I am working with a client online helping with her kitchen redesign:
We have worked on many home projects together over the years. She recently wrote, “ My next project is our kitchen. It is stuck in the 80’s and desperately needs an update!” I think it looks very pretty and just needs a little refreshing. I will share the whole project with you which includes new paint colors, flooring, lighting, granite countertops and backsplash when the room is completed soon.
For now, I wanted to show you her existing window treatments:
I asked her if I could use her photo as an example and she said that it was fine. I wanted to point out that the upper window valance was in style a few years back, but now is considered a dated look. But don’t worry- because it is such an easy fix!
Option one- If you just take the valance down and leave the window bare, the room will look better right away! Open windows are classic- plus more sunlight is let into the room!
There are also a couple other options I am going to suggest for her windows. Option two is roman shades:
Option three- I think window curtain panels would be an ideal choice. She has the room on the wall and it would be an opportunity to bring in color and softness with fabric:
Gorgeous! Remember when buying curtain panels, it is usually best to double their width by sewing two panels together for each side. You can read more details here.
These are just a few examples to use instead of a window valance. Maybe you should hang on to them- they will probably be back in style in a few years!
I will keep you updated on our progress in the kitchen! Thanks for stopping by!
