The kitchen is probably the most used room in your Chattanooga home, so you want to enjoy spending time in it. Aside from being functional, you want an interior design you’ll love for years to come. Custom window coverings are an important part of that design.
Today, we wanted to share some of our favorite kitchen projects so far to inspire your next kitchen renovation.
A warm & welcoming kitchen in North Chattanooga
The owners of this beautiful home wanted us to design custom cushions for their banquette and Roman shades for their French doors to create an inviting kitchen. Their all-white kitchen has an open, airy feeling, and we wanted to add to that atmosphere with the soft goods.
We started with the banquette, which is a great addition to any breakfast nook. We chose cording in the same material as the primary fabric for a clean, tailored look. And we added tufting to the back to add charm and texture to the space.
We selected Roman shades for the French doors because they add privacy and light control. The striped fabric from Schumacher is an instant classic, and we love that the soft blue adds a splash of color to the kitchen.
Newly renovated kitchen in Chattanooga capitalizes on its lake view
When these homeowners renovated their kitchen, they wanted custom window treatments that would not block the view. They also asked for a comfortable, stylish cushion for their window seat. And they wanted the window coverings and cushion to have a classic look to complement their new white cabinets and wood countertops.
We love designing Roman shades for a kitchen because they soften the harsh edges of the cabinets and appliances. And they look great with an inside mount, which is essential because many kitchens don’t have much wall space around their windows.
With a flat fold, the bottom of the Roman shade remains straight and doesn’t detract from the kitchen’s lake views. Then, we carefully matched the pattern to make it look like all the shades were made from one continuous piece of fabric.
We added a Dacron wrapping to the window seat cushion for a rounder, softer look that was more comfortable to sit on. Dacron is a synthetic upholstery batting that gives cushions a fuller appearance. We also added welting in a fabric that complements the primary material for a custom look.
Bright & airy flat fold Roman shades in a Tudor-style home in North Chattanooga
The owners added a lot of Italian flair to their 1910s Tudor-style home, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to fabricate window coverings for the kitchen. The kitchen had a bright aesthetic that we wanted to capture in the window treatment design. We installed an inside-mounted, flat fold Roman shade in the homeowners’ favorite fabric. The shades beautifully showcase the home’s window trim.
Because of the homeowners’ height and the window placement over the sink, we wanted to ensure the window coverings were easy to reach and operate. Although motorizing the Roman shades was an option, our clients opted for a continuous cord loop. We extended the cord to the bottom of the window to ensure the homeowners could reach it easily.
In the breakfast nook, we installed interior shutters to add a mix of soft and hard window treatments. Interior shutters, also known as plantation shutters, give a classic, elevated look to any style home. And they’re a fantastic option for Chattanooga kitchens because they can withstand water splashes and are easy to clean with a damp cloth.
Motorized window coverings for a high-tech kitchen in Ringgold, Georgia
We love partnering with interior designers in the area. The outgoing homeowners of this beautiful home chose one of Chattanooga’s top interior designers, Dawn D. Totty, who brought us on board to execute her vision for the kitchen’s window treatments.
The homeowners wanted us to motorize the window coverings to add smart-home capabilities to their newly renovated kitchen. We created a Roman shade for the window sink using Carole Fabric’s Ideal Scenery in “Ocean.” The fabric complemented the home’s gray kitchen cabinets and marble countertops and added a pop of color to the room.
Dawn D. Totty and the homeowners wanted to tie the breakfast nook into the rest of the kitchen. So we designed cornices in the same fabric as the Roman shade over the sink, which created a cohesive look and hid the Vignette shades when they were fully raised.
Natural woven Roman shades add warmth in Rocky Face, Georgia
We were thrilled when the owner of this Rocky Face, GA home asked us to design window treatments for their kitchen. Previously, we had fabricated draperies for their living room and were grateful for the opportunity to return. We created woven wood Roman shades for their kitchen, powder room, and bedroom for a cohesive look.
We chose Roman shades for the kitchen because they look great on their own, and the homeowners wanted window coverings that did not take up much visual space. The flat fold option that we designed do not need much styling after being raised or lowered, which was essential because the shades over the kitchen sink were challenging to reach.
Kitchens have a lot of hard surfaces, like countertops, sinks, and appliances. The woven wood shades are made from natural materials that soften those hard surfaces and add character and warmth to the room.
A modern kitchen in North Chattanooga
The most popular design style in the Chattanooga area is transitional, so we do not have the opportunity to create window treatments for modern-style homes often. But we loved taking on the challenge in this home.
The homeowner is very eccentric, loves abstract design, and wanted to soften the hard surfaces in the kitchen with fabric. We designed Roman shades over the sink and for her glass door. For the door, we opted to use a solid fabric so as not to distract from the bright yellow hue.
This North Chattanooga kitchen gets quite a bit of sunlight at times, so we installed a roller shade to block some of the light. We then layered it with a cornice to hide the headrail and create a cohesive look throughout the room.
A gorgeous mountain view in a Jasper Highlands kitchen
We had the opportunity to work directly with the owner of this home in Jasper Highlands to design window treatments for her kitchen. Our client has a great eye and picked all the finishings for the house. She also did all the interior decorating. We were delighted to work with her!
This home has the most stunning mountain views from the breakfast nook. And the homeowner wanted to add fashionable details to her window treatments without blocking the view. So we designed relaxed Roman shades to frame the windows. We then mimicked the crystals on the light fixtures by adding fringe to the shades, which created a subtly cohesive look. The trim also added length to the Roman shades without hindering the homeowner’s mountain views.
