Kitchen Replacement Windows and Their Window Treatments
You need stylish and functional treatments for the replacement windows in your kitchen, so not just any old drapes or shades will do. Learn more about your options.
Not just any old drapes or curtains will do for kitchen replacement windows in Redmond, WA. You need kitchen window treatments that offer a range of benefits and supports including security, flexible control over the amount of natural light, flexible control over privacy and outdoor views, durability, better heat and cold control, protection against furniture and décor fading with UV protection, as well as easy cleaning and maintenance.
Where do you find such incredible window treatments that seem to have it all? Look into shutters. From plantation shutters to café, modern to classic, shutters look great in any kitchen. There are tons of different kinds of shutters that will work well in a kitchen, and there are also lots of different price points.
But with so many different kinds of shutters, how do you choose the right kind for your kitchen?
You need to start with durability and style when it comes to your kitchen replacement window treatments. Durable materials are key. Your kitchen sees lots of daily use, so your kitchen coverings need to stand up to spills, splashes, grease, and lingering smells, so look into vinyl or faux wood. These materials are completely waterproof so there’s no need to worry about splashes. They’re also super easy to clean and maintain, and only need a quick wipe with a damp cloth every once in a while. If your coverings will be next to a sink, get bi-folding paneled shutters or foldable blinds so you can fold them away from the sink when in use to avoid too much splashing and wetness.
Don’t forget about the style. Kitchens should look nice but not be too fancy. Café style shutters fit the bill perfectly. They offer a classic kitchen look that’s stylish but not too fancy, and also offer great function. Café shutters cover the lower portion of the window for privacy but leave the upper portion open for light and ventilation. Café shutters come in different sizes and shapes to fit any window or kitchen style. You can have the shutters cover the bottom third, or you can add a mid-rail and have the shutters go all the way up to the top of the window as upper and lower louvers can then be operated independently.
Color is also very important. White is always a good choice for kitchen coverings, as white brightens up a room while blending in or offering a vibrant contrast. You can also go with a more contrasting color like red or yellow, or choose a classic neutral like brown, black or beige.
