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 room in your Baltimore residence. As it’s one of the most popular places in your residence for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t be right for one-of-a-kind areas like kitchens.

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

You won’t be taking a chance on customizing the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Maryland. With years of expertise, our design consultants know what will fit best in your beautiful residence and its one-of-a-kind issues. By yourself, the process can seem stressful. With our expert help, it’s easy and even a good time to design the ideal style 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 timeless window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. As an added bonus, they don’t need extensive maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

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

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish retains its beauty while resisting water and steam. As an additional bonus, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfortable year-round.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and affordable window treatments. If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds provide a comparable look for less. And they have many of the same pluses, like easy cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more updated appearance, there’s mini blinds. Available in a wide selection of modern metallic finishes, mini blinds are easy to clean and even faster to use.

You can make both kinds of custom blinds smart by choosing PowerView®, which lets you open and close your window treatments with a touch of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where water and greasy splatters aren’t a problem, there are many varieties of fabric and natural shades to flatter your residence’s exclusive look.

Roman Shades

With tidy pleats and bold colors to pick from, Roman shades incorporate a contemporary twist in your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better option than curtains that go out of style 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 complete 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 desired neutrals for just the right style.

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

Sheer Shades

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

Cellular Shades

If you want the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the style of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a smart option. These shades use honeycomb-shaped chambers that keep air at the windows, which are one of your home’s main sources of energy leaks. Due to this, your kitchen will seem more comfortable year-round. Using honeycomb shades across your house could even help you decrease your heating and cooling costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your fully white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These modern kitchen window treatments are made from grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you have a lot of light or humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without losing their shape or fading over the years.
