Walls and Window Treatments

1. Walls

Finishing touches for your kitchen can be practical as well as beautiful.

PAINT

A versatile and an easy-to-clean choice. Semigloss paint provides a higher sheen level than the matte look of washable flat latex.

CERAMIC TILE BACKSPLASH

Protects while it accents.

WALLBOARDS AND PANELLING

Add warmth and texture to walls. Wainscotting with a chair rail is a traditional look for the kitchen and can be painted to complement wallpaper or paint.

Good to know:

The way you finish your walls can affect the perceived size of your kitchen. Lighter colours make a room look larger. Vertical wallpaper patterns make a ceiling look higher. Textured paint and embossed, paintable wallpaper can hide imperfections. Mixing wallcoverings and paint surfaces creates visual interest, and borders can define a room.

2. Window Treatments

Kitchen window treatments provide insulation, control lighting and privacy. When making your selection, consider how easy it is to clean.

BLINDS, SHUTTERS AND SHADES

Offer maximum control of sunlight and provide privacy.

WOOD BLINDS

An ideal way to complement your cabinetry.

FABRIC PANELS AND VALANCES

Can diffuse light, depending on sheerness. Sheers and panels add a soft effect to hard window treatments and are easily changed.

Good to know:

Curtain hardware can add a unique, custom touch, especially when coordinated with with cabinet hardware and other finishes.
