Portals To The Great Outdoors

Windows let in pure sunlight that eases getting ready your food, sets the mood and also gives rise to a bright and open space in the heart of your kitchen.

Rays from the sun are always sought-after, so keep the window treatments very low-key. Use soft cottons, lace or other organic fabrics. Hold back from any heavy material or dark colours at the windows. Select cottage window curtains that allow rich light into your home as well as lending to the overall cottage style furnishings and colour palette. The only exception being when you require privacy or energy efficiency.

Window treatments are a front-and-centre feature in a room and are for the most part one of the first things to grab the eye when walking into a living space for the first time. They are able to rule the tone and mood of a room by the way they filter, block or let in the light from the outdoors. Because of their moving impact it’s vital to choose the right style, design, and colour of your curtains.212734S01

Cottage windows are your view to your garden. Avoid fussy treatments that take away from your experience. These over sized windows open to the good-looking natural features of your landscape. Windows in cottage kitchens are often left bare to show off their great casings, windowsills and wood mouldings.

Cottage style windows are never made in a complex shape or decorated with fancy patterns. Prints and floral cotton fabrics are lightweight to allow light and fresh breezes into your kitchen while adding colour and visual delight to the overall cottage theme. Cottage decorating is all about creating simplicity and a relaxing mood.

Cottage Fabrics

Choosing the right fabrics plays a key role in styling your cottage kitchen. Cottage style is closely linked to nature. Fabrics may have grand floral patterns with the colour scheme taken right from your garden. Therefore, green, yellow, pink, pale blue and white are the first choice picks in any cottage kitchen. Any time-honoured fabric can be cut and crafted into charming curtains. As well, vintage fabrics or barkcloth are wonderful choices for covering your cottage windows as well.
