Options For Dressing Your Kitchen Windows
Finding a kitchen window treatment can be tricky because conditions in the room can be hard on fabric. Heat, humidity and cooking residue can take their toll. But there are several window treatment options work well in the kitchen.
Shades are a natural solution for the kitchen because they can be rolled up to enjoy the view and let light in and can be rolled down for privacy and light control. Shades fit right into the window, safely out of the way of splashing water and other hazards.
There are several different kinds of shades. Roller shades are usually inexpensive and are ideal for blocking or filtering light. Roman shades are made from fabric. They give a tailored look but allow you a lot of freedom for color and pattern. Shades made from woods like bamboo and other natural materials hold up well in the kitchen and give a rustic, textured look.
Valances can be used with shades or by themselves to dress up a window. If privacy is not a concern, they're a good choice because they stay well out of the way of cooking surfaces and sinks.
Blinds can be made of metal, plastic or wood. They are relatively easy to clean and can be opened or closed to control light and privacy. Blinds are neat and tidy looking and almost disappear when raised.
This casual window treatment gives the best of both worlds, retaining privacy and letting in plenty of light.
Kitchen Curtain Tips
Kitchens pose some particular challenges when choosing window decor. A few things need to be considered when selecting kitchen curtains.
Kitchen curtains need to be fire resistant, water resistant, and child-safe if there are kids in the house. Tassels, fringe, and other details should stay well away from stoves and ovens.
Washable fabrics are a must in a kitchen. Curtains can be subject to splashes, high moisture, and, over time, oils and cooking smells. Panels you can simply throw in the washing machine will save you time, money, and aggravation in the long run.
If you plan on opening and closing your curtains often, you should be mindful of where they are. Placing them above a stove may make it dangerous, above a sink may be inconvenient. In these cases, you might consider a kitchen window treatment that doesn't open and close.
Coordination With Other Treatments
If your kitchen opens to another room, like a family room, make sure that your curtains coordinate with the window treatments in the other space. A similar rule applies if your kitchen windows face the street: Be sure that look of all of the windows at the front of the house look the same from outside. If you have curtains at all the other windows, you don't want a shade on your street-facing kitchen window.
