Window coverings are one of the most challenging design elements to choose for your home. Not only do you have the option between blinds and curtains, but there are so many styles, materials, lengths, features, and uses for each that it can quickly feel overwhelming to choose the right one for your kitchen windows. To help you narrow down the search, we’re going to cover some of our favorites in each category and give examples of some of the most popular styles.
Aesthetic and Useful Kitchen Blinds
If you’re looking for a window covering that doesn’t take up room in the space, then blinds might be the ideal option for you. They are simple, easy to use, and keep the area looking minimal and clean. Blinds come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials. Here are a few of our favorites.
At just a little over 18 dollars, you can have a stunning woven bamboo blind made to fit your specific window size. These blinds by SelectBlinds come in 17 colors and could suit almost any style. Although they don’t keep all the light out, they have light filtering qualities and will make you feel safe and unseen through your windows.
These blinds by Blinds.com are natural two-inch wooden planks lined up to create an elegant look. They come in 32 colors options and will suit almost any design style you’re trying to achieve. However, these are much pricier than the previous bamboo options. At a little over 52 dollars, these blinds might take up a considerable chunk of your kitchen budget.
Wood blinds are great, but if you’d like to have a more farmhouse or cottage style to your kitchen, you should take a look at these lovely riviera striped linen/cotton roman shades by Pottery Barn. This company is known for its on-trend items, and these blinds are no different. The stripes running down the middle come in four colors: charcoal, navy, porcelain blue, and sandalwood. Just be aware that these are pricy!
Sometimes you need blinds that will block out your neighbor’s wondering eyes as well as the sun.

They also have a light filtering setting, so you can block out curious neighbors while still letting in some sunshine.
