I love seeing before and after pictures of home decor updates, and today I’m going to share a fabulous kitchen update that we did for a client. We updated the window treatments in her kitchen and dining area, and I love how they turned out. My client loves them too, which is even better!
This window treatment re-do was a little different for me because I got to update the window treatments that I did for this client 12 or 13 years ago. She and her husband had recently gotten new counter tops and backsplash, and were ready to change out the window treatments too.
Here’s what the old window treatments that I made a few years ago looked like when I went for our consultation. This is their dining area. The bay area has a door that opens to the yard.
We went very dark the first time around, and I couldn’t wait to lighten things up!
We picked a fabric that I love. It has a white background with bright colored flowers and leaves. We also picked out an orange fabric for a contrast banding, and added black cording next to the banding for an added pop.
The floral fabric complements the new counter tops and back splash.
This time, we made 3 valances across the bay area instead of the two window valances and then the lower door valance. We did make another panel and tieback for the door. I love how much lighter and brighter the area feel now. So much better!
We decided not to go so flat and tailored with the window treatments this time around, and went with a soft pleated style instead. I love the buttons that we added at the bottom of the pleats.
You may recognize this valance style, I did valances in the same pleated style with banding and buttons for another client’s bedroom.
Here’s a picture of the kitchen sink corner windows. I didn’t get a before picture of the old window treatments, but they were the same style as in the dining area.
We did the same valance style on these windows.
Recently, I wrote a post about how to re-cover a chair seat. The chairs that I re-covered in that post belonged in this client’s kitchen. We chose a fabric for the chairs that coordinated with the valance fabrics.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at my client’s updated kitchen. You’ll love this client update too!
