“Window treatments for kitchen windows come in many forms and are one of the easiest ways to make a visual impact.”

— DC+B Interior Consultant.

Window treatments for kitchen windows come in many forms and are one of the easiest ways to make a visual impact. Take Curtains as an example. They serve as window coverings for just about any window size or style and don’t need to be expensive.

Though there are various Curtain options, the ideal choice depends on the shape and style of window and obviously the budget. One way to discover what you like is to search online or explore our comprehensive range.

Curtains, Drapes, and fabric shades are only a few of the large variety of window treatments available. Consider adding pattern and colour or even a fabulous print to create impact. For a crisp, contemporary look consider a neutral fabric or material. For smaller kitchens, light and cool colours will make it look larger and brighter. Alternatively, dark and warm colours may give a large kitchen a more balanced and inviting feel. Geometric patterns or asymmetrical styles can create a stunning visual impact.

If you’re concerned about privacy, look around for screening materials which enable you to see out and allow some daylight to enter while blocking views from the outside. Roman Blinds , and Roller Blinds, using translucent or woven materials or even sheer fabric can achieve this effect.

Plantation Shutters, particularly those made from PVC, are ideal for kitchens. Not only are they UV, water and moisture resistant but they can also be made to any size or shape windows, including bay windows. The opportunities for creativity are endless.

Where there are larger windows to deal with or ones with odd shapes, floor-length Curtain panels are ideal. When framing a large bay window or something like French doors these offer an opportunity to add colour and pattern. Fabric Valances are like accent marks over windows you want to showcase.

Let’s talk light

Let’s get right to the point. How much light do you want coming through the Blind?

If you want to control the amount of light coming through your windows throughout the day, Venetian Blinds will allow you to do so. You can adjust the amount of light by opening and closing the blades, however rays of light may still slip through.

With Roller Blinds you can shut out the light completely during the day and night, or roll them up leaving you open to the world outside.

Both Blind options will offer complete privacy, but with Venetian Blinds you can be
semi-private and still have some light into your room.

Let’s talk interior design

Which of the Blind options is better for your interior design? It depends on what you’re hoping to achieve with the room.

Venetian Blinds are a more classic style of Blind and there are some gorgeous models and colours that will enhance any room.

Roller Blinds on the other hand come in many different materials, colours and patterns. You can make a much stronger statement with Roller Blinds. They can even become the focal point of your room, depending on the pattern you’ve chosen.

Practicality

Aside from the amount of light that you want to let into your room, you need to consider the space available. While you can order both for any window size, Roller Blinds tend to be tighter fitting, taking up less space than Venetian Blinds.

Roller Blinds are also the perfect option if you don’t want your window views obstructed. You can roll them up and have them out of the way completely which makes them very practical.

Both types can be easily cleaned by you or a professional. With Venetian Blinds you’ll just need to dust every blade, which can be more time-consuming. Roller Blinds consist of fabric so they are best cleaned by a professional or follow the care instructions provided.

If you give your Blinds the proper care, both Venetian Blinds and Roller Blinds will last a long time.

Venetian Blinds or Roller Blinds?

There is no right answer to this question. In fact, why choose? Get a set of Venetian Blinds for your kitchen and a set of Roller Blinds for your living room or vice versa. Having the best of both worlds is possible!
