If you’ve recently updated the replacement windows on your Huntington Beach, CA home, you need to be sure that you finish them with the right kind of window treatments. Not just any old drapes or curtains will do for kitchen windows. When shopping for kitchen window treatments that offer flexible control over the amount of natural light, are secure, provide flexible control over privacy and outdoor views, are durable, offer heat and cold control, give your home protection against furniture and décor fading with UV protection, and, most importantly are easy to clean and maintain.
How can you possibly find window treatments that tick all these boxes? It’s a lot easier than you think. Look into shutters. From plantation shutters to café, modern to classic, shutters look great in any kitchen. But with so many different kinds of shutters, how do you choose the right kind for your kitchen? You can start with style. Kitchens should look nice but not be too fancy. Color is very important. White is always a good choice for kitchen coverings, as white brightens up a room while blending in or offering a vibrant contrast. You can also go with a more contrasting color like red or yellow, or choose a classic neutral like brown, black or beige.
Check out café shutters, as they offer a classic kitchen look that’s stylish but not too fancy, and also offer great function. Café shutters cover the lower portion of the window for privacy but leave the upper portion open for light and ventilation. Café shutters come in different sizes and shapes to fit any window or kitchen style. You can have the shutters cover the bottom third, or you can add a mid-rail and have the shutters go all the way up to the top of the window as upper and lower louvres can then be operated independently.
Don’t forget to get the right kind of material. Your kitchen sees lots of daily use, so your kitchen coverings need to stand up to spills, splashes, grease, and lingering smells, so look into vinyl or faux wood. These materials are completely waterproof so there’s no need to worry about splashes. They’re also super easy to clean and maintain, and only need a quick wipe with a damp cloth every once in a while. If your coverings will be next to a sink, get bi-folding paneled shutters or foldable blinds so you can fold them away from the sink when in use to avoid too much splashing and wetness.
