Inspiring curtain design ideas for your kitchen

Kitchens are often the heart of the home and where we spend a lot of our time, so it’s natural to want to make this space look as good as it possibly can. Curtains make a great choice for dressing the windows in this room as they allow you to add colour, pattern and texture, helping to bring this functional space to life.


We’ve collated our top tips when choosing curtains for your kitchen windows. Read on for expert advice and browse a range of inspirational homes.

More practical than you think

When it comes to choosing window dressings for your kitchen, you need to make sure they’re as practical as possible to cope with the demands of the environment. While many automatically rule out curtains for this room, as long as your windows don’t sit directly above your cooking area, they make a great choice. They are easy to care for and add a lovely warmth and texture that is hard to get from other window dressings. To keep them in tip-top condition, simply use the upholstery attachment on a regular vacuum or get them dry cleaned.

Fabrics that pair with your personality

One of the best things about choosing curtains for your kitchen is that you’ll be able to pick from hundreds of fabric designs. We’ve beautiful florals for those looking to add that finishing touch to a country-style kitchen, contemporary prints to complement sleek spaces, and a variety of plains and textures too. Your advisor will bring all the samples for you to browse through at home.

A co-ordinated space

Our curtains can be made to fit wherever you need them, so if your kitchen has a patio or back door you can choose to have this dressed in the same (or a co-ordinating) fabric as your windows. We can also cover unsightly storage spaces, like the area under the sink, with a single curtain - as seen in this bright kitchen-diner. And you can even choose matching or contrasting cushion covers. Whatever you need for your kitchen, our wide range of fabrics and accessories will help you create a space that works for you.

Keep it cosy

Kitchen-diners might be all the rage, but having a large open-space like this can make your kitchen draughty and cold – not ideal when you want to sit down to a warming meal at the end of the day. Curtains help block out unwanted chills, and can also be made with thermal lining to really keep your kitchen cosy. And not only that, if your kitchen-diner has particularly large windows you’ll be pleased to know that our made-to-measure curtains can be made to fit even the widest of spaces.

Customise your curtains for a truly unique look

As well as being made-to-measure to your exact requirements, our curtains can be made in a variety of header types and customised with accessories. There’s wave and eyelet headings for those that like a modern finish, and pinch and pencil pleats for a more traditional effect. We also offer tracks and valances, poles and finials, tie-backs and holdbacks and different lining options. Plus, our range includes voiles which you can use alongside regular curtains to maintain privacy. So much choice can get overwhelming, which is why our advisors are on-hand to guide you through the options. Just book your free home appointment.
