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

Amid the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Kansas City house. As it’s one of the most frequent areas in your residence for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why a premade window treatment won’t work for special rooms like kitchens.

When creating new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the spot in mind. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or splattered as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more protected location, where fabric shades would be a fantastic solution?

You won’t be guessing on customizing the ideal kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Kansas City. With years of expertise, our design pros know what will match best in your beautiful house and its unique concerns. By yourself, the process can appear stressful. With our expert help, it’s fast and even fun to create the right style for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Simple-clean plantation shutters and blinds are classic window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. As an added bonus, they don’t have to have extensive maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working properly.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your home? Make a united appearance by installing them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise going with a style created from premium polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a moist cloth. And their finish stays beautiful while resisting water and steam. As an added bonus, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfortable no matter the weather.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and affordable window treatments. If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a reduced budget, faux wood blinds provide a similar look for less. And they offer many of the same benefits, including fast cleaning and withstanding water.

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

You can make both styles of custom blinds smart by adding PowerView®, which lets you move your window treatments with a swipe of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Other Parts of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where moisture and greasy splatters aren’t a problem, there are many styles of fabric and natural shades to highlight your house’s special appearance.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and bright colors to pick from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better option than curtains that get old rapidly.

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to include the perfect 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 full range of favorite neutrals for just the right look.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has lots of windows or faces bright sunlight, soften the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with moveable vanes that are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give 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 looking for the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic option. These shades incorporate honeycomb-shaped chambers that keep air at the windows, which are one of your house’s number one sources of energy leaks. As a result, your kitchen will feel comfier year-round. Having honeycomb shades across your house might even help you lower your utility costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, introduce warmth 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 too much light or humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without becoming misshapen or losing their color as time goes by.
