The kitchen has been called the heart of the home and nothing could be more true. From creating meals that nourish your crew to the place where pre-school and work conversations happen over morning coffee and toast, the kitchen is the hot spot in more ways than one! Whether you’re going through a full scale kitchen renovation or are thinking of updating your window solutions in that room, it is valuable to know which options are best for the kitchen. We’re here to help guide you through the possibilities to enhance this special spot.
One of the biggest issues in selecting the right window treatment for kitchen windows is answering an easy question about the windows found here: are they located in a splash zone? Simply put, the kitchen is full of areas where splashes are the norm. If your window is near the stove, above a sink or next to the place where you do lots of food prep, there is a really good chance that steam, water, food or grease can come into contact with these window treatments. So choosing the right material is a major consideration when starting to shop for your options. If any of your windows are in a place where splashing is a reality, focus on PVC- based possibilities like Vinyl Roller Shades, Faux Wood Shutters or Composite Wood Blinds. The material used to create these window solutions is made to stand up to heat, humidity and moisture without warping. Plus, you can clean them easily, keeping them fresh and giving you many years of use. Just wipe with water and soap.
For a window that isn’t located in a splash zone and your style is modern, Roller Shades can give your kitchen clean lines. Ideal for small windows, they hardly cover any of the windows once you fully raise them.
Another lovely option for windows that aren’t in a place to be splashed is a Roman Shade. If you have a kitchen that is predominantly white or gray, a colorful, patterned Roman Shade can make your windows pop and stand out. If your aesthetic runs a more traditional or modern farmhouse, adding a Roman Shade can impart a sense of charm and softness that finishes off a kitchen beautifully.
Faux Wood Blinds can truly steal the show by adding a classic look. They’re always in fashion and never feel outdated. Plus, the composite material is simple to wipe off if there is any grit or grime that builds up. Faux Wood Blinds are truly iconic in style but reasonable when it comes to your budget.
