The kitchen is often considered the “heart of the home,” and it’s no surprise why: it’s where we prepare our food, and it’s also often where we gather to enjoy that food with our families and friends. Many homeowners and homebuyers are on the search for the perfect kitchen, often willing to spend thousands of dollars and months to create the perfect layout with all the ideal finishes to offer an inviting kitchen for the entire family.

But after you’ve spent all the time to choose the right tile, cabinets, and countertops, you may find there’s one element missing from your kitchen: the perfect window treatments. So what are the best window treatments for your kitchen?

Consider the Location of Your Kitchen Windows

kitchen blindsThe first key to choosing the right window treatments for your kitchen is to consider where in the room your windows are. If they’re placed in the dining area or breakfast nook, your options are fairly limitless. However, if your kitchen windows are near your sink or stove, it might be a good idea to consider window treatments that are easy to clean. Treatments like faux wood blinds or shutters, or solar shades, only need a bit of soap and water to be cleaned, so they’re great for windows that are susceptible to splashes from soapy water, grease, and food debris.

Consider How Much Privacy You Want

Maybe you want to allow in as much natural light as possible, but also don’t want your neighbors to be able to see into your kitchen. Perhaps you live in a secluded area and don’t need as much privacy from your kitchen window treatments. These considerations can help you choose the right window treatments, from sheer solar shades that will let in plenty of light without a glare, to shutters that close all the way for full privacy.

Consider Your Kitchen’s Style

This is where you really get to have a lot of fun with your kitchen window treatments. If you recently remodeled your kitchen to be completely white or otherwise neutral, you can use shades and curtains to bring in pops of color and pattern. You can choose window treatments that match a more traditional style, or go for something more modern to fit a contemporary kitchen. Either way, the options are nearly endless, so you’re sure to find the right window treatments for your kitchen and your family!
