A breakfast nook is a great addition to any home. It's a warm, comfortable space to sip on coffee, catch up on news and start your day right. Lots of breakfast nooks have windows, and such a cozy spot deserves equally cozy window treatments. You have lots of options to consider, so think about what's most important for your breakfast nook to have. Is it lots of natural light, or something that complements the rest of your kitchen?
But don’t forget that the kitchen is also one of the busiest rooms in your house! Cooking, homework and many other common tasks are often done somewhere in the kitchen. Things can also get messy, especially if you like to cook. You need window treatments that are beautiful, sturdy and easy to maintain.

Plantation Shutters Offer Crisp Beauty and Easy Maintenance
Plantation shutters are an obvious choice. Their clean look 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 worried 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 innovative material can insulate breakfast nook windows from heat, humidity and even harsh sunlight. LouverWood is easy to clean and maintain, making them perfect for spaces you frequently use.
Try a Simple Roller Shade for Soft Simplicity
For those who prefer fabrics, you don’t have to worry about having fewer options. There are lots 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 fit closely into the windowpane. This minimizes the space it takes up while ensuring a well-fitted final look.
Custom Designer Roller Shades fit the bill wonderfully. They come with multiple options for simplified or even motorized controls, minimizing the space they take up. And with hundreds of fabric choices to compare, you can find 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. Choosing a window treatment with high 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 forms an insulating layer against heat and cold. You can still allow bright sunlight while reducing how much it heats up your breakfast nook.
Experiment with Shutters Using Our Visualizer Tool
