Curtains Tips and Ideas
1. Choose a Simple, Informal Style

2. Add Impact with the Fabric Design
While we might hesitate to choose (and be stuck with)
cabinets, curtains are a great way to add some color to a kitchen.
Choose a fabric design and colors which go well with the other elements
in the kitchen whether they are contemporary, classic or country.
3. Keep them Short
Sill length curtains are generally a better match for
style in a kitchen although full length curtains may be appropriate if
you have a window in the eating area of your kitchen and use this for
dining. A cafe style curtain is also great if you would like some

will need to be cleaned frequently so make it easier for yourself by
choosing a curtain or fabric which is easily washed in the washing
machine rather than one which needs you to make a trip to the dry
5. Think Safety
Fabrics dangling over a cooking area are not ideal. If
you have a
window near a cooker then consider whether curtains are a safe option.
You may be better with a simple roller blind which will stay well away
from the flames or hot pans.
