How to Choose Kitchen Curtains
Curtains are a quick, relatively easy way to dress your kitchen windows. Start your search by asking yourself a few questions. The process will go much more smoothly, and youíll be happier with the result.
Whatís my style?
Is yours a homey country kitchen? A luxurious Tuscan style? Or a sleek, modern space fit for a professional chef? Considering the personality of your kitchen will help you select the style of curtain that will work best.
What are my colors?
Look around: What is the predominant color? What are the accent colors? You should consider picking up an accent color with your curtains if the predominant color is a wall color. You donít want your new window coverings to blend into the wall. A pattern that incorporates one or more of the colors in your room will work as well. Selecting from a collection of colorful print style curtains
may be a good place to start for multi colored options.
What do you want them to do?
If you want to block light, you have to choose a color and fabric that accomplish that objective. A set of white curtainsmay look lovely, but they probably wonít do the job. If your kitchen gets cold or drafty in the winter, you might want to consider insulating curtains. You also need to think about where your windows are and how easily they are accessed if you want to be able to open and close the curtains regularly.
