, be prepared to clean them frequently.
Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades add natural texture and organic touch to your kitchen. Use them to make your windows stand out without having to use elaborate window coverings. Woven woods offer visual interest and texture without taking center stage. They are less susceptible to food stains, but frequent exposure to moisture can be problematic and cause warping.
Faux Wood Blinds
You really can’t go wrong with faux wood blinds in your kitchen. They give your windows a polished appearance without having to make any bold design statements. Faux wood is classic but never outdated. It is also easy to clean and impervious to moisture.
Roller shades are a great option for modern decor styles or those who enjoy clean, simple lines in a design. They are also particularly good for small windows as they can be mounted inside the frame and nearly disappear into the headrail when rolled up. While these shades are available in a variety of materials, consider vinyl for ease of upkeep in the kitchen.
