Kitchen windows are great to dress up with brand new window treatments
Kitchen windows are great to dress up with brand new window
treatments, either to change a look or create a dramatic effect.
Ironically, the vast selection of window treatments makes it a little
difficult to choose which one is right. Here are some ideas you can try
to help you with your choice:
1. The size of your kitchen
does matter when choosing window treatments for your kitchen window.
Don't overwhelm your small kitchen with large, bold prints. Choose
smaller prints and lighter colors instead. Use accents sparingly. A
drape over the window creates a great look, but it might devour a lot of
space and make your kitchen window look ridiculously tiny. Work with
your kitchen window size and you can't go wrong.
2. Have a large
Use a swag or a valance from which to hang
curtains from. You can also use ruffled curtains to create a lovely
country look. Want it plain? Go for the more structured tailored look
and add a few accents like a colorful tieback, for example.
you want more privacy?
If you want more privacy but want to let in
light, choose sheer printed curtains or louvered blinds. Roman blinds
also work well or half-panel curtains that only cover a portion of the
kitchen window. These window treatments allow a partial coverage without
totally keeping you isolated in your little nook. They also give your
kitchen a great look without a lot of cost.
4. How much light?
deciding on which window treatment to use for your kitchen, determine
how much light you want to let in. While it's always a good idea to
encourage a lot of sunshine in, there might be times in the day when you
want to reduce the glare. If you do, go for sheer curtains topped with
printed fabrics or go for slightly thicker curtains and drapes you can
tie back if you want more light.
