A breakfast nook is a great addition to any home. It's a warm, comfortable place to sip on coffee, catch up on news and start your day right. Lots of breakfast nooks have windows, and such a cozy spot warrants equally cozy window treatments. You have lots of options to contemplate, so think about what's most essential for your breakfast nook to have. Is it lots of natural light, or something that harmonizes with the rest of your kitchen?
But remember that the kitchen is also one of the busiest rooms in your house! Cooking, homework and various other common tasks are frequently done somewhere in the kitchen. Things can also get messy, particularly if you like to cook. You need window treatments that are stunning, heavy-duty and easy to maintain.

Plantation Shutters Offer Crisp Beauty and Easy Maintenance
Plantation shutters are a popular choice. Their clean appearance and low-maintenance design makes them a perfect option for your breakfast nook. But aren’t wooden plantation shutters going to warp and peel from all the steam and heat? If you like the appearance of wooden shutters but are concerned about maintaining them, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a perfect compromise.
LouverWood® shutters are made from resilient PVC instead of hardwood. This inventive material can protect breakfast nook windows from heat, humidity and even strong sunlight. LouverWood is easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for spaces you frequently use.
Try a Simple Roller Shade for Soft Simplicity
For those who favor fabrics, you don’t have to fret about having fewer choices. There are loads of fabric window treatments that are easy to clean and use, even in the often-smaller space of a breakfast nook. For example, roller shades can fit closely inside the windowpane. This reduces the space it takes up while ensuring a well-fitted final look.
Custom Designer Roller Shades fit the bill wonderfully. They come with multiple options for simplified or even mechanized controls, minimizing the space they take up. And with hundreds of fabric choices to compare, you can discover the perfect mix of color and opacity.
Sheer Fabrics Scatter Bright Morning Sunlight
The gentleness of morning sunlight makes any breakfast nook seem like a cozy dream. But this sunlight can also raise the temperature of an already-warm kitchen. Selecting a window treatment with increased energy efficiency can help keep your monthly energy bills as low as possible. These priorities make honeycomb shades the way to go.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are some of the most energy-efficient window treatments around. Honeycomb pleats trap pockets of air inside, which creates an insulating layer against heat and cold. You can still allow bright sunlight while decreasing how much it warms up your breakfast nook.
Experiment with Shutters Using Our Visualizer Tool
A great way to compare plantation shutters is through our helpful visualizer tool. You can select a sample photo or even upload one of your own home. Peruse shutter styles, colors and other possibilities until you reach the perfect look for your breakfast nook.
