The kitchen is often the hub of the home and the type of kitchen curtain you put up will have an influence the ambience of this busy room. Below you’ll find some curtain ideas that can brighten up a dull kitchen and give it a fresh new look without breaking the bank.

Before you consider the type of curtain you’d like, you need to take into account the area where the kitchen curtain is going to be placed. If they are going to be over a sink, you want to be sure the type of fabric you choose can handle getting splashed with water. You want something in a light fabric that will dry out quickly and not leave a water mark.

If the kitchen window treatments are going to be above a work area, then you’ll want to make sure the fabric isn’t going to show up the greasy marks and food splatters that are inevitable in this section of the room. Getting a kitchen curtain in a fabric that is machine washable is a necessity here, or you could use a roller blind that is treated with that waterproof type of finish that can be easily wiped over and doesn’t leave stains.

There is so much work done in the kitchen; preparing and cooking meals; serving them out and often eating in the room as well, that you want to select designs or fabrics that allow plenty of light into the room. It’s also much nicer working in a light sunny room than a dark dingy one.
