Lighten Up Your Kitchen With Curtain Panels and Valences

In most cases, if you only have a window above your kitchen window you cannot really do a whole lot to bring in natural lighting. You can still add a valance to the curtain over the sink and add to small sheer panels that can be tied to the side to provide a bit more appeal.

On the other hand, if you have other windows in the kitchen, you are in luck. You have all kinds of options. Panel curtains are ones that are one long piece of material that normally flow to the floor. You can use one or more panel according to the look you wish. If you use several panels, you can actually have a nice flowing appeal that will enhance the beauty of your kitchen. Now add a valance and you are creating an elegant look and appeal.

Panel curtains can be used for sliding doors, patio doors, or just a door to the outside and add more beauty to the kitchen. Yes, you can even add a valance. If you have an old wooden or metal door that goes to the patio, you can easily use panel curtains and give your kitchen an entire new look.

Of course, if you only have a window above the sink and a backdoor, you will not be able to enjoy all the natural lighting, but you can spruce up your kitchen. If you do have more windows, you may also want to consider remote control curtains, which will open at a touch of a button and give you all kinds of natural lighting.
