How To Choose New Blinds For Your Newly Remodeled Kitchen

Ray Moreno

Does your kitchen remodeling project include the window treatments? If you need new kitchen blinds, take a look at the questions to ask before you buy custom creations.

Where Are the Kitchen Windows?

The type of window treatment you choose depends on the placement of the windows in your soon-to-be new kitchen. As you start to select custom blinds or other window treatment options, consider the following:

  1. The sink. Moisture from the kitchen sink could damage delicate fabrics or support mold growth on some types of materials. You'll need a water-resistant blind that is easy to clean in this damp area.
  2. The stove. Grease, steam, and heat can damage some types of window treatments. Avoid anything that drapes or can easily catch on fire near the stove or oven. An easy to clean option is also a top choice for the stove or oven space.
  3. The light. Along with the moisture and heat hazards, you also need to consider the overall light in the newly remodeled room. A kitchen with minimal interior lighting needs window treatments that allow extra light in.

The window placement will guide the material or style of the blinds/treatments. After you factor this in, the next step is to consider the design palette of your new kitchen.

What Style and Color Palette Is the Kitchen?

Even though the kitchen is a functional space, the renovation also includes an aesthetic upgrade. The window treatments play a primary role in the kitchen's design. When you choose window coverings, consider décor elements such as the following:

  1. Color. The color of each window treatment should complement more than just the walls. Select a color palette for the blinds based on the walls, trim, floors, cabinets, countertops, tile (backsplash), and fixtures or appliances.
  2. Pattern. Is the kitchen neutral or bland? Spice up the room with a bold pattern or complex print. A fabric-covered shade or other type of window treatment gives you the chance to play with patterns and create a stylized design.
  3. Texture. The fabric or material makeup of the window treatments is more than functional. A textured treatment can add depth and style to your new kitchen. Create textures with fabrics, wood, or other similar options.

If you're not sure which type of custom blinds best meet your kitchen's design needs, discuss the alternatives with a professional. A window treatment contractor can help you to select the best blinds for your kitchen remodeling project.
