The kitchen window cannot be ignored in kitchen decorating and designing. Window treatments can add to the style and character of a room just by making it an attractive backdrop for your room or using it as the focal point. Your kitchen window has many possibilities .
Your window can bring in positive energy through light, especially sunlight. Control the primary source of light and air by the type of window treatment you use. Just the right amount of light could add a feeling of comfort to your kitchen. When you choose light fabric material over the window, and avoid dark colours, fresh air is allowed to circulation easily into the kitchen.
If you are concerned about privacy, your window treatment can also obscure view and add to privacy in the kitchen whenever desired. For windows that don’t need any treatment, a simple pot plant would do to accent the view from the window and thus allow all the light possible.

Finally, remember your colour scheme as it will ensure continuity of colour from the ceiling to the window and to the floor. Your window treatment can turn out to be both functional and beautiful.
