Best Window Treatments for Kitchens: Shutters, Shades and Blinds

With the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is distinct from any other space in your Richmond home. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your home for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why a premade window treatment won’t do for one-of-a-kind areas like kitchens.

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

You won’t be estimating on customizing the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Richmond. With years of knowledge, our design professionals know what will fit best in your special home and its one-of-a-kind concerns. On your own, the process can feel overwhelming. With our expert advice, it’s easy and even a good time to create the best solution for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Easy-clean plantation shutters and blinds are ageless window treatment styles to use over your kitchen sink. As an extra benefit, they don’t have to have extensive maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working well.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your house? Make a connective style by installing them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise selecting a style created from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

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


Blinds are one of the most versatile and economical window treatments. If you like the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds deliver a comparable look for less. And they have the majority of the same pluses, including simple cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more modern style, there’s mini blinds. Available in a wide range of up-to-date 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 swipe of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where moisture and food splatters aren’t a issue, there are many varieties of fabric and natural shades to flatter your house’s unique appearance.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and stylish colors to select from, Roman shades bring a modern twist to your kitchen. They’re more stylish than simple roller shades and a smarter choice than curtains that get old quickly.

If your kitchen is white or has a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to add an ideal amount of color with a complete collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re seeking farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to select from a complete 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 smart option for families with young children and pets.

Sheer Shades

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

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the style of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a excellent solution. These shades have honeycomb-shaped chambers that retain air at the windows, which are one of your home’s main sources of energy leaks. As a result, your kitchen will appear cozier no matter the weather. Installing honeycomb shades all over your house may even help you reduce your utility bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cool, 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 long-term performance. If you experience excessive light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without drooping or fading over time.
