Kitchen curtains are an essential element to finish off the kitchen decoration. Unfortunately, they often tend to get forgotten. However, once you have them, you will see the difference you can make by framing your windows with the correct window treatment. Here are five tips to help you make the right decision.
1. Choose a simple and informal style
Elegant trim and tails and elaborate curtain headings are best suited for formal rooms like the living room or bedroom. Keep curtains simple in a kitchen so they are more in keeping with the style of the room.
2. Add impact with fabric design
While we may hesitate to choose (and get stuck) with colored cabinets, curtains are a great way to add some color to a kitchen. Choose a fabric design and colors that go well with the rest of the kitchen elements, whether they are contemporary, classic or country.
3. Keep them short
Long-sill curtains generally work best with casual style in a kitchen, although full-length curtains may be appropriate if you have a window in your kitchen dining area and use it for dining. A cafe-style curtain is also great if you want a little privacy but don’t want to block out too much light.
4. make sure they’re washable
Kitchen curtains are likely to get much dirtier than curtains in other rooms in your home with all the steam and grease in the air. They will need to be cleaned frequently, so make it easier by choosing a curtain or fabric that is easily machine washable rather than one that requires you to go to the dry cleaner.
5. Think about security
Fabrics that hang over a cooking area are not ideal. If you have a window near a kitchen, consider whether curtains are a safe option. It may be better with a simple roller blind that will stay away from flames or hot pans.
