The kitchen is the only room in the entire house, where one works the hardest. So it becomes important to fix durable and long lasting window coverings without sidelining the style. There are absolutely hundred variations when it comes to kitchen window treatments. One can decorate it with a simple, homespun, cotton blind or use customized laced drapery for the same. It requires a creative individual to dress up a kitchen window as there are no specific rules that have to be followed. The size of the window, the material of the cloth used for curtains and your budget is what determines the ultimate end product.
Tips to be followed for treating kitchen windows:
- To protect your kitchen from the harsh light of the sun, we can select kitchen window treatments that come with UVA and UVB ray protection quality. Shades like cellular and solar are best options though some diffused light can still enter through them. In order to completely eradicate light, opaque window shades (also called blackout shades) with blinds made of vinyl and metal can be used.
- Also they have to be protected from the heat emanating from ovens and stoves places directly underneath them. The material makes up the difference in how easy it is to maintain the shades. Faux wood blinds and composite shutters are the solutions for this and also proves to be easy to clean in case of grime build up. Fabric treatments such as launder valances and Roman shades are to be dry-cleaned.
