How to Choose the Best Window Treatments for Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home: From cooking and entertaining to helping the kids with homework, we’re in our kitchens a lot. That’s why it’s important for kitchens to not only look great but also function seamlessly with our busy lives. Learn how to select blinds or shades that create a comfortable, functional, and beautiful kitchen.
What to consider when shopping for kitchen blinds or shades.
To better understand which window treatments fit your needs, pause and reflect on what would make you feel inspired in your kitchen. Prioritize what matters most from the list below, taking into consideration your kitchen’s size and the direction its windows face.
- Durability — Whether you’re cooking a holiday meal or weeknight dinner, your kitchen experiences increased humidity and frequent temperature swings. Look for window treatments built to withstand these conditions and frequent cleaning, a necessity for windows in the “splash zone” near a sink or cooktop.
- Style and decor — Consider window treatments that not only add color, but feature fabrics, patterns and textures that soften the kitchen, where hard surfaces dominate.
- Light control — Whether you’re chopping vegetables or decorating a cake, optimal lighting in the kitchen is a must-have. Choose window treatments that create a comfortable kitchen environment, from reducing glare, diffusing harsh morning or afternoon light, or prevent sun-induced overheating.
- Privacy — Ideal for homes with tight lot lines or street-facing kitchens, keep family time to your family with window treatments that block views in.
Pro tip: Add motorization to simplify your daily routine, save on energy costs with automation and easily adjust window coverings on hard-to-reach windows.
