Kitchen Window Treatment Essentials: Things to Consider

Provided by Better Blinds of Ocean View, DE

Kitchen window treatments are a great way to add softness and décor…

to a space as functional as a kitchen. Shades and curtains can add a splash of color, texture, or pattern to a room while controlling natural light and privacy. It is important to choose kitchen window treatments that are appropriate for your personal style and daily needs. These are the four factors to consider when selecting kitchen window treatments that will give your cooking area a professional, personal look.

Kitchen Window treatments can be used as accents…

Hanging floor-length curtains panels can be used to add color and pattern to areas beyond the kitchen’s work area, such as in breakfast nooks. A colorful swag draped above a single window is another way to make a bold statement. When lowered, roman and roller shades show texture and patterns.

Static valances or cornices highlight windows that you wish to draw attention to. To give your kitchen window treatments the best decorative effect, use fabrics with eye-catching colors and designs. You can also have fun with trims and tassels as well as fringe and bold banding.

Kitchen Window Treatments can prevent damage to your home…

Our bodies and homes can be damaged by the sun, especially UVA and UVB. The direct, harsh sunlight can increase interior temperatures, dry out fabrics, dullen cabinet finishes, fade wood floors and cause a drying effect on leather. Window coverings should be advertised as having sun protection to protect your kitchen. Solar shades and cellular shades will show how much UVA and UVB radiation they block while still letting in light.

Optical window treatments such as curtains or blackout shades can provide complete control over light. Shutters and blinds made of wood, vinyl or metal can block the sun when closed. You can add sunlight-filtering properties to your windows for extra protection. You can either install new windows with a low E coating or line existing windowpanes using an adhesive or static-cling material.

It is important to keep your kitchen window treatments clean…

Anywhere you place your stove or sink, food, cooking oil, and dishwater will absorb splatters. It doesn’t matter what material you choose; it will make it much easier to maintain your kitchen window treatments.

You can easily launder and rehang most curtains and fabric valances. Vinyl blinds, solar shades, shutters, and vinyl blinds can also be washed with soapy water.

It can be more difficult to wash real wood blinds. They need to be cleaned using wood cleaner. Dry-cleaning is required for elaborate fabric treatments such as Roman shades and panels with trim or lining. To keep cellular shades dust-free, they should be vacuumed only.

The kitchen is the heart of family gatherings…

and the place where all the fun seems to be happening. You can make your kitchen more welcoming with window treatments. Before you decide on your kitchen window treatments, consider where they are located.

Faux wood blinds, faux wooden shutters or vinyl roll shades might be a good option if your shades are near the stove, sink or other food prep areas. They’re durable and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
