A breakfast nook is a wonderful addition to any home. It's a warm, comfortable space to sip on coffee, catch up on news and start your day right. Many breakfast nooks have windows, and such a cozy spot deserves equally cozy window treatments. You have loads of options to consider, so think about what's most essential for your breakfast nook to have. Is it plenty of natural light, or something that suits the rest of your kitchen?
But remember that the kitchen is also one of the busiest rooms in your house! Cooking, homework and a lot of other common tasks are often done somewhere in the kitchen. Things can also get messy, particularly if you love to cook. You need window treatments that are stunning, sturdy and easy to maintain.

Plantation Shutters Offer Crisp Beauty and Easy Maintenance
Plantation shutters are a clear choice. Their clean look and low-maintenance design makes them a fantastic option for your breakfast nook. But aren’t wooden plantation shutters going to warp and peel from all the steam and heat? If you prefer the look of wooden shutters but are stressed about maintaining them, you’ll be happy to know there’s a perfect compromise.
LouverWood® shutters are made from durable PVC instead of hardwood. This inventive material can protect breakfast nook windows from heat, humidity and even strong sunlight. LouverWood is easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for spaces you constantly use.
Try a Simple Roller Shade for Soft Simplicity
For those who favor fabrics, you don’t have to worry about having fewer options. There are loads of fabric window treatments that are easy to clean and use, even in the often-smaller space of a breakfast nook. For example, roller shades can fit closely into the windowpane. This lessens the space it takes up while ensuring a well-fitted final look.
Custom Designer Roller Shades fit the bill splendidly. They come with several options for simplified or even mechanized controls, minimizing the space they take up. And with hundreds of fabric options to compare, you can discover the perfect combination of color and opacity.
Sheer Fabrics Scatter Bright Morning Sunlight
The softness of morning sunlight makes any breakfast nook feel like a cozy dream. But this sunlight can also raise the temperature of an already-warm kitchen. Choosing a window treatment with increased energy efficiency can help keep your monthly energy bills as low as possible. These priorities make honeycomb shades the way to go.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are some of the most energy-efficient window treatments around. Honeycomb pleats hold pockets of air inside, which creates an insulating layer against heat and cold. You can still allow bright sunlight while limiting how much it heats up your breakfast nook.
Experiment with Shutters Using Our Visualizer Tool
A terrific way to compare plantation shutters is through our helpful visualizer tool. You can pick a sample photo or even upload one of your own home. Peruse shutter styles, colors and other possibilities until you reach the perfect look for your breakfast nook.
