If you’re a fan of breezy, bohemian-inspired interiors, then Barn & Willow has the right shades for you. Composed of smooth, natural Linen, both the Relaxed Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Off-White and in Natural will create a neutral, free-flowing look for your kitchen. For an organic-looking kitchen display that will block out light and keep cold air from coming in, try the Blackout Roller Shade in Cream or Sisal to insulate your windows in true boho style.

Modern Minimalist

If simple spaces filled with clean-lined silhouettes are more your speed, then you probably consider yourself a minimalist.  The Flat Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Mist Gray and in Optic White look modern yet sophisticated at the same time. For kitchen shades with a bit of oomph that won’t stray from a monochrome décor scheme, try the Blackout Roller Shades in Vanilla to bring some Scandi-inspired style to your window scene.

Casual Industrial

If you consider yourself an industrial design enthusiast, then you gravitate towards rooms with laidback decor and functional design elements. To bring a dash of drama to a casual industrial kitchen, try the Relaxed Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Shale or in Stone Gray to create a dark but versatile window display. Or, if you’d like to maximize the efficiency of your kitchen windows, consider the Blackout Roller Shades in Nickel to insulate your windows while blocking out unwanted sunlight.

Classic Traditionalists

Traditionalists rejoice: Barn & Willow has the perfect kitchen shades for you! To create an elegant but unfussy window display, try the Cascade Organic Cotton Roman Shade in Birch or in Storm Gray for a clean and classic kitchen look. To bring depth and dimension to a traditional color palette, consider the Blackout Roller Shades in Polygon Charcoal or Polygon Pepper to incorporate some pattern play into the scene.

Eclectic Maximalist

If you’re a maximalist lover, then there’s no doubt you’ll want your windows to double as a focal point in your kitchen. For an eye-catching window display that won’t overpower the rest of your kitchen décor, consider Pleated Velvet Roman Shade in Teal or Sapphire to bring a pop of color to the scene. Or, to transform your kitchen windows as the centerpiece of the space, go for roller shades in a bold motif, like the Blackout Roller Shades in Pisces Amethyst or Patch Sage to make a big impact in a small space.
