One of the most popular and best ways to dress a window is by using kitchen curtains. These kitchen curtains come in different styles as well as colors that can suit anyones kitchen. You can select from the most basic to the most intricately decorated kitchen curtain. If you want to, you can also use a tier for more privacy. For a lighter almost airy look, go for a lace curtain.

Lets start with panels. A panel is a kitchen curtain that hangs from the top of a window down to the windows sill or even lower. These are sold and can be used individually. You also have the options to hang it with another panel. They come in various fabrics such as crushed, printed, sheer solids, lace, solid fabric and embroidered. These can also be used behind drapes leading to more privacy and an elegant finish.


On the other hand, tiers are ruffled or tailored window treatments that are usually hung in the middle of the windows down to the windows sill. Commonly used with a swag or a valance and is also known as a privacy tier or caf. Sets as a window treatment come in pairs made up of left and right panels. These sets are in 2 to 5 pieces that includes a tieback, valance or a panel.

Swag is a 3pc-set window treatment found at the top. This has a rod pocket with curved shape on the interior and a straight side on the exterior. Other window treatments are toppers and valances which are located at the top of the windows and are made in different shapes as well as styles. You can use it individually as a kitchen curtain or can be used with a tier, panel or another hard window treatment.

A scarf is a single piece fabric that is commonly draped at the top of a window and loosely hangs on the sides. This can be placed with other panels or used individually. It measures 144 to 216 inches in length. Another type of window curtain is the drape. This is a heavy fabric which is hung from the top of a window down to the window sill below.
