The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the home, so you need to choose window treatments that can stand up to all the daily wear and tear. With stylish kitchen window treatments, you can create a relaxing and inviting space that your family will love.
Depending on your needs, kitchen window treatments can be made of a variety of materials and styles to suit any design vision. From woven wood shades to roller shades, there are many options to choose from.
If you have a small kitchen, you may wish to consider light colors or sheer fabrics to help make the room feel bigger and brighter. Alternatively, you can opt for bamboo shades that are a popular choice for their natural appeal and ability to block out light.
To keep the area free of grease spots and food stains, you may prefer to go with fabric shades that are easy to clean and come in a wide range of color and pattern options. You can also look into Roman shades that come in a variety of performance fabric options to complement your decor.
You can even use a blinds or shutter system that is motorized or automated for added convenience. This makes it easier to open and close the kitchen window treatments as needed, especially when there is a lot of activity in the room.
For a kitchen that faces a street or another public space, you need to ensure that the window treatments you choose provide privacy while still allowing the natural light into the room. The easiest way to accomplish this is with a cellular or a roller shade that blocks out the sunlight and allows you to control the amount of light coming into your kitchen.
If your kitchen windows are situated in a splash zone, you will need to look for kitchen window treatments that are water-resistant and easy to clean. You can easily wipe down faux wood blinds, shutters or vinyl roller shades with a damp cloth.
Besides function, you should also choose kitchen window treatments that are durable and offer privacy. For this reason, you should consider a fabric or vinyl blind or shade that is easy to clean and offers privacy while blocking out the sun.
Your choices will depend on what you want your kitchen to look like, as well as the needs of your family and cooking activities. You can ask your Hunter Douglas expert for advice on which kitchen window treatments will best fit your needs and taste.
Are you a gourmet chef who creates a lot of steam and heat during your culinary endeavors? If so, you’ll need a kitchen window treatment that can handle the heavy exposure to moisture and humidity. Faux wood blinds, shutters or washable cafe curtains are a good option.
A good place to start is by considering how often you cook in your kitchen. If you’re a more casual eater, you may not need a lot of privacy in the kitchen, but you can still benefit from an easy-to-clean shade or a sheer to let natural light in and keep the area from getting too dark.
