Kitchen Window Coverings: Our Top Choices

As one of the hardest working rooms in your home, the kitchen window coverings can have a huge impact on the atmosphere and function of the space–not to mention style. Let’s take a tour of the most common spots and which choices are our favorites…


Above the Sink

Probably one of the most common windows we see is the one placed behind the sink. The tradition of standing at the sink washing dishes was the driving force behind this feature. And, even though the dishwasher is doing the bulk of the dishes, the feature still stands.

This window can let in an abundance of light–both direct and glaring–so an option for covering it is a must.

If you find yourself wanting to block the sunlight due to temperatures rising–in addition to the oven–make sure you choose something to insulate that window. The good news is that with top down bottom up, you can cover a majority of the window while still bringing in natural light.


The Dining Space

An eat-in kitchen area provides the perfect place to share a casual meal for the family. But, without the right kitchen window coverings, the light could be chasing the family away. If morning rays or the setting sun shine right into this space, it’s going to dampen the mood. Cover the windows so that everyone can be comfortable–and no one gets stuck in the hot seat.

The Same Shared Space: Windows & Doors

The concept of open floor plans often brings doors and windows together in the same “room,” not to mention, access to the grill for outdoor living. Because of this, many homeowners find themselves wondering which kitchen window coverings will also cover doors.
