Valances kitchen curtains are different from living room or bedroom window treatments. A kitchen, by its very nature, is a less private area. Although kitchen windows might have blinds, they are less likely to be in frequent use other than to control sunlight. Kitchen curtains are often half curtains combined with valances. Kitchens are a production area of many homes, where food is prepared. In country homes, there is a connection between kitchen and garden. Window treatments in busy kitchens are often bright, informal and cheerful in keeping with the nature of activities frequently common to kitchen areas.

Natural Valance Curtain for Kitchen
Ophelia & Co.
What we like: Rough-hewn texture
What we don’t like: Completely unlined
Not so great for: A clean-lined look
Perfect for: A natural look
Simple and affordable, this curtain comes in natural brown, antique white, vintage white, or brown. Additionally, it has two size options. Iron-safe so you won’t have to worry about your valance looking crinkled in daylight, it will create a welcoming look. Pair it with mid-to-dark wood shades for even more of a cozy vibe.
Woven loosely with 100% cotton burlap for a genuine and versatile finish, we love the rough-hewn texture. Although it feels softer than regular jute burlap, it will still bring depth and dimension to your kitchen. However, the unlined aspect does mean it won’t offer much privacy, which could be an issue if you share outdoor space.
Glam Valance Curtain for Kitchen
What we like: Unique design
What we don’t like: Dry-clean only
Not so great for: If you want something low maintenance
Perfect for: A glam kitchen
Guaranteed to turn heads and impress guests, this gorgeous valance is unique and chic. Its design is created via laser-cut ivory scallops that are hand-stitched on for a cool three-dimensional look. Measuring seventy inches wide, it’s best for a mid-sized window. Its lack of lining does mean light will come through with only minimal filtering, so bear this in mind.
The eclectic color options range from blush to turquoise depending on your existing décor scheme. By opting for a brighter color, you can add a splash into your kitchen without changing anything else. A potential downside is that the taffeta fabric can only be dry cleaned due to its delicate nature.
