When it comes to the kitchen, most Americans want a space that is functional and at the same time appealing to the senses. Not just any window treatment above the sink will do. Check out these contemporary kitchen window treatment ideas for your home.

Plantation Shutters For Kitchen Windows

With their defined lines and ultimate light control, plantation shutters make for excellent window treatments in the kitchen. These kitchen shutters allow you to cover your windows without losing the architecture of the window - or the view. They're the modern statement you've been looking to make in your kitchen.

Plantation shutters are available in two modern styles: faux wood and real wood.

Faux Wood

Faux wood plantation shutters like Polywood® are the perfect kitchen shutters because they are moisture proof. So all the steam from washing dishes and cooking over the stove does not affect their integrity one bit. Not only that, but Polywood plantation shutters are made from a wood synthetic that is painted with UV inhibitors. This ensures that the shutter never warps or cracks, and the paint color never fades.

The best part of Polywood plantation shutters for kitchen windows?

Even if the blender goes out of control and splatters its contents all over, these shutters can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Accidents happen. But you'll never see a stain with Polywood! Blinds and shades cannot deliver that kind of stain resistance.

Not to mention, these contemporary kitchen shutters can be custom designed to fit your window perfectly. And when you order Polywood shutters for your kitchen, you can be confident that these are the most energy efficient window treatments in the US.

Real Wood
