Kitchen curtains and many of the other window treatments available all help your kitchen to look stylish. In addition, they help to complement the décor of your home, provide privacy and help to protect your kitchen counter and appliances from direct exposure to the sun.
Some homeowners struggle with finding the best option to use by their kitchen windows, so we have put together a few combinations that you can consider using in your home.
Kitchen Curtains Only
Kitchen curtains alone will work fine for most kitchen windows. They are ideal for letting in much needed natural light into the kitchen, while offering some amount of privacy. Kitchen curtains are easy to clean and can be changed from time to time to match your seasonal décor themes. Kitchen curtains are also an inexpensive window treatment option.
Although blinds are more expensive than the usual kitchen curtains, they are extremely versatile. If you happen to choose blinds that have a neutral color, such as bamboo blinds, you will have no issue when you change your décor each season. Unlike curtains, blinds can be difficult to clean and may require professional help to get them looking great once more.
Using a valance alone is ideal for a kitchen with a window that offers a panoramic view. This will allow you to always have a view of the garden or ocean, depending on where your property is located. If you live in a high-rise apartment complex or condominium where privacy is not an issue, valances are a great option for your kitchen.
Kitchen Curtains With Valance
The mix of kitchen curtains with valance is quite common. If the kitchen curtains have a busy pattern, it is best to use a valance that has a solid color, preferably one from the curtains, or any other solid color that will work well with the curtains. If the valance is multicolored, then try to use a solid color for the curtains.
Valance With Blinds
If you wish to have privacy in your kitchen but an elegant décor at the same time, the valance and blinds combination is the perfect solution. Your white or brown blinds can be paired with a multicolored valance for a very chic look in your kitchen.
Regardless of whether you choose to use kitchen curtains alone or combine them with other window treatments, you must ensure that your choice is consistent with the overall décor of your home. If your home has a modern style, then your window treatment should match that style. For a country kitchen or a traditional kitchen, the kitchen curtains are expected be similar.
