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

Amid the water, steam and grease from cooking, your kitchen is unlike any other room in your Boston residence. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your house for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t do for unique rooms like kitchens.

When designing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location under consideration. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or food stains as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more protected area, where fabric shades would be an excellent solution?

You won’t be guessing on customizing the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Boston. With years of knowledge, our design professionals know what will work best in your special residence and its unique concerns. On your own, the process can seem stressful. With our expert advice, it’s fast and even fun to design 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

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

Plantation Shutters

Already enjoying plantation shutters in your house? Create a cohesive appearance by adding them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style made from quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are fast to clean with a moist cloth. And their finish remains beautiful while weathering water and steam. As an extra plus, 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 economical window treatments. If you like the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds provide a similar look for less. And they provide many of the same benefits, like easy cleaning and weathering water.

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

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

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For areas in your kitchen where moisture and grease splatters aren’t a concern, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to flatter your home’s exclusive appearance.

Roman Shades

With crisp pleats and bold colors to pick from, Roman shades incorporate a contemporary twist in your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better solution than curtains that become dated in just a few years.

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 full collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re seeking farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to select from a full range of popular neutrals for just the right style.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has many windows or faces strong sunlight, fade the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with rotatable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give excellent light control, while the sheer fabrics transform bright sunlight into a warm glow.

Cellular Shades

If you love the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic solution. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that trap air at the windows, which are one of your house’s number one sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will appear more comfortable no matter the weather. Installing honeycomb shades all over your residence could even help you lower your utility costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your fully white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cool, introduce warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These up-to-date kitchen window treatments are made from grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you experience excessive light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without drooping or fading over the years.
