Why Shutters, Shades and Blinds Are the Best Window Treatments for Kitchens

Between the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is distinct from any other room in your Charlotte house. Since it’s one of the most popular spots in your house for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t be right for unique rooms like kitchens.

When choosing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location in mind. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that might get wet or splattered as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more secure spot, where fabric shades would be a great solution?

You won’t be guessing on creating the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Charlotte. With years of expertise, our design pros know what will match best in your gorgeous house and its special concerns. On your own, the process can appear overwhelming. With our expert assistance, it’s easy and even enjoyable to make the best solution for your kitchen.

Here are a couple of our designers’ picks for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Fast-clean plantation shutters and blinds are classic window treatment styles to install over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t have to have a lot of maintenance to keep them looking great or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

Already using plantation shutters in your residence? Develop a unified style by adding them in your kitchen. When choosing plantation shutters for your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style made from quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish remains beautiful while weathering water and steam. As an extra advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen cozy year-round.


Blinds are one of the most flexible and reasonably priced window treatments. If you like the style of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds provide a close look for less. And they provide most of the same benefits, including easy cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more modern look, there’s mini blinds. Available in a full collection of contemporary metallic finishes, mini blinds are simple to clean and even quicker to use.

You can make both styles of custom blinds smart by adding PowerView®, which allows you to raise and lower your window treatments with a touch of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Remainder of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where steam and greasy splatters aren’t a issue, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to complement your residence’s special appearance.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and bold colors to choose from, Roman shades incorporate a contemporary twist in your kitchen. They’re better than simple roller shades and a smarter option than curtains that get old quickly.

If your kitchen is white or has a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to include just the right amount of color with a full collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re looking for farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to choose from a full range of favorite neutrals for just the right style.

As an extra safety feature, our Roman shades don’t come with rear cords, making them a smart choice for homes with small children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has a lot of windows or faces bright sunlight, fade the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a a collective window treatment, with rotatable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes provide outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics transform bright sunlight into a welcoming glow.

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are looking for the style of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a excellent solution. These shades use honeycomb-shaped chambers that retain air at the windows, which are one of your house’s top sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will appear more comfortable no matter the season. Having honeycomb shades all over your house might even help you decrease your utility expenses.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, introduce warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These contemporary kitchen window treatments use grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you get excessive light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without losing their shape or becoming faded as time goes by.
