Best Window Treatments for Kitchens: Shutters, Shades and Blinds

Between the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is unlike any other area in your Pittsburgh home. Because it’s one of the most used areas in your house for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why a ready-made window treatment won’t do for one-of-a-kind areas like kitchens.

When creating new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the spot in your decision-making process. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that could get wet or splattered as you wash dishes? Or is it in a safer area, where fabric shades would be a fantastic option?

You won’t be estimating on making the ideal kitchen window treatments when you partner with Louver Shop of Pittsburgh. With years of expertise, our design pros know what will work best in your gorgeous residence and its unique concerns. Without help, the process can feel overwhelming. With our expert help, it’s simple and even a good time to design the right solution for your kitchen.

Here are a few of our designers’ selections 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 use over your kitchen sink. As an added bonus, they don’t need much maintenance to keep them looking fantastic or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

Already using plantation shutters in your residence? Develop a consistent look by installing them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we suggest going with a style made from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a damp cloth. And their finish retains its beauty while resisting water and steam. As an additional advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfy no matter the season.


Blinds are one of the most adaptable and economical window treatments. If you love the look of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds deliver a close look for less. And they provide the majority of the same advantages, like simple cleaning and weathering water.

For a more modern appearance, there’s mini blinds. Available in a full range of modern metallic finishes, mini blinds are simple to clean and even easier to use.

You can make both styles of custom blinds smart by selecting PowerView®, which lets you move your window treatments with a tap of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For spaces in your kitchen where water and food splatters aren’t a problem, there are many kinds of fabric and natural shades to flatter your home’s special style.

Roman Shades

With tidy pleats and bright colors to pick from, Roman shades incorporate a contemporary twist in your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better choice than curtains that get old quickly.

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

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has lots of windows or faces bright sunlight, soften the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a a collective window treatment, with adjustable vanes that are suspended between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics change harsh sunlight into a soft glow.

Cellular Shades

If you want the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the appearance of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic choice. These shades incorporate honeycomb-shaped chambers that keep air at the windows, which are one of your home’s main sources of lost energy. Subsequently, your kitchen will appear comfier no matter the weather. Having honeycomb shades across your home could even help you lower your energy expenses.

Woven Wood Shades

If your fully white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These contemporary kitchen window treatments use grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you get too much light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without losing their shape or becoming faded over time.
