There are many styles of curtain designs to choose from when redecorating a kitchen.
How do you know which design is right for your kitchen? Luckily, many of the styles will fit with almost any décor.
The important piece is the color and texture of the curtain itself. Here's some guidelines on what curtain designs you
may want to pick for your kitchen décor.
Tiered curtains are one of your classic kitchen curtain designs, with a top valance and then a valance type
curtain that hangs from the middle of the window so that light comes in from the top, but the bottom part can be closed
for privacy. This type of curtain goes best with a country style kitchen and can also go with rooster, grapes or almost
any kind of theme. If you pick the right fabric, like a lacy or sheer it can also look good with a Victorian or even
Swag curtains are similar to the tiered curtain designs except the top portion is longer on the edges so it
hangs down around the frame of the window. This type goes well with the same designs as the tiered but is a little fancier in design.
A Scarf type curtain drapes over the top of the window on a fancy rod and hangs down the sides, usually to the floor.
This type of curtain usually requires a heavier fabric and goes well with a heavier type of kitchen style such as an Italian
kitchen or perhaps a modern style kitchen. Scarfs are usually used in a living room or dining room, but if you have a combo
style kitchen you could probably incorporate them in there as well.
Valance style curtain designs are simple curtains that slide into a rod and hang down from the top of the window
about 2 feet or so. This style is great if you want to let in lots of light from your window. You can buy a valance in
many types of fabric which allow it to coordinate with almost any kitchen design.
Panels hang down the side of the window either to the bottom of the sill or the floor.
You can have panels that hang on a rod, or tab top panels. These styles of curtain designs
can work in almost any kitchen depending on the fabric you choose. For a modern kitchen, a more modern type of fabric in a
solid color will work better. A country kitchen might look nice with a gingham or flowered design. Some of the tab top
curtains can be dressed up with little buttons on the tabs to further enhance your décor
