We moved here, in our new home, in the middle of December. As you know, we are slowly getting things situated in each room. We have our home decor room getting fuller by the day as we empty our storage unit. I LOVE that room and am so grateful we have the extra space. And, I’m so grateful that Deb got it all set up for me. The family room is put together, as well as the kitchen and the laundry room. We have 3 large windows above the sink and two large windows on the stove wall. While I LOVE our trim work around the windows and doors, I felt the kitchen needed something else. So… we hung curtains in the kitchen to give it a cozier feeling. And it worked.
I know some of you are probably so against this idea of hanging curtains in the kitchen. But I was craving a softer feeling around the windows. They are the same linen textured curtains that we hung in the family room and bathroom. I was thinking of maybe getting something different, but I guess why mess with a good thing.
These particular curtains come in several different colors and several lengths. These are the off-white color. They are airy and give just enough privacy to blur the inside of our home from the road. However, we probably won’t ever close them. They are also sold in a pair which is very rare these days. Most curtains are sold separately and are very pricey. The price of these curtains are excellent and they are great quality.
I wanted a very simple curtain rod in a brushed gold color. And since we have the three big windows above the sink, we had to get multiple sizes. We found these rods off of Amazon and couldn’t be happier with them. They have a simple finial on the ends which I love.. and they come in 6 different colors. They are EXCELLENT quality. These curtain rods came with a tape measure, cheat sheet to hang them, a few extra screws in case of an emergency, and a pencil. Basically, they come with everything you need to hang them.
A few people over on social media were adamant about me NOT hanging anything on the windows. I love how the kitchen feels since we hung the curtains, and I believe they changed their minds after seeing them. The curtains gave just the amount of coziness that I was trying to achieve in this space. And, made everything seem softer. Deb walked in after I hung them up and commented how nice they look. (Deb hangs the brackets on the wall and I actually hang the curtains.)
