[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The kitchen is the heart of every home. It is the place where meals are prepared and where delicious food is enjoyed together over good conversation.

Since it is where the family often gathers, why not make it into a beautiful space where everybody loves to be in, a place where the family truly feels at home?

To make this happen one of the areas you would need to work on is the styling of your kitchen windows? As any stylist would tell you, the way to greatly style your kitchen windows is with the right window treatment.

Just like how windows can have a huge effect on a house’s style, the window treatment that you use for a space can also make a huge difference in a window’s design.

Pick the right window treatment for your kitchen following these guidelines.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Function” alignment=”left”][/ultimate_heading][vc_column_text]This should be considered first when you are on the market for window treatments for your kitchen. If you value privacy then easy to use blinds and shades are among the most ideal choices according to Sarah Egge of Better Homes and Gardens. For quick privacy issue fixes, easy to use blinds would work great while roller shades made of translucent material are good for consistent privacy needs.

If you are concerned by the amount of sunlight that comes into your house, particularly into your kitchen windows, also take into consideration the blocking abilities of the window treatment you use. Sarah also explained that blinds made of either wood, vinyl or metal can do a pretty good job of blocking out the sun. Blackout shades can also work well to control sunlight exposure with its light-prohibiting layer, according to Lauren West ofHGTV.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”14046″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Design” alignment=”left”][/ultimate_heading][vc_column_text]Ensure that the window treatment you choose for your home is one that works well with your home’s design. You can opt to have as the same style with one design element you already have in the room. One example that designer Lindsey Coral Harper used as illustrated in House Beautiful is having the fabric of the roman shade as the same design with that of the kitchen sofa. This will tie the two designs together and create a harmonious style throughout the space.

If you don’t want two design elements in one space to be an exact match of each other, you can choose a Roman shade or blinds to be in the same shade as the other elements in the room. You can also choose blinds with colors that complement or work well with the other design elements.
