Window Treatments

slabickimNovember 19, 2012
I am having some difficulty in selecting window treatments style and color for my windows. I've uploaded a picture of kitchen/bath windows. Any suggestions would be appreciated -- Thanks.

Beautiful home. For the bath, I would look into one of the fabric shades that can be raised and lowered by remote so that it is easy to do (don't have to climb in and out of the tub) and would not block the beautiful window except when necessary. In the kitchen, i would use a very minimal type roman shade in a neutral that picks up your colors. Something simple such as this.

What a tasteful kitchen and pretty rock garden view! I agree with Brickwood Builders that a tailored Roman shade would suit your kitchen. However, I like the idea of introducing some color into your neutral room.The red shade in this inspiration photo is a real standout.

Take a look at the Hunter Douglas Pirouette. I think it would look really nice on the windows. You have a very nice view so you should get a window treatment that looks nice, has variable light control, privacy, and allows you to see your view. The 5 inch folds will provide more view when open then other window treatments out there.

For the bath:
Depends of your needs. Do you need privacy? Do you need to keep light out a little or a lot? Fabric shades are pretty, but you'll have to find a fabric where the moisture doesn't make it sag. A LOT of fabrics will sag, ESPECIALLY if your window is long, in a high-moisture area (like a bathroom.) I'd go w/ the HD Pirouettes, they are made w/ fabric that is moisture-resistant. You'll be able to have them down to soften light but still allow it to come through, or close them for privacy. If you still want the softness/color/pattern fabric shades can offer, consider fixed valances that cover the functioning shades. (By fixed I mean non-functioning).
For the Kitchen:
Depends on your needs again. Lots of sun that comes through? Do you need privacy? I would again go w/ valances or roman shades; both can be either fixed or functioning.

I have tentatively decided to go with a spruce tailored roman shade for the kitchen, I think it draws nicely off of the base cabinets which are silver/spruce. Would anyone be kind enough to offer a suggestion for the living room (color/style), which is across the open kitchen. Attached is an image of a section of the living room doors/windows.

Restoration hardware is showcasing linen roman shades. A natural l
Whit linen for the bath and a natural linen for the kitchen. Or go bare in the kitchen.
