Top 5 Window Treatments For Your Kitchen
Kitchens are where the magic happens. Whether you’re at a family gathering, friends birthday party, or just enjoying a family dinner in your St. Louis area home, the kitchen is one of the centerpieces of your time spent with loved ones. Adding stylish window treatments in your kitchen can make time spent inside more inviting.
One thing to consider when choosing window treatments for your kitchen is the placement of your windows. Over sinks and food-prep areas you want to remember that many times water, steam, food and grease spatter can reach your window treatments. In situations like this, you might want to consider faux wood blinds or shutters so that they can be easily cleaned. Not all windows are located in tricky areas, so cellular shades and roman shades are an option as well. That being said, here are some window treatments that could be perfect for your STL kitchen.
Duette Honeycomb Shades are specially designed to add an extra layer of insulation which reduces energy consumption, helps control temperature and looks modern. The product is available in single-cell or honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for maximum energy efficiency.
The product comes in a wide variety of fabrics, colors and textures. Additionally, it comes in different pleat sizes as well as opacities for your desired amount of light control. Lastly, if you have sliding glass doors in your kitchen, Duette with the Vertiglide™ system allows you to use either one shade to cover the doors, or two shades that operate independently from one another.
2. Modern Roman Shades
Modern Roman Shades are an excellent alternative to traditional window shades. Roman Shades combine the feel of a drapery with a clean appearance. Many kitchens and homes use white, greys and stainless appliances in their design, so Roman Shades are a great option to match the neutral color pallets. The product is available in different patterns and textures so that you can find the perfect match. There are multiple options for light control. You can combine light-filtering shades with an optional room darkening panel that combine to roll into a singular headrail.
Additionally, the Vignette shades do not have rear exposed cords which are a safe option if you have pets and/or children.
3. Sheer Shadings
Sheer shadings are excellent for transforming harsh light into an elegant, warm glow. These unique shades gently diffuse light while providing privacy at the same time. These shades from Hunter Douglas can be found with the Duolite® option to pair the sheer shades with room darkening roller shades.
4. Woven Wood Shades
For a stylish pairing, woven wood shades combine perfectly with stainless steel and cooler colors in your St. Louis kitchen. Woven wood shades are made from natural materials like bamboo, grasses, reeds and jute that are processed in a sustainable fashion from Hunter Douglas.
Woven wood shades can be used by themselves or with room-darkening liners. Liners increase privacy as well as contrast with your shades creating a beautiful texture.
5. Faux Wood Blinds And Shutters
Faux wood blinds and shutters are perfect around food-prep, cooking, and cleaning areas in your kitchen. The durable design allows you to wipe messes off of the window treatments without worrying about damaging them. The design options are limitless. Textures, grains, colors and material options allow you to create the perfect window treatment that is meant to last.
UV-resistant Polysatin compounds are guaranteed to never warp, crack, fade, chip, peel or discolor. Most of the time guests can’t even differentiate the faux material with real wooden blinds and shades. Whether you choose real wood or faux, you feel great knowing that they are designed to look great for years to come.
