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

Between the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Gulf Coast residence. Since it’s one of the most frequent spots in your house for get-togethers and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t work for special spaces like kitchens.

When creating new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the spot in your decision-making process. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or greasy as you rinse dishes? Or is it in a safer location, where fabric shades would be an ideal solution?

You won’t be taking a chance on making the ideal kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of Gulf Coast. With years of experience, our design pros know what will match best in your special residence and its unique concerns. By yourself, the process can feel stressful. With our expert assistance, it’s fast and even fun to design the best option for your kitchen.

Here are a few of our designers’ selections 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 install over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t need much maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working properly.

Plantation Shutters

Already using plantation shutters in your house? Develop a unified style by installing them in your kitchen. When choosing plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise selecting a style made from quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are simple to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish retains its beauty while standing up to water and steam. As an extra advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfy no matter the season.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and affordable window treatments. If you favor the look of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds provide a close look for less. And they have many of the same advantages, such as simple cleaning and resisting water.

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

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

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Other Parts of Your Room

For areas in your kitchen where steam and food splatters aren’t a concern, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to complement your home’s special style.

Roman Shades

With crisp pleats and bold colors to pick from, Roman shades bring a modern twist to your kitchen. They’re better than simple roller shades and a smarter option than curtains that become dated rapidly.

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to include an ideal 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 pick from a wide range of popular neutrals for just the right appearance.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has lots of windows or attracts strong sunlight, ease the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a a collective window treatment, with adjustable vanes that are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes deliver excellent light control, while the sheer fabrics change glaring sunlight into a warm glow.

Cellular Shades

If you want the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a wise option. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that trap air at the windows, which are one of your home’s number one sources of lost energy. Due to this, your kitchen will appear cozier no matter the season. Having honeycomb shades across your residence could even help you lower your utility expenses.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely 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 enduring performance. If you experience excessive light or humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without becoming misshapen or losing their color over the years.
