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

Between the water, steam and grease from cooking, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Denver house. Because it’s one of the most popular areas in your residence for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look stunning. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t be right for special spaces like kitchens.

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

You won’t be taking a chance on customizing the best kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of Colorado. With years of experience, our design pros know what will fit best in your gorgeous house and its unique issues. On your own, the process can appear stressful. With our expert advice, it’s fast and even enjoyable to design the best solution for your kitchen.

Here are several of our designers’ recommendations 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 install over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t require lots of maintenance to keep them looking fantastic or working properly.

Plantation Shutters

Already using plantation shutters in your residence? Create a consistent style by having them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we advise selecting a style made from superior polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are simple to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish remains beautiful while resisting water and steam. As an added advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfortable no matter the season.


Blinds are one of the most versatile and economical window treatments. If you like the look of plantation shutters but are on a reduced budget, faux wood blinds deliver a comparable look for less. And they provide many of the same pluses, like fast cleaning and resisting water.

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

You can make both types of custom blinds smart by selecting PowerView®, which gives you the ability to raise and lower your window treatments with a touch of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where moisture and grease splatters aren’t a concern, there are many varieties of fabric and natural shades to highlight your home’s special appearance.

Roman Shades

With crisp pleats and stylish colors to pick from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a smarter choice than curtains that become dated quickly.

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to include just the right amount of color with a wide collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re on the hunt for farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to pick 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 wise option for homes with little children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has lots 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 are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics diffuse glaring sunlight into a soft glow.

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a wise choice. These shades incorporate honeycomb-shaped chambers that hold on to air at the windows, which are one of your house’s number one sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will appear cozier no matter the weather. Having honeycomb shades all over your residence may even help you reduce your utility bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These contemporary kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you experience a lot of light or heat in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without becoming misshapen or fading over the years.
