Interior designers can help you put your creative stamp in your kitchen by understanding trends, materials, and space issues—often in unique ways. They have comprehensive knowledge of colors and how they relate to one another. They can be savvy about patterns, texture and how to layer. Interior designers specialize in materials and resources that offer a wide variety of possible window treatment ideas. This option may save you time and money because the professional decorator already has relationships with the best sources as well as access to designer fabrics.
Purchasing treatments that are custom made to your specifications is also an option to look into. Some online stores give you the option to fabricate designer kitchen window treatments per your preferences. All you need to do is select a suitable fabric and style, then specify some finer details of the order. The experts at the other end will take it from there and deliver you "ready-to-install" coverings without you having to find multiple reliable resources on your own.
Designer window treatments do not need to be expensive to look nice. There are many different kinds of options; however, the shape and style of window, along with a budget, will help you determine the scope of the project.
Curtains, drapes and shades are some of the easiest visual tools for making an impact in the kitchen since our eyes are naturally drawn to the light already. 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. Doing a search online is a great way to visually inspire and ignite your imagination.
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 Roman shades and roller shades using translucent or woven materials, or try sheer fabric, rod-pocket curtain panels. Frosted vinyl is also a simple, affordable solution that's a good design fix for windows requiring both privacy and light.
Where privacy is not an issue, a simple swag of patterned fabric draped over a single window can also make a statement. This is the opportunity for creativity to shine.
Do you have big windows or odd shapes? Floor-length curtain panels are ideal and offer opportunity for color and pattern when framing a large bay window or French doors.
Valances and cornices are like accent marks over windows you want to showcase. Asymmetrical applications could be wood or fabric, offering a more modern feeling to the kitchen.
Designer kitchen window treatments can have a tremendous impact on your kitchen. For the most personalized effect, choose resources that express your lifestyle: materials, texture, colors and design.
