Your Guide to Kitchen Window Treatments

Window treatments inject more style into your home’s interior design, especially in the kitchen. The following kitchen window treatments could be just what your kitchen needs to add a bit more style to the space’s design.

  • Cornice –The great thing about a cornice is that it won’t block any natural light. It’s main purpose is to add architectural interest. It also helps make your ceilings look higher, giving the kitchen the feeling of additional space.

  • Valance – A valance is similar to a cornice in that it acts more as a decoration than a shade. However, it has the feel of a curtain since it tends to contain folds in the fabric, it just happens to be much shorter than one. A valance will go a long way to adding visual balance to the kitchen.

  • Roman Shade – Roman shades are a fantastic option due to the fact that they don’t clutter up your window space, yet you can draw them all the way down to block light if you need to. This is in addition to the fact that they come in almost limitless patterns and colors to compliment your kitchen’s design with.
