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

With the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is unique from any other area in your Lake Charles house. As it’s one of the most frequent areas in your home for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look stunning. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t be right for unique rooms like kitchens.

When creating new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location under consideration. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that could get wet or greasy as you rinse dishes? Or is it in a more protected spot, where fabric shades would be an ideal fit?

You won’t be guessing on creating the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Louisiana. With years of experience, our design professionals know what will work best in your gorgeous house and its unique concerns. By yourself, the process can feel like too much. With our expert assistance, it’s fast and even enjoyable to create the ideal solution for your kitchen.

Here are several of our designers’ selections for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Fast-clean plantation shutters and blinds are classic window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. As an added bonus, they don’t require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your house? Develop a cohesive look by installing them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style created from premium polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are fast to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish stays beautiful while standing up to water and steam. As an added plus, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen cozy year-round.


Blinds are one of the most versatile and economical window treatments. If you favor the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds offer a similar look for less. And they offer many of the same advantages, like simple cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more updated appearance, there’s mini blinds. Available in a full range of contemporary metallic finishes, mini blinds are simple to clean and even quicker to use.

You can make both kinds of custom blinds smart by choosing PowerView®, which allows you to move your window treatments with a swipe of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Remainder of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where steam and grease splatters aren’t a concern, there are many styles of fabric and natural shades to flatter your house’s special appearance.

Roman Shades

With crisp pleats and bold colors to select 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 incorporates a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to add an ideal amount of color with a wide 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 desired neutrals for just the right style.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has a lot of windows or faces blinding sunlight, fade the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a a collective window treatment, with moveable vanes that are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes provide outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics transform glaring 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 fantastic option. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that hold on to air at the windows, which are one of your home’s top sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will appear more comfortable no matter the weather. Having honeycomb shades across your house might even help you decrease your energy costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your completely white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cool, add warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These up-to-date kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you experience too much light or heat in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without losing their shape or losing their color over time.
