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

Amid the water, steam and grease from food prep, your kitchen is unique from any other area in your Memphis residence. Since it’s one of the most popular spots in your house for parties and family time, you’ll want it to look its smartest. That’s why an off-the-shelf window treatment won’t do for special rooms like kitchens.

When choosing new window treatments, you’ll want to keep the location in mind. Will it be an over-the-sink kitchen window treatment that may get wet or splattered as you clean dishes? Or is it in a more secure location, where fabric shades would be a fantastic option?

You won’t be taking a chance on customizing the ideal kitchen window treatments when you call Louver Shop of Memphis. With years of experience, our design consultants know what will work best in your special home and its special concerns. On your own, the process can seem stressful. With our expert help, it’s simple and even fun to create the right style for your kitchen.

Here are a couple of our designers’ picks for best window treatments for kitchens.

Best Over-the-Sink Kitchen Window Treatments

Fast-clean plantation shutters and blinds are timeless window treatment styles to use 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 have plantation shutters in your residence? Create a cohesive appearance by installing them in your kitchen. When selecting plantation shutters for your kitchen, we advise selecting a style that incorporates premium polymer, like our exclusive LouverWood® Shutters.

These custom shutters are easy to clean with a moist cloth. And their finish stays beautiful while weathering water and steam. As an extra advantage, they insulate up to three times better than wood shutters, which helps keep your kitchen comfortable no matter the season.


Blinds are one of the most versatile and affordable window treatments. If you like the appearance 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 perks, including easy cleaning and withstanding water.

For a more modern appearance, there’s mini blinds. Available in a complete collection of modern metallic finishes, mini blinds are quick to clean and even easier to use.

You can make both types of custom blinds smart by selecting 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 spaces in your kitchen where moisture and food splatters aren’t a problem, there are many types of fabric and natural shades to highlight your residence’s special look.

Roman Shades

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

If your kitchen is white or includes a lot of stainless steel, you’ll be able to have just the right 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 choose from a full range of popular neutrals for just the right look.

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

Sheer Shades

If your kitchen has a lot of windows or faces strong sunlight, soften 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 deliver superior light control, while the sheer fabrics change bright sunlight into a welcoming glow.

Cellular Shades

If you are after the energy efficiency of plantation shutters but want the style of a shade in your kitchen, cellular shades are a fantastic solution. These shades have honeycomb-shaped chambers that trap air at the windows, which are one of your home’s main sources of lost energy. Due to this, your kitchen will appear cozier no matter the season. Installing honeycomb shades across your residence could even help you lower your utility costs.

Woven Wood Shades

If your all-white or stainless-steel kitchen is feeling a little cold, make it feel warmer with woven wood shades[AM13]. These modern kitchen window treatments use grass, reeds and wood for light filtration and enduring performance. If you have a lot of light or heat in your kitchen, these natural materials can handle it without becoming misshapen or becoming faded over the years.
