4- Vertical kitchen curtains
We see vertical curtains more and more in kitchens, an idea that seemed reserved for the living room. This type of curtains is not common to see in stores because they are usually made to measure, which increases the price considerably and they are not exactly cheap.
It is important that you understand that the curtain in your kitchen should not cover all the windows because ventilation is vital. Imagine that you are preparing food and that certain smells cannot come out. Unpleasant, right?
What kinds of fabrics are best for you? We had told you about how easy it is for our curtain fabrics to be washed. Cotton and polyester are the most suitable materials for this.
“Heavy” fabrics are terrible for kitchens because they are almost impossible to wash, and also, due to their chemical compositions, they highlight stains or dirt they may have.

What should we take into account? There are no rules in this regard, originality is determined by your imagination. Here you will see some examples of original kitchen curtains, with photos to inspire you.

The indoor ones are designed to decorate, so as not to let in so much sunlight and to prevent the neighbors from seeing what we are doing.
The outdoor ones are designed to be able to get in and out easily, avoiding the entry of insects. Remember the “macaroni” curtains? Well, similar but more modern.
9- Of your interest…
The shape of your window or door will be crucial in determining what type of curtain you will need. Remember that functionality and what conforms to it must be above what you want because we don’t always want what is “real”.
Make a real estimate of the amount of fabric you will need. Always keep a 30 cm margin to the width of the window to ensure that it really fits.
The ideal length will depend on your window. However, he recommends that you add 15 cm more to the height of the curtain so that it has a perfect fall.
The tie-backs, which are small pieces of wood or metal, are quite an elegant and ideal complement to our curtains. They will look quite classic and with a romantic touch.
Sheer fabrics are perfect to let the light in without having to leave the window unprotected with our curtains.
