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

With the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is unlike any other room in your Atlanta residence. Because it’s one of the most used areas in your residence for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t be right for one-of-a-kind spaces 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 could 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 estimating on creating the right kitchen window treatments when you work with Louver Shop of Atlanta. With years of knowledge, our design consultants know what will work best in your gorgeous home and its one-of-a-kind challenges. Without help, the process can seem overwhelming. With our expert advice, it’s simple and even enjoyable to make the right style for your kitchen.

Here are a few of our designers’ recommendations for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Fast-clean plantation shutters and blinds are timeless window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. As an extra benefit, they don’t have to have much maintenance to keep them looking fantastic or working properly.

Plantation Shutters

Already using plantation shutters in your house? Make a connective style by installing them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style that incorporates quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are simple to clean with a wet cloth. And their finish remains beautiful while weathering water and steam. As an added plus, 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 adaptable and affordable window treatments. If you favor the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a reduced budget, faux wood blinds deliver a similar look for less. And they have many of the same perks, like fast cleaning and weathering water.

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

You can make both kinds of custom blinds smart by selecting PowerView®, which allows you to move 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 steam and greasy splatters aren’t a problem, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to highlight your residence’s exclusive appearance.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and bold colors to pick from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a wiser choice than curtains that become dated rapidly.

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

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

Sheer Shades

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

Cellular Shades

If you want the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the appearance of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a wise option. These shades have 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 seem more comfortable no matter the weather. Having honeycomb shades across your home might even help you reduce your energy bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These contemporary kitchen window treatments are made from grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and lasting performance. If you get excessive light or heat in your kitchen, these natural materials can handle it without losing their shape or losing their color over time.
