Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas: Monochromatic and Minimalistic Style

Kitchen Window Treatment Ideas: Monochromatic and Minimalistic Style

Monochromatic color schemes work to provide unity and streamline design to help create the sought after minimalistic look, so it’s no surprise that the style is as popular as ever in modern kitchens.

Adding the right window treatment can help tie the whole room together, and add a pop of color to give a space unique character. Let’s look at a couple of examples:

Wood Blinds for the Kitchen

The use of wooden blinds in this kitchen allows the homeowner the ability to control the amount of light allowed into the room and its direction, while adding a rich feel that warms up this modern minimalistic kitchen without detracting from the overall atmosphere. Faux wood or composite blinds are a great option for high-humidity areas like your kitchen. They’re moisture-resistant and that helps prevent warping. Plus, they come in a variety of stains and colors. You can choose white, or a variety of wood tones with a faux wood grain to compliment your existing wood, or add contrast like this kitchen does while maintaining a monochromatic and minimalistic style.


Sheer Draperies

Sheer draperies are a beautiful addition to any space. They visually soften the overall look, and allow in plenty of natural light. Even while closed, they allow in light that has been diffused for an even more gentle feel. Keep in mind if you have fabric in a dining space, you want to ensure that it is easy-to-clean – especially if you ever have toddlers as meal guests. In this neutral space, the white sheers contrast beautifully and the design adds visual interest without being overwhelming.


Solar and Roller Shades

Because kitchens and dining rooms are places we want to feel positive, awake, and productive, natural light is something we always want to maintain. (Bedrooms on the other hand should always aim to have as close to blackout options as possible for ideal sleep.) Solar and roller shades are a wonderful option! Not only do they fit the minimalist style through their sleek design alone, but you can choose from a huge variety of colors and patterns. You can prevent harmful UV rays from hitting you while you cook or eat, while still maintaining plenty of natural light. This kitchen’s monochromatic and minimalist style is complemented beautifully with white solar shades. The color comes simply from the addition of plants (which is good for your mental health!), and therefore easy to change up seasonally.


Woven Natural Shades

While these add some visual interest, natural woven shades are a huge favorite for kitchens while maintaining a sleek profile. Their texture comes from the fact they’re made with sustainable grasses, jute, and bamboo. They add plenty of visual warmth and their rich texture makes them a big client favorite. Much like wooden blinds, they come in a wide variety of natural colors and textures so they’re easy to incorporate into almost any design.
