Warming Up The Kitchen

When I added the open shelving in the kitchen and painted the ceiling I had plans to also paint the cabinets and add new window coverings. Other things too priority and the kitchen fell by the wayside. When LEVOLOR contacted me, I was excited to push the kitchen back to the top of my to-do list. I knew that adding bamboo shades would warm up my kitchen!

Natural blinds add warmth to a space!

You all know I am a huge fan of bringing natural things inside since I wrote a whole book about it (Natural Accents), so I knew I wanted natural shades. Jute, bamboo, grasses, and reeds are great materials to consider. I ended up going with bamboo shades. You can see the exact one I chose on the LEVOLOR site here.

The reason I switched from the white plastic blinds that were here when we moved in to curtains was due to the cords. I hated the look of the dangling cords and they can be a safety concern as well. I LOVE that these don’t have and rods or cords. Simple pull them down or gently push back up. SO NICE!

I liked the fact that the old curtains were white and thin enough to allow some light in even when they were closed to give us privacy. I didn’t like that the white color blended in with the walls and did nothing visually for the space. I decided to choose a white semi-transparent liner so I could have the best of both. When pulled down, they provide privacy, warmth, and still allow light through. They do have other options in case you want to darken a room like in a bedroom.

I am really happy with what these shades have done for the space and I am considering them for the basement windows as well.
