Kitchen Replacement Window Treatments

You can’t leave your space unfinished if you’ve recently added replacement windows to your Winnipeg, MB kitchen. You need to finish your windows by adding some window treatments. However, not just any old drapes or curtains will do for kitchen windows. When shopping for kitchen window treatments that:  

  • Are easy to clean and maintain  
  • Give better heat and cold control  
  • Offer flexible control over the amount of natural light  
  • Provide flexible control over privacy and outdoor views  
  • Are durable  
  • Help cut down on afternoon or morning glare 
  • Offer protection against furniture and décor fading with UV protection  

 

You also can’t forget about durability and style when it comes to your kitchen replacement window treatments.  

 

Be sure to think about materials. Your kitchen sees lots of daily use, so your kitchen coverings need to stand up to spills, splashes, grease, and lingering smells, so look into vinyl or faux wood. These materials are completely waterproof so there’s no need to worry about splashes. They’re also super easy to clean and maintain, and only need a quick wipe with a damp cloth every once in a while. If your coverings will be next to a sink, get bi-folding paneled shutters or foldable blinds so you can fold them away from the sink when in use to avoid too much splashing and wetness.  

 

Color is also very important. White is always a good choice for kitchen coverings, as white brightens up a room while blending in or offering a vibrant contrast. You can also go with a more contrasting color like red or yellow, or choose a classic neutral like brown, black or beige.   

 

If you want a specific recommendation, try looking into shutters. From plantation shutters to café, modern to classic, shutters look great in any kitchen. But with so many different kinds of shutters, how do you choose the right kind for your kitchen? You can start with style. Kitchens should look nice but not be too fancy. Café style shutters fit the bill perfectly. They offer a classic kitchen look that’s stylish but not too fancy, and also offer great function. Café shutters cover the lower portion of the window for privacy but leave the upper portion open for light and ventilation. Café shutters come in different sizes and shapes to fit any window or kitchen style. You can have the shutters cover the bottom third, or you can add a mid-rail and have the shutters go all the way up to the top of the window as upper and lower louvres can then be operated independently.
