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

Between the water, steam and grease from cooking, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Camden residence. As it’s one of the most used spots in your house for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why a premade window treatment won’t be right for special rooms like kitchens.

When choosing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location in your decision-making process. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that could get wet or food stains as you wash dishes? Or is it in a more secure spot, where fabric shades would be an excellent fit?

You won’t be guessing on creating the ideal kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of New Jersey. With years of experience, our design pros know what will match best in your special home and its special concerns. By yourself, the process can seem overwhelming. With our expert help, it’s easy and even a good time to create the right style for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Simple-clean plantation shutters and blinds are ageless window treatment styles to hang over your kitchen sink. As an added bonus, they don’t need extensive maintenance to keep them looking fantastic or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

Already enjoying plantation shutters in your home? Make a unified appearance by installing them in your kitchen. When choosing plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise selecting a style created from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish stays beautiful 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 year-round.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and affordable window treatments. If you like the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, faux wood blinds offer a close look for less. And they offer the majority of the same pluses, including easy cleaning and weathering water.

For a more modern look, there’s mini blinds. Available in a full selection of contemporary metallic finishes, mini blinds are quick to clean and even faster to use.

You can make both types of custom blinds smart by adding PowerView®, which allows you to open and close your window treatments with a touch of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Remainder of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where steam and food splatters aren’t a issue, there are many varieties of fabric and natural shades to complement your home’s exclusive look.

Roman Shades

With crisp pleats and bold colors to choose from, Roman shades incorporate a contemporary twist in your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a smarter option than curtains that go out of style quickly.

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to add the perfect amount of color with a full collection of fabrics, patterns and textures. Or, if you’re on the hunt for farmhouse kitchen window treatments, you’ll be able to select from a wide range of desired neutrals for just the right appearance.

As an extra safety feature, our Roman shades don’t come with rear cords, making them a good option for houses with little children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has many windows or attracts blinding sunlight, ease the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a a collective window treatment, with rotatable vanes that are suspended between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics transform harsh sunlight into a soft glow.

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the appearance of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a good option. These shades use honeycomb-shaped chambers that retain air at the windows, which are one of your house’s top sources of lost energy. Due to this, your kitchen will feel comfier year-round. Having honeycomb shades across your home could even help you decrease your utility bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, add warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These contemporary kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you experience excessive light or humidity in your kitchen, these natural materials can weather it without becoming misshapen or fading over time.
