What Types of Window Treatments Are Best for a Kitchen?

For many, the kitchen is not just the most used room in the home, it is also the heart of it. One of the best ways to give warmth to a kitchen is by installing window treatments that are stylish and most importantly, durable. After all, the kitchen takes a lot of heat, so you want something that can stand up to it and other cooking elements. Thankfully, there are many window treatments that are up for the challenge! Consider the following options:

  • Faux wood blinds and shutters – Both of these options will not only provide a polished and timeless look to your kitchen, but they will also be easy to maintain, since water splotches and other stains can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth.
  • Woven wood shades – Crafted using bamboo, grasses, jutes, and other naturally grown materials, woven wood shades are on trend and add a beautiful, earthy contrast to the stainless steel and other “hard” surfaces of a kitchen.
  • Cellular shades – Cellular shades are excellent at adding another layer of insulation at the window, so they can reduce energy consumption throughout the year and lower the heat in your kitchen while cooking.
  • Solar shades – Solar shades provide a sleek, minimalist look to any space, and they can also be easily wiped down with soap and water if any messes splatter onto them.
  • Roller shades – Roller shades are available in a wide array of fun colors and patterns that will breathe life into an otherwise monochrome kitchen. Fabric options are both easy to use and easy to clean.

Bay Home & Window partners with Costco. Not only did the Costco collaboration help to give us confidence in the quality of Bay Home & Window, but we also got a great deal on our purchase of window coverings for our whole house! We're very happy with the quality of the product and the high-quality installation work. The window coverings look great.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
