At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, many of our customers leave kitchen window treatments for last because they aren’t sure what will work best in that room. After all, the kitchen serves many roles—not the least of which are cooking and entertaining. It’s important to get the look just right! Luckily we have a few ideas for treatments that might work best in a kitchen. Read on and contact one of our consultants to see these treatments in person!
Where your window is in the kitchen is very important to choosing the type of treatment that will be best. If your window is near where food prep can cause splatters or the sink can create steam or splashback, you’ll want to consider the material of your treatment well. Treatments made of easily cleanable faux wood or vinyl work well in areas prone to grease and steam; windows that are far from “danger” can be treated with other materials like fabric or woven wood.
Woven Wood Shades
If you’re looking to soften the hardness of stainless steel and kitchen appliances, natural materials like grasses, reeds, and bamboo can do the trick. Plus they come with other benefits; Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are durable and can resist stretching, bowing, fading, and breaking.
Modern Roman Shades
If you’re looking for a touch of class and elegance, Roman shades are sure hit. They combine the softness of drapery with eye-catching appeal of crisp, clean folds. If your kitchen is all white or has lots of stainless steel, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades can jazz it up through color, pattern, and texture.
To soften light and leave your kitchen with a welcoming glow consider sheers. Silhouette® Window Shadings are designed with the Signature S-Vane™ that appears to be floating between two sheers. Pirouette® Window Shadings offer beautifully contoured fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient, constructed of honeycomb cells that help insulate at the window. They’re available in numerous fabrics, colors, and textures, and you can choose from several pleat sizes and opacities.
Faux Wood Blinds or Shutters
To best withstand grease and other types of splatters, faux wood is the way to go. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters look like real wood but can better resist stains and are guaranteed not to warp, chip, or crack, even in a kitchen. Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds also look just like genuine wood and are guaranteed not to fade, yellow, warp, or bow, even when exposed to extreme heat.
