Taking on Kitchen Window Coverings

With kitchens today taking on a “hybrid” role, it’s more important than ever to make yours function seamlessly. Whether your family spends their time meal prepping, baking or doing homework–they need a kitchen atmosphere that is comfortable. Let’s get a head start by selecting the right kitchen window coverings.

Everything and the Kitchen Sink Window 

The placement of a window behind the kitchen sink has been a long standing feature in homes for years. With the invention of the dishwasher, homeowners aren’t spending hours a day gazing out the window while he washes & she dries. Amen to that! And, don’t worry, you won’t lose the view of the outdoors: We have view-through shades that filter the glare into useful light.

But, the kitchen layout remains and so does the window. Currently, we have many clients covering the kitchen window for comfort, privacy, energy efficiency and more…

Windows + Doors Working Together

In most kitchens, windows and doors share the same space. This can cause a roadblock if you prefer your kitchen window coverings to match. Whether you have sliding glass doors, french doors or patio doors, we can help you find coverings that will complement one another and function as needed.

In terms of function, doors and windows may operate differently. Many homeowners prefer the treatment to simulate the movement of the window. We have treatments that move horizontally and vertically for this reason. Coordinating treatments can look great in the same space and offer ease of function too.

Dining In

A happy, bright kitchen is what we all desire, but sometimes it can get too bright, making things uncomfortable. The direction your windows face has a big impact in this. The penetrating sun can cause glare that is unbearable and chase your family out of the kitchen. Kitchen window coverings will protect your space from blinding sunlight and more. Our experts can evaluate your kitchen and suggest treatment options that are right for you.
