The kitchen tends to have most of the traffic with family gatherings, and with stylish window coverings, you can make it even more inviting. Renovations can be expensive. If you aren’t ready to make a big investment in changing your entire home’s look, start with the room that makes the biggest impact—the kitchen.
Families spend so much time in the kitchen; as the heart of the home, it sets the mood for the rest of your space. Making a significant change in your kitchen can change the look of your whole living area.
One simple change you can make that doesn’t break the bank is new blinds. Before choosing blinds for your kitchen, consider a few things when deciding on the type. For example, if your window is near the food-prep areas where they may come into contact with water or splatters from the stove, faux wood shutters, blinds, or vinyl roller shades are durable and easy to clean.
Fabric shades such as Rolar or Roman shades are a good choice if the window is safer away from the food preparation area. Roller Shades are also great for light control.
Cellular blinds are energy efficient and will keep your kitchen comfortable all year.
Is there a specific time of day when the colour palette in your kitchen looks the best? Perhaps it’s the early morning when your warm colours feel soft and luxurious. Or, it could be those late afternoons when the cold colours in a kitchen will shine the most, with cloud-filtered light. Whatever your favourite time of day is in your kitchen, the outdoor light makes a difference. With roller shades, you can craft just the right light conditions for the whole day.
Like other kitchen window treatments from Fasada, roller shades are available in all shades. They can match your existing palette or add a new twist to the mix.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are precisely engineered with a cellular design that adds an extra layer of insulation at the window, so you can reduce energy consumption throughout the year and control the temperature in your kitchen while you’re cooking.
They come in numerous fabrics, colours and textures in various pleat sizes and opacities, so they’ll fit any kitchen décor. And with the Duette Duolite® option, you can combine two fabrics in one shade for more light control.
Modern kitchens are often all white or stainless, and Roman Shades are a great way to add colour, patterns and texture to a neutral palette. They are available in a wide range of luxurious fabrics, even down to the fabric-wrapped hardware. And like Duette shades, you can combine two fabrics with different opacities into a single shade.
Soften the look of your kitchen’s modern fixtures with Sheer Shadings by Hunter Douglas, which transform harsh rays into a warm glow. Silhouette® Window Shadings are a unique type of shading featuring the Signature S-Vane™ that appears floating between two sheers. The sheers gently diffuse light with the vanes open, while the white rear sheer provides daytime privacy. For even more light control, Silhouette shadings are also available with the Duolite® option that lets you pair a sheer shading with a room-darkening roller shade.
Pirouette blinds will work well in any kitchen and are exclusive to Hunter Douglas. They are designed with beautifully contoured fabric vanes that gracefully open and close along a single sheer backing. With two vane sizes and semi-opaque and room-darkening fabrics, you can choose numerous colours, textures and patterns. The UV Protection blocks up to 81% of harmful UV rays with the vanes open and 99% with the vanes closed.
The best kitchen blinds for windows near food-prep areas are faux wood blinds, and faux wood shutters are durable and easy to wipe down. EverWood & Parkland Blinds have the luxurious look of real wood blinds with realistic grain patterns. They are guaranteed against fading, yellowing, warping or bowing, even when exposed to steam or extreme heat while cooking. To clean, just wipe down with soap and water.
Made with a UV-resistant Polysatin compound, Palm Beach Polysatin Shutters are water resistant and never to warp, crack, fade, chip, peel or discolour, even in extreme heat or moisture.
The PowerView R Motorization makes the Palm Beach shutter the only motorized one on the market, perfect for hands-free louver operation. They can also operate manually without damaging the motor.
