Best Window Treatments for Kitchens: Shutters, Shades and Blinds

Between the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Austin home. As it’s one of the most popular areas in your home for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look stunning. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t do for one-of-a-kind rooms like kitchens.

When creating new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the spot under consideration. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that could get wet or food stains as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more secure spot, where fabric shades would be an ideal solution?

You won’t be estimating on customizing the best kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of Austin. With years of expertise, our design pros know what will work best in your gorgeous residence and its special challenges. On your own, the process can seem like too much. With our expert advice, it’s easy and even a good time to create the right style for your kitchen.

Here are several of our designers’ favorites for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Simple-clean plantation shutters and blinds are timeless window treatment styles to install over your kitchen sink. As an extra benefit, they don’t need much maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working well.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your home? Develop a united style by having them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we suggest selecting a style made from premium polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are fast to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish stays beautiful while standing up to water and steam. As an extra bonus, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfortable year-round.


Blinds are one of the most flexible and economical window treatments. If you like the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds deliver a similar look for less. And they have many of the same benefits, including simple cleaning and weathering water.

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

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

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Remainder of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where moisture and food splatters aren’t a problem, there are many styles of fabric and natural shades to complement your house’s exclusive appearance.

Roman Shades

With tidy pleats and bright colors to select from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better option than curtains that become dated fast.

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

As a bonus safety feature, our Roman shades don’t use rear cords, making them a good selection for homes with young children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has many windows or attracts bright sunlight, fade the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a an incorporated window treatment, with moveable vanes that are suspended between two pieces of fabric. The vanes deliver outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics transform bright sunlight into a soft glow.

Cellular Shades

If you love the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are looking for the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a wise choice. These shades use honeycomb-shaped chambers that retain air at the windows, which are one of your home’s top sources of lost energy. As a result, your kitchen will feel comfier year-round. Having honeycomb shades all over your residence may even help you reduce your heating and cooling expenses.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, add warmth with woven wood shades[AM13]. These modern kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you have too much light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can handle it without losing their shape or fading over time.
