Plantation Shutters Offer Crisp Beauty and Easy Maintenance

Plantation shutters are an obvious choice. Their tidy appearance and low-maintenance design makes them a great option for your breakfast nook. But aren’t wooden plantation shutters going to warp and peel from all the steam and heat? If you like the look of wooden shutters but are nervous about maintaining them, you’ll be happy to know there’s a perfect compromise.

LouverWood® shutters are made from resilient PVC instead of hardwood. This inventive material can protect breakfast nook windows from heat, humidity and even strong sunlight. LouverWood is easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for spaces you frequently use.

Try a Simple Roller Shade for Soft Simplicity

For those who like fabrics, you don’t have to fret about having fewer choices. There are loads of fabric window treatments that are easy to clean and use, even in the often-smaller space of a breakfast nook. For example, roller shades can sit closely inside the windowpane. This lessens the space it takes up while ensuring a well-fitted final look.

Custom Designer Roller Shades fit the bill wonderfully. They come with several options for simplified or even motorized controls, minimizing the space they take up. And with hundreds of fabric choices to compare, you can discover the perfect mix of color and opacity.

Sheer Fabrics Scatter Bright Morning Sunlight

The softness of morning sunlight makes any breakfast nook feel like a cozy dream. But this sunlight can also increase the temperature of an already-warm kitchen. Selecting a window treatment with higher energy efficiency can help keep your monthly energy bills as low as possible. These priorities make honeycomb shades the way to go.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are some of the most energy-efficient window treatments available. Honeycomb pleats trap pockets of air inside, which creates an insulating layer against heat and cold. You can still allow bright sunlight while reducing how much it heats up your breakfast nook.
