Kitchen Windows

Learn how to protect and beautify windows in your cooking space.

There are many different kinds of curtain options; however, the shape and style of window—along with a budget—will help you determine the scope of the project. Doing an online search for kitchen window treatment ideas is a great way to ignite your imagination.

Curtains, drapes and fabric shades are only a few varieties of seemingly endless window covering options. Consider adding pattern and color, perhaps a fabulous print to liven things up. Choose a neutral, grounding fabric or material if you are after a clean, crisp contemporary or modern feeling. If your kitchen is particularly small, then light, cool colors can make it look larger and brighter; dark, warm colors can make an oversized kitchen feel more balanced and inviting. Geometric patterns or asymmetrical styles can create a stunning visual impact.

If privacy is a concern, investigate screening materials that let you see out but allow some daylight to pass while blocking views from the outside; consider café curtains, Roman shades and fabric roller shades using translucent or woven materials, or try sheer fabric, rod-pocket curtain panels.

Where privacy is not an issue, a simple swag of fabric draped over a single window can also make a statement. This is the opportunity for creativity to shine.

If you have large windows or are dealing with odd shapes, floor-length curtain panels are ideal and offer an opportunity for color and pattern when framing a large bay window or French doors.

Fabric valances are like accent marks over windows you want to showcase. Asymmetrical applications could balance offset windows or lend a more contemporary feeling to the kitchen.
