Use the Light.

In the kitchen, you want a bright and airy atmosphere. Depending on your home’s lighting, you might be afraid of using color on your walls or cabinets. But, with adjustable window coverings, you can control the light. Let in natural light when you want it, and adjust the blinds to decrease it when you don’t.
