Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, not just for you, but for friends and family too. That’s why it’s important to have a space that is both stylish, yet functional. So giving your windows a little treatment as well, will help make it even more so. Not only will your new window coverings serve a functional purpose, but they’ll play a visual role.
Budget Blinds of Winnipeg offers a full variety of window coverings from blinds, curtains, draperies and more. They share some window treatment ideas that’ll add function and style in your kitchen:
1. Roman shades
Thanks to the diversity in both colours and textures, Roman shades are a great way to add colour or elegance to your kitchen. Since they are made of fabric, any light coming through will filter in as a soft glow. If you have a white contemporary kitchen, go for bold, bright colours to add a colourful touch. If your kitchen already had a colour theme, consider a pattern instead. This will add some interest to your window, as well as add some accents to the room.
2. Faux wood blinds and shutters
If you want a more classic and subtle look for your windows, consider going for faux wood blinds. This classic style is one that has stayed popular throughout the ages and will work in any kitchen. Faux wood blinds are also perfect against any high-splash areas, such as above the sink or stovetop. Since they’re made of PVC, a simple soapy wipe will keep them clean and looking like new. Stick with a classic white to give your windows an open, airy feel. Or, go for a wood tone to keep with the real wood look and feel.
3. Sheer shades
Sheer shades are an ideal way to still allow natural lighting into a room, without losing privacy or any views. Thanks to the soft material as well, the shades transform the light into a soft, warm glow. Shades can also easily be paired with other window treatments, so you can have a daytime and nighttime look. Plus, even though sheer shades are a simple design, they still add an aesthetic touch to your windows. Sometimes simplicity is all you need to transform a room!
If you don’t want a full window cover, but still want a little treatment, then add a valance! Depending on the style, pattern and colour, valances can dress up your windows in different ways. From a touch of vintage, something classic, or a sense of elegance, a valance can provide that custom look. There are also different shapes from semi-circular, straight or triangle-shaped. Or consider doubling up on appearances and pair your valance with another style such as shades or blinds. That way, you’ll get the style of the valance with a functional way to have privacy or light control.
