Hello there! I have a question about my kitchen window above my kitchen sink.  I am wondering what window covering I should have.  I have a sliding door in my kitchen also.  I have covered that with two panels.  The kitchen window and sliding door are on the same wall.  Should I show the casing of the window if I choose a roman blind. or roller blind etc.  Also, should the window covering  be made of the same material as curtains?1 more question......Should I put a blind underneath my panels covering my sliding door to match window???? My kitchen has dark chocolate brown cabinets and light tiles and backsplash.  The curtains on the sliding door are the brand ECLIPSE in champagne.  I bought them from fabricland. Thank you

I don't think you need blinds to cover the door - the curtains are enough. If possible do the same fabric as you have on the doors. In a heavier fabric like you have I think the roman blind will be better. We would need to see the molding and the size & depth of the sink window to know if you should leave it exposed.I know you've already hung your curtains and may not have enough length, but I do like to rod hung at ceiling height in the first link.

Hi, there!

if you have the option, I'd go with the same fabric as the panels for the window treatment above the sink.

I recently saw a photo of doors leading into the backyard with a panel of curtains hung at the same height as the window treatment above the sink, even though this made the drapery rod quite a few inches above the door. Because it was a door, there were no blinds or anything. Sort of like this photo:

I think it depends on the moulding you have, but I do love these two window treatments above sinks:
& especially this one:

What does everyone else think?
