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

With the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is unlike any other room in your Boston residence. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your residence for get-togethers 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 in your decision-making process. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or food stains as you rinse dishes? Or is it in a more protected location, 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 pros know what will work best in your special residence and its unique concerns. On your own, the process can appear like too much. With our expert help, 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 using plantation shutters in your residence? Create a cohesive appearance by adding them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style made from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are fast to clean with a moist cloth. And their finish remains beautiful while standing up to water and steam. As an additional advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfy no matter the season.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and economical window treatments. If you favor the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds provide a similar look for less. And they have many of the same pluses, like easy cleaning and weathering water.

For a more modern style, 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 gives you the ability to raise and lower your window treatments with a tap of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

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

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 the perfect amount of color with a full collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re on the hunt for farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to select from a full range of popular neutrals for just the right appearance.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has many windows or faces strong sunlight, ease the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with moveable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes deliver excellent light control, while the sheer fabrics change 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 option. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that keep air at the windows, which are one of your residence’s top sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will seem more comfortable no matter the season. Installing honeycomb shades throughout your house might even help you lower your energy expenses.

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 humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can handle it without becoming misshapen or fading over the years.
