A kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in a home and today, it has to be made comfortable because apart from the kitchen being a place to prepare meals, it is also the place where people relax and chat as they dine. One way to make it a comfortable and attractive place is to spruce up the kitchen windows. Below are some interesting ideas for doing so:
Minimal is in
Strip away those heavy window coverings and replace them with some simple customized shades. You can use upholstered cornice if you want to take the path to less fabric.
An essential thing in the kitchen is natural light. Use pleated shades because apart from offering privacy, they also allow plenty of light into your kitchen. Most pleated shades come in different tones ranging from sky blue to white. If you also want a subtle stripes or even tropical looking pattern, then the market have all these available.
Pick current colors
For the fabric, it is proper to use contemporary tone. Look for shades that come in the trending colors like blacks, gold and greens. Mix cotton fabric prints within the treatment or coordinate the print in the valance or cornice for better results. For tiny looking kitchens, use light colors to make it look brighter and larger, and for the oversized kitchens, the use of warm colors can make them inviting and elegant looking.
Try some texture
Ever thought of roman shades? They are available in bamboo, rattan and other natural fibers. These ones add visual interest to your kitchen and can roll up smoothly as well.
Soften direct light
If too much direct sunlight is an issue in your kitchen, then you need to do something to make it cooler and pleasant place to work in. Simple woven wood shades or wood blinds can filter the light without looking too heavy.
Consider some curves
It is proper to consider doing things in a different way or make things look different while maintaining beauty and elegance. For instance, since your kitchen has lots of straight lines or squares like the appliances, cabinets and counters, you can add window treatments with soft curves so as to open the space up especially in those small kitchens.
You can also consider arching a valance especially over the sink. Another good option would be to include a curved cornice or a box pleated valance with a curved line along the bottom. If you don’t want all these, then go for roman shades and then line their edges with some decorative ribbons. This option makes your window treatment look more unique without having to spend lots of money on something that is custom made.
