An unlined, linen relaxed Roman shade filters the west light coming into this kitchen without weighing it down. The urge to do more can be tempting, but in many cases you need to consider what is most important. Highlight the window or allow the beauty of the space to be enhanced by the drapery. Kitchens with great style don't required a big bang on the window. If your space is covered in cupboards, then wow factor comes from the window treatment. Finding balance for your kitchen and style is easy to do with fabric.
Window Treatments are sometimes the toughest commitment to make to a room. I believe if we follow our instincts and do what's right for the space, a person can't go wrong. If we find the right treatment, we won't second guess ourselves. Drapery or shades warm and cool a room physically and emotionally, let your needs to guide you.
