Both the kitchen and bathroom can sometimes feel like they miss personality because of the white tiles and stainless or granite countertops that dominate the design of the room. Your window treatments can actually help you switch things up by making a bold statement and bringing your design to life.
Be aware that your kitchen and bathroom are pretty specific spaces and shouldn’t be treated the same way as the rest of your home. These functional spaces have a big particularity that shouldn’t be overlooked when choosing your window treatments. Let’s learn more about it now!
What do these two rooms have in common? They both can suffer from humidity, splashes (from water, soap, oil, etc.) which means window treatments for these rooms need to be pretty durable.
Consider the following before making your decision.
For the kitchen: make sure to know if your kitchen window is located in the splash zone where it can be easily stained with oil and food.
For the bathroom, take into consideration your privacy on how much your window reveals.
For both your kitchen and your bathroom, you will want to have a material that is durable, waterproof, easy to clean, moist-resistant, and handle temperature changes.
Let’s take a look at your options.
Faux Wood Blinds & Shutters
Faux wood blinds are a favorite for the kitchen and bathroom. They are versatile and go with a lot of different styles and also allow more privacy when needed.
Shutters are another great alternative that brings more depth to the space. They are a timeless and classic choice.
We love the Faux Wood effect that brings a rustic yet natural feel that will soften the entire room while still being really convenient to wash and maintain. A little bit of water and soap will make it look brand new. It will also be very durable in high temperatures and humid places which is crucial for your kitchen and bathroom. With faux wood, you won’t take the risk to have the wood discoloring and fading which will help you to keep it longer.
Roller shades are a great option if you want to go for a modern look or add more colors to your interior. We particularly love the fact they don’t take up much space of the window when rolled up, letting all the light to shine in. Vinyl roller shades are easy to wash and maintain. Perfect for your kitchen and bathroom. Let your personality shine when choosing your roller shades or go for a minimalist style with neutral colors.
Roman shades are a very popular and adored window treatment choice because of the stunning look they provide. If you want to go for roman shades for your bathroom or kitchen you need to make sure to select a fabric that will survive food and grease spots as well as high humidity. You can also apply a stain repellent to the fabric to make it easier to wipe off any stain.
Now you know what to pay attention to! A polished window treatment will really help you to make a big statement in rooms that sometimes lack personality. Do not overlook this part of your design. Ready to dress up your kitchen and bathroom windows? If you need any additional help, let us know!
