Kitchen Roman Shades
Roman Shades and Roman Blinds are two terms that are often used interchangeably. The type of window treatment called Roman Shades are known by its soft draping appearance, but it is similar to blinds that are pulled open and shut. Each fold in the Roman Shades is almost like a slat in the blind. As you pull the shades or blinds open, each fabric fold rises into the folds above and the result is draping fabric that gives any room an elegant feel.

There is a vast selection of kitchen window treatments out there for you to choose from and all you have to do is pick one. Easier said than done though, no? It is the huge selection that makes it so hard to pick only one! If only we had more than one kitchen! The trick to choosing the best kitchen window treatments is to think outside the box. There is no reason to stick yourself with the conventional and plain window treatments, go wild and try something new, you might just like it.
Drapes can set off any window. Whether it is a bedroom or day room, the choice of curtains helps to create a certain ambiance in a room. Kitchen curtains compliment the decor created by the cabinets, table tops, counter tops, and flooring, while also creating privacy and blocking beams of blinding sunlight. Kitchen curtains come in several sizes, styles and prints to match any theme.

Today we’ll discuss various curtains and draperies for your kitchen. I decided to write the post about curtains, because they are the main item in the kitchen decor.
Choose the color of the curtains Look at your kitchen and see what colors are used. The perfect choice would be the same color as the sofa, table cloth or the chairs. If you would like to have the curtains colored in beige, brown or red that differes from your kitchen accessories that would also be ok. Just be attentive and don’t use more than three colors in your decor. You can use more if you are an interior designer:)
Kitchen Window Valance
Perhaps the kitchen would have no room for an elaborate window treatment setup. Aside from being a fire hazard it would only be impractical. Long curtains would be a nuisance in daily kitchen activities and would probably get stained with sauces and other food items. However, this does not mean that homeowners cannot have any kind of drapery for the kitchen windows. Most people know that curtains do a lot in setting the atmosphere of the room. It basically boils down to choosing those that are most fitting for the room’s theme decor. A kitchen valence is a top drapery treatment that is a lot shorter than curtains. Usually, the length of valances measure 10 inches to 18 inches.

Kitchen curtains are simple, elegant pieces of decorative window treatments that can transform a dull boring kitchen into something with nuance. With that said it can be a little confusing judging what kind of curtains will work best in your kitchen. If you have a lot of passing traffic throughout the day you will want to allow some light to come through in the day hours to brighten the room without having to waste electricity.
