Kitchen Window Treatments

April 8, 2009

The kitchen is a very square and angular place. Cabinets and appliances are rectangular. All of these straight lines make it hard to add personality or warmth to the room. One way to improve the ambiance is with colorful or rounded window treatments.

It does not matter if you choose curtains or shades; either choice can be made in various textures and colors. You can bring out the subtle colors in your counter top, the grain of the wood in your kitchen table, or play off the themes present in your china.

To hide the hardware from hanging curtains or shades, it is common to install a valence or cornice. These decorative touches can be rounded at the edges or full and rounded in general to help soften the lines of your kitchen.
