They may be short on fabric, but they sure are full of charm. Today, I’m sharing some of my favourite cafe curtain options.
I’ve loved cafe curtains for as long as I can remember. There’s just something so homey feeling in their casual simplicity and I think they bring so much charm & character to a space. Honestly, I think they could be put to work in nearly any room of a home (here’s a fun round up of ideas), but I think they work especially well in kitchens & bathrooms.
I mean obviously they look beautiful and bring a lovely touch of softness to an otherwise cold, more utilitarian space, but there are so many other reasons they work so well for kitchens and bathrooms too. I love the way that cafe curtains offer up some privacy, while still allowing natural light to pour in. As far as window treatments go, they tend to be less expensive than a roman blind or woven shade would be and and are often easier to open and close in tricker spots to reach, such as over the sink (#shortpeopleproblems). Probably the biggest draw to using cafe curtains in the kitchen or bath are how easy they are to launder, which is obviously so important to consider for these spaces in particular.
Even before starting our kitchen renovation, I’d pictured soft, gauzy cafe curtains hanging in the window above our farmhouse sink. In my eyes, it’s the epitome of a cozy, yet light & airy kitchen space. Here I am more than 3 years later and our windows are still bare, but that’s all about to change – I’ve been window shopping (pun intended) cafe curtains for ages now, pinning and saving all sorts of beautiful options and I think I’m finally ready to get some ordered up for our kitchen and dining windows. But, rather than just share the final reveal of our curtains all installed and looking lovely, I thought it might be more helpful to take you along for the ride instead as I shop for the perfect pair. So today, I’m sharing some of my favourite cafe curtain options, including the ones we’ll be going with for our own kitchen windows.
Modern Cottage Style Cafe Curtain Options
- custom sheer | 2. floral curtains | 3. wildflower bottom | 4. gray stripe | 5. ticking stripe | 6. flax linen | 7. plaid | 8. custom linen | 9. lace sheer
I found SO many cute options it was hard to choose just one, but in the end, I opted to go the custom route with these beautiful sheers with a pinch pleat top, mainly because our kitchen windows are to wide for most of the pre-made options. I also ordered up a couple of these inside mount rods for them to hang from (though I’m still on the hunt for some tiny little rings to use with them). It’ll be several weeks yet before our curtains arrive, but I promise to share photos once we get them up! I hope you found today’s post helpful. I can’t wait to see these cute little cafe curtains hanging in our kitchen and dining space!
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day my friends!
