Homeowners often spend more time in their kitchens than in any other rooms in their homes—at least when they’re awake. As a result, when you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, your eyes get drawn to every feature, including the blinds, shades, or drapes that may seem like have been there forever. If this sounds like your home, perhaps an autumn makeover could be exactly what’s needed to freshen up this space for the new year.
At Window Fashions of Northern California, we have two locations in Fairfield and Fremont, CA, with the full selection of Hunter Douglas window coverings, and our design team can walk you through the options in our showroom or your home with an in-person consultation. But what are the best kitchen window coverings, and which ones speak to the season?
Special Considerations For Kitchen Window Coverings
Kitchen windows are often installed by sinks or stoves, exposing them to frequent heat and humidity. This situation also happens in bathrooms or in rooms that have fireplaces. Selecting window coverings that can withstand high temperatures and moisture in these intense spaces makes the most sense. And since food and liquid splatters can get on them, the materials and fabrics should also be easy to clean.
We recommend water-resistant window coverings that will not warp, discolor, peel, or crack for kitchens. These three options below stand up to the challenge and can be wiped clean with dust cloths and damp rags.
EverWood® Faux Wood Blinds
Hunter Douglas EverWood® Faux Wood Blinds have a classic appeal and control the light with your choice of 2” or 2-½” slats. They look like natural wood—ask us about TruGrain® realistic wood-grain patterns or painted tones. Everwood® Faux Wood Blinds are also GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®.
Once they’re installed, you will be confident that these handsome blinds will retain their good looks for years to come – the Performance Plus™ guarantees that they will not warp, bow, fade, or turn yellow.
These alternative wood blinds are available for windows measuring from 7-¾” to 96” wide and 12” to 120” high. Silver, caramel, and almond tones are ideal for an Hunter Douglas fall window treatment that looks great all year long.
Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Vinyl Shutters
These easy-to-care-for, elegant modern shutters resist humidity and stand up exceptionally to sunlight. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Vinyl Shutters are water- and UV-resistant, so your kitchen will be protected in the fall and the rest of the year. The unique finish resembles a finely painted shutter, but the Polysatin™ material is more durable than wood.
With interior resin blocks and interior aluminum bracing construction, these shutters are built to last. The louvers come in 2-½”, 3-½”, and 4-½” sizes, in neutral white and off-white tones. They fit kitchen windows that measure from 7” to 289” wide and 8-⅞” to 120” high.
Aluminum Metal Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds
Sleek and durable, Hunter Douglas Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds come in over 70 colors with slat sizes in ½”, 1”, or 2”. They are easily controlled with the LiteRise™ push/pull system, the push-button SimpleLift™ system, or PowerView® Automation and fit windows sized from 7-¾” to 144” wide and 6” to 126” high. This fall, we are drawn to the universal appeal of nickel, bronze, and brown tones. Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds also are available in pearlescent colors, stonelike textures, and more options to complete your kitchen look.
