Kitchen and Bathroom Window Treatment Cost Guide
Kitchens and bathrooms are often forgotten about when homeowners are designing professionally installed window treatments. The kitchen is usually where homeowners and their guests spend hours of time every day and is also the place where visitors gather during a party. The right type of window treatment will increase the aesthetic appeal of this busy center of the home. Bathrooms are also frequently used rooms and the right window treatment can lend an air of much needed privacy to the space.

The Average Cost of Kitchen and Bathroom Window Treatments
The average cost of professionally designed and installed kitchen and bathroom window treatments is $124 per window. This includes the fee for labor as well as the materials for the treatments. The hardware from which the treatments are hung will add to the overall project cost. If premium materials are desired, this can also increase the expense of the project. In homes with unusually sized or shaped windows such as a porthole window, designing and hanging coordinating window treatments may be more expensive.
Types of Kitchen and Bathroom Window Treatments
Drapes are usually used in other parts of the house, but kitchen and bathroom windows are often too small for long and full draperies. Cafe style curtains are a common kitchen or bathroom window treatment as they allow the sunshine to filter in through the upper portion of a window while covering the lower portion for privacy. Another common type of kitchen and bathroom window treatment is a Roman shade. These can be lifted up or down as needed and maintain an elegant look. Blinds are another option for allowing light through yet keeping prying eyes from looking inside of the room. Wooden blinds that are affixed to the wall and can be closed in front of the window are a premium window treatment. These can add value to the home as they become a part of the home's permanent fixtures.
Factors for the Cost of Kitchen and Bathroom Window Treatments
The type of material used in the window treatment will pay a major role in its cost. If anti-stain coatings or waterproof materials are used, this can also add to the cost. Custom hardware or specially ordered fabric may also add to the cost of the project. Homeowners who choose to install wooden window treatments may need to have the wood periodically re-stained or resealed in order to maintain the functionality and beauty of the wood.
Benefits of Professionally Installed Kitchen and Bathroom Window Treatments
