Choosing a curtain for a kitchen is less obvious than in other parts of the house.
Here are some basic tips to get you rolling.
Curtains are available in a wide choice of fabric. You need to determine your needs in order to guide your research:
- Need for privacy: orient yourself towards heavy fabrics or blackout linings.
- Need for decoration/design: orient yourself towards light and airy fabrics.
- Curtains near the sink: prefer materials that are easily washable (cotton, linen), as cooking smells will cling to them.
- Curtains near the stove: prefer curtains treated against fire (i.e. if they catch on fire, the flame should extinguish itself). You can also install an awning.
If your kitchen already has a theme and/or color, you should take care to seamlessly integrate the curtains. Match them to the tiles (including wall tiles), counters, furniture, etc.
If you have tiles of neutral colors, you should keep this neutrality with your curtains. Focus your choice towards beige, white or pastel colors.
If you can, select a range of color samples that you like and check if they match the rest of your kitchen.
When it comes to your curtains’ patterns, once again, it depends on your vision of what feel you want to give your kitchen. Everything is possible:
- Stripes (equal or asymmetrical)
- Flowery (jacquard weaving, embroidery, etc.)
- Geometric shapes
You have a wide range of options on the market with suppliers of fabrics and curtains that can give you the desired final touch for your kitchen, whether modern, artistic or retro.
