The window coverings on your Cary, NC home play a big part in your décor and your home’s function. This is especially true when it comes to your kitchen window coverings. When cooking, cleaning, and washing dishes, you want to not only be pleased with the lighting or shading that comes from the windows, but also rest assured that the covering can hold up to the daily wear and tear that goes with a kitchen.
If you’re getting ready to shop for kitchen window coverings, you should keep these questions in mind to give you inspiration and guidance:
- Do I Want My Window Covering To Match My Molding? If you have painted walls with different colored molding around the ceilings, floors, and windows, you will probably want to match your window coverings to the color of the molding for a seamless and sophisticated feel.
- Do I Want My Window Covering Match My Flooring? While you don’t want to go too far with matching, it’s a good idea to have your window coverings fit in with your floor coloring. For example, if you have white molding, dark blue walls and warm golden flooring, your windows would look great with warm, golden color window coverings. This seamless design helps tie the entire room together without being too ostentatious. Also, having corresponding window coverings and flooring will help the room look bigger as it will draw the eyes upwards.
- Should I Match My Cabinets? This is another instance in which the secondary color of the kitchen space, like the molding or floor, should compliment the window coverings. If you have cabinets with more than one color you should get window coverings that match the cabinet’s secondary colors. Be careful that you do not match your coverings to the main color of your cabinets, as that would be too overwhelming for the eyes. However, if you have neutral cabinets in browns, whites or black, your window coverings can be pretty much any color you want.
- What About Countertops? Matching window treatments and countertops can be tricky. Theoretically, if your countertops match with your cabinets, they will therefore match your window coverings. However, if they are the same color as your cabinets you do not want to have your window coverings be that color as that would be too much. But, if your countertops and your cabinets complement each other, then you can emphasize either color with your window covering.
Finding the right window coverings for your kitchen windows is really all about how you want the room to look and feel. Kitchens can get away with being busy or complex, but be careful you don’t go too far with it. You can always go simple with your main pieces, like the window coverings and cabinets, and add interest with smaller elements like artwork or countertop décor.
