Are you tired of seeing your naked neighbour?
You love your new home. The two car garage you always wanted, the perfect landscaping, the hardwood floors, and most of all, that view! That beautiful view from your picturesque kitchen window is enough to transport you onto the majestic mountaintop oasis where dirty dishes no longer exist. Suddenly, something flies into the corner of your fantasy vision…yep, it’s your not-so-majestic, yet very naked new neighbor. Do you wave or pretend you don’t see him? With no blinds or window treatments, those are the two choices you’ll ever have! Don’t keep putting yourself in this position, let us help you enjoy your view and your privacy. So, now we must ask, “what do I consider when choosing kitchen window solutions?”
In order to choose the best window treatment solution for your kitchen, it is important to consider the overall function and style. Where is the window located? Which way does the window face? Is it a privacy issue or would you like to maintain the view? Can you reach the window? Not only are these questions that will help you choose the right window treatment, but our experts will also be asking similar questions to help determine your needs.
For example, if the window is above a sink, you may want to consider something that is easy to clean. Sure, fabric window treatments are beautiful, but have you considered beautiful fabric stained with spaghetti sauce? Perhaps you might want to consider an easy-to-wipe blind with the tilt option to direct light. These blinds provide privacy and allow for a view while being offered in varieties such as wood, faux wood or shutters.
If you want the “open or shut” option, a roller shade would give complete privacy when needed. Good for kitchens, some of the fabrics are even wipeable. Of course, light-filtering or room-darkening blinds are always available, as well.
There are so many things to think about when considering window solutions. Let us help by educating you on product so you can make an informed decision within your budget. Let us take control of your new awkward neighbor situation, so you can keep enjoying that new view.
