Having a clean and well organize kitchen is very important. This is the place in your home where food is prepared and therefore if your kitchen is a mess, your health and the rest of the family members might be at risk. But beyond sanitation, it is also equally important to beautify and make your kitchen look attractive and pleasing to the eye.
Enhancing your kitchen does not require you to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars to do it. By just simply putting a kitchen curtain to your window, it will absolutely change how your kitchen looks. But before you rush yourself and buy a new set of curtain, you must consider few things first. One must think of certain factors like the fabric, style, colors and patterns that you will be using to accentuate your window. Here are some few tips that might help you decide.
Fabric to use.
More than anything else, one should consider the type of fabric that it will be using for its curtain. Since your window is situated at your kitchen, most probably it is more prone to dirt and stain. The material of your choice should be easy to wash and light weight to avoid hassle. It should be something that can allow air passage into your kitchen and give it enough luminosity. You can either use cotton, rayon, linen and silk but cotton would be the best choice among the others.
Type of Curtain.
You must decide also what type of curtain does your kitchen window needs. Usually windows are situated above a vanity top or a sink. Tier and café style are widely used by many people. It is a two piece of curtain which includes the top and the bottom with a break in between to allow just enough amounts of sunshine and air to come in. On the other hand, kitchen valances are tiny curtain which covers only upper part of the window. Curtain of this type is ideal especially if you are planning to place your drape near the sink. And if you want to totally block the entire window, you can opt for a roman blinds style. Though it can be lifted up, curtain of this kind is not highly recommended because it can give a darker tone to your kitchen.
Color and Design.
Now that you have an idea of what type and curtain material that you should be using, it is necessary as well to take into consideration the color and design. In choosing for the right color, you must check first the wall paint of your kitchen, these two should appropriately match. If you are unsure of what color to choose, you can go for light and neutral colors. White and beige is the safest shade to use. Design Selection is also imperative to create a balance in your kitchen. Depending on the look that you want to achieve, you can go from simple to highly complicated designs.
As our elders would always say, more than any part of your home, your kitchen should be given with so much importance and attention. The way your kitchen looks defines who and what you are.
