Window Covering Ideas for Kitchens

Kitchen Window CoveringsYour kitchen is the heart of the house, bringing family and friends together. Most people also spend a great deal of time in the kitchen, making it one of the most used rooms in the house. The functional use of your kitchen dictates the type of window treatments that will work well in your home. The window covering experts at Treasure Coast Window Fashions, serving the Palm Beach area, can help select the best window covering for your kitchen.

Budget Considerations

There are so many window treatments to choose from, with new styles and fabrics becoming available all the time. There’s a stylish and function window covering solution to fit virtually everyone’s budget. Get a better understanding of your budget with these considerations:

  • Take an inventory of how many windows you are considering covering
  • Are any windows directly above the sink?
  • Is there a sliding or French door that needs covered?
  • Do you have a specialty shape window such as bay window, skylight, etc.?
  • Does your kitchen open up to another room in an “open concept” design?

Direct Sunlight

How much bright sun enters your kitchen through the windows, and how much do you want to block? Consider when the sun enters the kitchen and how it affects the seating and cooking spaces during the day. The last thing you want is damaging UV rays fading your cushions or drying out your wood cabinets. You also want to make sure there isn’t blinding sun coming in right where people sit to eat. Some features to consider for light control:

  • Do you want a window treatment that you can rotate and tilt slats to angle the sun up or down?
  • Do you want a window treatment that can either filter or block out the sun completely?
  • Are there times of the day you would like the window treatment to disappear off the window?

Window Coverings for Privacy

Controlling light goes hand-in-hand with providing privacy. With houses very close together in some neighborhoods, kitchen windows can sometimes be a direct light of sight to the neighbor. A semi opaque or opaque window treatment might be a good idea in this case, providing privacy but also letting in diffused light.

Blinds, Shades, Shutters, Drapery and Top Treatments

At Treasure Coast Window Fashions, we carry a wide variety of Hunter Douglas blinds, shades, and shutters that work wonderfully in kitchens. Personalize your window coverings even more with draperies, valances, cornices or top treatments, alone or layered with another window treatment. For example, place a cornice made from a patterned fabric over a Duette Honeycomb Shade. Don’t be afraid to mix and match window treatments to reflect your character and decorating style. For added convenience, add motorization to your blind or shade.
