Your kitchen is a unique space compared to other rooms in your home. Selecting the right window treatments may therefore require a different approach. Here are some design tips for kitchen window treatments.
Sometimes you may want privacy and other times you may want a view from your kitchen windows. Consider blinds and shades that allow you to easily switch between both. For instance, there are window shades that can raise to the top or sit at the bottom of the window area. There are also silhouettes that allow natural light in while still providing a level of privacy.
Blend In or Stand Out
Do you want your kitchen window treatments to blend in to your kitchen surroundings or stand out? This is important to decide ahead of time as your options and choice of materials and styles will differ. Blending in may require a neutral tone or a tone that matches your cabinetry and color scheme. Standing out will open up a wide range of options.
Add a Pop of Color
If you’d like your kitchen window treatments to be a focal point, consider adding a pop of color. Accent colors are a very effective interior design tool. For instance, in a white/gray kitchen, you might select window treatments with a yellow or coral color. In a maple kitchen, you may need to go bolder and brighter to achieve the same contrast.
Don’t Be Afraid of Patterns and Textures
Don’t be afraid to use textures and patterns in your kitchen window treatments. Most of a kitchen is fairly simple and sterile, consisting of flat surfaces with simple elements. Your windows are an opportunity to insert more interesting features to the space. Whether you choose shades or curtains, there will be an abundance of options to choose from.
