These Shutters, Shades and Blinds Are the Best Window Treatments for Kitchens

Between the water, steam and grease from preparing food, your kitchen is distinct from any other space in your San Antonio home. Since it’s one of the most popular places in your house 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 special rooms like kitchens.

When designing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location under consideration. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or greasy as you rinse dishes? Or is it in a safer location, where fabric shades would be a fantastic option?

You won’t be guessing on making the best kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of San Antonio. With years of knowledge, our design pros know what will work best in your special home and its unique concerns. Without help, the process can seem like too much. With our expert help, it’s simple and even a good time to make the best option for your kitchen.

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

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Easy-clean plantation shutters and blinds are timeless window treatment styles to install over your kitchen sink. As an extra benefit, they don’t need much maintenance to keep them looking excellent or working like they should.

Plantation Shutters

Already enjoying plantation shutters in your house? Create a cohesive look by adding them in your kitchen. When choosing plantation shutters for your kitchen, we suggest choosing a style created from fine polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are simple to clean with a moist cloth. And their finish retains its beauty while standing up to water and steam. As an extra plus, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfy no matter the weather.


Blinds are one of the most flexible and reasonably priced window treatments. If you love the style of plantation shutters but are on a reduced budget, faux wood blinds deliver a similar look for less. And they offer the majority of the same perks, such as easy cleaning and resisting water.

For a more updated style, there’s mini blinds. Available in a full range of up-to-date metallic finishes, mini blinds are fast to clean and even faster to use.

You can make both kinds of custom blinds smart by adding PowerView®, which gives you the ability to move your window treatments with a touch of your phone.

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas for the Remainder of Your Room

For parts of your kitchen where water and food splatters aren’t a issue, there are many varieties of fabric and natural shades to complement your home’s unique style.

Roman Shades

With neat pleats and stylish colors to select from, Roman shades deliver a classic look to your kitchen. They’re better than simple roller shades and a better option than curtains that become dated rapidly.

If your kitchen is white or has a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to have an ideal 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 wide range of favorite neutrals for just the right style.

As an added safety feature, our Roman shades don’t come with rear cords, making them a wise option for families with small children and pets.

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has lots of windows or attracts bright sunlight, fade the glare with sheer shades. Our sheer shades are a two-in-one window treatment, with rotatable vanes that are sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. The vanes give outstanding light control, while the sheer fabrics diffuse glaring sunlight into a welcoming glow.

Cellular Shades

If you love the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but are seeking the look of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a wise choice. These shades feature honeycomb-shaped chambers that keep air at the windows, which are one of your house’s number one sources of energy leaks. Subsequently, your kitchen will appear cozier no matter the weather. Using honeycomb shades all over your house might even help you decrease your heating and cooling bills.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little stark, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These up-to-date kitchen window treatments incorporate grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and long-term performance. If you get too much light or warmth in your kitchen, these natural materials can withstand it without losing their shape or losing their color over the years.
