Best Window Treatments for Kitchens: Shutters, Shades and Blinds

Between the water, steam and grease from cooking, your kitchen is distinct from any other room in your Charlotte house. Since it’s one of the most popular spots in your residence for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t work 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 food stains as you rinse dishes? Or is it in a more protected spot, where fabric shades would be a great solution?

You won’t be guessing on creating the ideal kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of Charlotte. With years of knowledge, our design professionals know what will fit best in your gorgeous house and its special issues. On your own, the process can seem overwhelming. With our expert assistance, it’s easy and even enjoyable to make the best solution for your kitchen.

Here are several of our designers’ favorites for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Simple-clean plantation shutters and blinds are classic window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t have to have lots of maintenance to keep them looking great or working properly.

Plantation Shutters

Already enjoying plantation shutters in your residence? Make a unified style by adding them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise choosing a style made from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

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


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

For a more modern look, there’s mini blinds. Available in a complete selection 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 open and close 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 water and greasy splatters aren’t a problem, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to complement your residence’s special look.

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 solution than curtains that get old rapidly.

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 desired neutrals for just the right style.

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

Sheer Shades

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

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are looking for the appearance 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 residence’s number one sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will seem more comfortable no matter the weather. Installing honeycomb shades all over your residence might even help you lower your utility costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your fully white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cool, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These up-to-date kitchen window treatments use grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you get too much light or humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without losing their shape or becoming faded as time goes by.
