Best Window Treatments for Kitchens: Shutters, Shades and Blinds

With the water, steam and grease from cooking, your kitchen is unlike any other space in your Birmingham house. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your residence for get-togethers and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t be right for one-of-a-kind rooms like kitchens.

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

You won’t be guessing on creating the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Birmingham. With years of expertise, our design professionals know what will work best in your special house and its special challenges. By yourself, the process can appear like too much. With our expert help, it’s simple and even a good time to create the ideal style for your kitchen.

Here are a couple 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 need much maintenance to keep them looking fantastic or working well.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your house? Make a unified appearance by having them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we recommend choosing a style made from quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

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


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and reasonably priced window treatments. If you favor the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds offer a similar look for less. And they have many of the same advantages, including fast cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more contemporary style, there’s mini blinds. Available in a wide range of contemporary metallic finishes, mini blinds are quick to clean and even easier to use.

You can make both types of custom blinds smart by choosing PowerView®, which gives you the ability to open and close your window treatments with a tap of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Other Parts of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where water and grease splatters aren’t a concern, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to flatter your house’s special appearance.

Roman Shades

With tidy pleats and bold colors to pick from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to 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 incorporates 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 looking for farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to choose from a complete range of popular neutrals for just the right look.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has a lot of windows or experiences strong sunlight, soften the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with rotatable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give excellent light control, while the sheer fabrics change harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow.

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic solution. These shades have honeycomb-shaped chambers that trap air at the windows, which are one of your home’s top sources of lost energy. Subsequently, your kitchen will appear comfier no matter the weather. Installing honeycomb shades all over your home could even help you lower your heating and cooling expenses.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cool, add warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These modern kitchen window treatments are made from grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and lasting performance. If you experience excessive light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can handle it without becoming misshapen or losing their color over time.
