Designer Roller Shades & Skyline® Gliding Panels in the Kitchen

Having a nice view can make washing the dishes or prepping food more enjoyable. However, there are times you need more privacy, want light control, or just want to enhance the look of your kitchen. Window treatments are a pretty and practical addition. Let’s face it—your kitchen quickly becomes the hotspot of your home when hosting gatherings. At Windo VanGo serving Baltimore, we have some recommendations for selecting the perfect window treatment for your kitchen windows. See below!

  • For the ultimate in flexibility, consider Duette® Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shades by Hunter Douglas. These shades can be raised and lowered from the top or bottom as needed. This unique lifting system provides privacy and light control while still allowing you to view the outside.
  • Create a tailored look with a simple valance and Roman shade in the same fabric. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas offer beautiful 4″ and 6″ fabric folds on this modern Roman shade. They come in 16 richly textured fabrics in five collections with 102 fabric/color combinations. These fabrics are also sold by the yard so a custom “matching” valance can be made.
  • A splash of a pattern can add personality in a kitchen with simple style and a white color palette. Help frame a beautiful view with a custom-made valance mounted above the window. For added interest, consider having custom kitchen chair cushions made from the same fabric or color palette.
  • For a perfect country kitchen, select a custom-made scalloped valance above the sink. A beautiful scalloped valance with iron hooks and embellishments including tassels and trim will add the perfect flair for your country-inspired kitchen.
  • Filter light and soften the look of your kitchen with a loose-weave, soft-fabric treatment such as Silhouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas. Silhouette creates a look of soft louvers floating between two sheer fabrics. This window treatment rolls completely into the headrail for unobstructed views.
  • Shutters are perfect for transitional-style kitchens. Using shutters is a low-maintenance alternative that still controls light levels and views. The Palm Beach™ Polysatin Shutter from Hunter Douglas is perfect for over the kitchen sink. This shutter is constructed with UV-resistant vinyl, so they’re guaranteed never to warp, crack, fade, chip, peel, or discolor, regardless of extreme heat or moisture.
  • For kitchens with French, architectural details, consider Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Roman Shades. With over 300 fabrics and colors, you can select one of their French provincial fabrics in the “flat” Roman style, to add the perfect old-world accent to your space. Flat Roman shades fold up at the top when fully raised and lie flat when lowered, creating a low-profile look that works with a wide range of fabrics and prints.
  • Remember, fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color.
