Between the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is unlike any other room in your home. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your home for gatherings and family time, you’ll want it to look its best. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t do for unique rooms like kitchens.

When designing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep location in mind. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that could get wet or greasy as you wash dishes? Or is it in a safer spot, where fabric shades would be an ideal solution?

You won’t be guessing on creating the right kitchen window treatments when you work with Louver Shop. With years of experience, our design consultants know what will work best in your one-of-a-kind home and its unique challenges. On your own, the process can feel stressful and overwhelming. With our expert assistance, it’s easy and even enjoyable to design the right solution for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Easy-clean plantation shutters and blinds are classic window treatment styles to use over your kitchen sink. Plus, they don’t require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking great or working well.

Plantation Shutters

Already have plantation shutters in your home? Create a cohesive style by adding them in your kitchen. When using plantation shutters in your kitchen, we recommend selecting a style made from quality polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

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


Blinds are one of the most versatile and affordable window treatments. If you love the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, faux wood blinds offer a similar look for less. And they offer many of the same benefits, including easy cleaning and resisting water.

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

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

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Rest of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where moisture and food splatters aren’t a concern, there’s a wide variety of fabric and natural shades to complement your home’s unique style.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and bold colors to choose from, Roman shades bring a modern twist to your kitchen. They’re a step up from simple roller shades and a better choice than curtains that go out of style quickly.

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

As an added safety feature, our Roman shades don’t have rear cords, making them a smart choice for homes with small children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has a lot of windows or attracts strong sunlight, soften that light with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with adjustable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes provide superior light control, while the sheer fabrics diffuse bright sunlight into a warm glow.

Cellular Shades

If you love the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a smart choice. These shades have honeycomb-shaped chambers that trap air at the windows, which are one of your home’s main sources of energy loss. As a result, your kitchen will feel more comfortable year-round. Using honeycomb shades across your home may even help you reduce your heating and cooling bill.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, add warmth with woven wood shades. These modern kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you get a lot of light or heat in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without losing their shape or fading over time.
