Kitchen Curtains

By: Max Bellamy

When it comes to selecting curtains for your kitchen, practicality is of utmost important. Not only does the material have to match the counter tops and the cabinets it also has to be light and easy to clean and maintain.

Selecting the right pattern, texture, design and color of curtain is also equally important. Your curtains should match the theme of the kitchen. For instance, if you have a country style kitchen you can't have new age design curtains.

Color is another important decision. If you want to optimize the sunlight entering your kitchen then select a white or a light colored curtain. This will let the sunlight filter through it and block the glare. You will have to be careful while selecting light colors. For instance if you put up a light blue curtain, your kitchen will look blue when the curtains are drawn. The color of the light will change depending on the weather. It is a good idea to test the curtain material of your choice on a sunny day to see if you like the effect and like it enough for it to be a part of your kitchen. Dark, heavy materials will make your kitchen look small and choose them only if you want to block sunlight from your kitchen. Light curtains are easy to wash and therefore easy to maintain. Dark curtains may hide stains but if they are heavy, washing them will be labor intensive.

Tailor the curtains based on the size of the windows. Long flowing curtains may work well in your living room but may ruin the look of your kitchen. Big curtains will draw all attention and the hard work you put into designing your kitchen may be lost.
