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

Amid the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is distinct from any other room in your Columbia home. Since it’s one of the most popular areas in your residence for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look stunning. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t do for one-of-a-kind spaces like kitchens.

When choosing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the area in mind. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that might get wet or food stains as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more secure area, where fabric shades would be a great solution?

You won’t be estimating on creating the right kitchen window treatments when you work with Louver Shop of Columbia. With years of experience, our design consultants know what will fit best in your beautiful residence and its one-of-a-kind issues. Without help, the process can appear stressful. With our expert advice, it’s simple and even fun to make the ideal style for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Easy-clean plantation shutters and blinds are ageless window treatment styles to install over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working well.

Plantation Shutters

Already enjoying plantation shutters in your home? Make a united appearance by installing them in your kitchen. When choosing plantation shutters for your kitchen, we recommend going with 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 retains its beauty while standing up to water and steam. As an added 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 flexible and affordable window treatments. If you love the style of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds offer a comparable look for less. And they offer many of the same pluses, such as simple cleaning and weathering water.

For a more modern style, there’s mini blinds. Available in a complete collection of contemporary metallic finishes, mini blinds are easy to clean and even faster to use.

You can make both types of custom blinds smart by choosing PowerView®, which allows you to move your window treatments with a swipe of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For areas in your kitchen where water and food splatters aren’t a concern, there are many styles of fabric and natural shades to complement your house’s unique style.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and stylish colors to select from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re better than simple roller shades and a wiser choice than curtains that go out of style fast.

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to add just the right 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 look.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has many windows or faces strong sunlight, soften the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a an incorporated window treatment, with rotatable vanes that are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics transform bright sunlight into a soft glow.

Cellular Shades

If you want the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic option. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that hold on to air at the windows, which are one of your home’s top sources of energy leaks. Due to this, your kitchen will seem more comfortable no matter the season. Using honeycomb shades across your house might even help you lower your energy bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your fully white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, 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 a lot of light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without losing their shape or becoming faded over the years.
