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.
