One of the most popular types for curtains for the kitchen is a café curtain. These curtains hang from the center point of the window to the bottom of the windowsill leaving the top part of the window open. For extra coverage or privacy you can add a coordinating valance to the top of the window. Café curtains are a perfect way to cover your window for privacy yet let some light into the kitchen for a warm, open atmosphere. These curtains are not limited to the kitchen they can be used in other rooms of your house as well. For cheap curtains in the kitchen or any room of the house, you can shop home décor outlets or fabric stores. Try clipping coupons in your local paper for deals and discounts on curtains and draperies.
