Window Treatments for Kitchen Remodel

Remodeling a kitchen can be a fun project, but some things tend to get overlooked. No, we’re not talking about that crown molding near the floor, we’re talking windows! It’s easy to bypass the window area in a kitchen when it comes to changing everything up, but soon you’ll see why it’s wise to keep those windows on the top of your to-do list!

Window treatments are often overlooked and can look rushed and clash with a newly remodeled room but here are some top options in making your windows shine bright, even with the shades drawn!

  • Going for a rustic look? Can’t go wrong with a faux wood blind or shutters. This simple look comes across as classic and comfortable, never going out of style, and the material is PVC, so it makes cleaning a breeze.
  • Roller shades provide a more modernized style and perfect for a small window frame. It complements the smaller frames because when the shade is rolled up completely, it gives full visibility out and in the window.
  • Roman shades give you a non-traditional window dressing that is sure to become a topic point for guests in your home. This type works best with neutral color rooms, such as a remodeled kitchen done in all white. The fabric allows for a light design overlaying it, usually made of a type of beading and other fabric which adds to the Roman shades’ flair.
  • A cousin of the Roman shade, woven wood shades also add that essence of non-traditional flair to a room. The only downside to these shades is their weakness to food and grease stains, which takes you back to the option of faux wood that’s easier to keep clean and fresh.

These are only a few of the options available to you to tie your newly remodeled kitchen, or any other room, together. Valances and curtains that tie in with the theme of the room can also be a great addition to a single window waiting to be retouched. Make sure to keep the windows on the top of the list when it comes to renovations. Just remember this, if you have to look at it to see through it, it should look good while you do it!
