Selecting Our Favorite Kitchen Window Coverings

The kitchen is the hub for everything in a house. It’s always the room that people gravitate to the most. So, why not set it up for success? One way to do this is with kitchen window coverings. Make sure that you are setting the atmosphere of the room by selecting the best light control, style and energy efficiency that window coverings can get. By doing this, you are well on your way to establishing your kitchen as the perfect space.

Behind the Sink

In homes, it is always easy to find a window located behind the sink. There are many benefits of this. You can look out the window as you hand wash dishes and you can easily allow natural air to flow through the space by simply opening the window up. Lastly, it creates a beautiful scenic backdrop outside of your window. Now, it is not common practice to hand wash dishes due to the invention of the dishwasher, but the concept has stuck with homeowners. However, controlling the privacy, glare and heat of the sun are some things you may need to consider when you are looking for kitchen window coverings.

Coordinate Your Windows and Doors

Typically in a kitchen, you will find a mix of windows and doors. You could have patio doors, sliding glass doors or even a set of french doors that lead out to the side or backyard. You may feel overwhelmed when it comes to finding window coverings for all. The good news is that they do not have to be identical. You can mix them up. Consider matching the shade to the movement of the door. By choosing fabrics that are similar, you have the opportunity to pair vertical and horizontal shades for an eye-catching look!

Dine In

In your kitchen, you may have a dine-in area that you don’t utilize that much. One reason why it is underutilized could be due to the light that comes through. You may be eating meals with the sun in your eyes or feel like the sun is warming up the temperature in the room. The good news is that this is easy to fix! By selecting the right kitchen window coverings, you are well on your way to creating a space that is enjoyable at every mealtime.
