- Ease of care. The window in the kitchen, like curtains, should be washed and cleaned about once a month. Even with the best hood, this part of the kitchen interior needs systematic care. Tulle, like no other material is easy to wash. It is enough to soak the curtains, observing the technology of washing synthetic things, lightly rinse and rinse well. If there are no cotton or other natural threads in the thread filling of the tulle, it does not need to be ironed. Many housewives hang up the pressed tulle directly on the window. The material dries in half an hour, does not stretch and does not gather in creases.
- Cheaper The assortment of curtains for the kitchen window varies from budget to very expensive. Tulle has a standard low price with extraordinary beauty of the fabric.

Variety of colors and patterns
Modern technology suggests for tulle fabrics, in addition to the traditional French weaving of synthetic thread, such materials as: organza, veil, muslin and mesh. These are different ways of weaving and the choice of textiles, in which tulle fabric is produced.
Tulle organza is made by dense weaving. The material is continuous, but easily passes air if weaving assumed the use of natural silk.Despite the obvious simplicity of execution, this drapery looks very impressive.
Organza из синтетических нитей намного дешевле и по внешнему виду не отличается от шелковой. Единственным отличием, можно считать не такую высокую гигроскопичность материала.
For the kitchen window, the tulle from organza white or pastel color will be a rich addition. Visually increasing the space, such a curtain will keep cool on a hot day.
The kind of weaving mesh can be obtained both from natural (cotton, linen) and from synthetic threads (viscose). The weaving is simple enough, as a result, the fabric resembles a small, or large mesh. Woven multi-colored threads allow you to choose both monophonic and multi-colored curtains.At such curtains the grid can be both large and shallow.

The drawbacks of the material include the fact that the dust accumulates quickly enough on the grid, but the ease of washing quickly removes this defect.
Weaving the veilA veil is an effective idea for a kitchen in any style.
Tulle by type of veil can be used not only for the kitchen window, but also as the main curtain in the living room or bedroom. The fabric has a dense structure, although it is made of fine synthetic filaments.
The applied print makes the veil a very rich material, so this curtain does not need a supplement. From the shortcomings of the material: kitchen veil from the veil requires ironing, as the fabric is subject to deformation, regardless of whether natural or artificial threads were used in it.
Cotton yarns of extra class, with weaving form a smooth and fine structure. Embroidered cambric tulle, when selecting a color scheme suitable for a particular interior, will be able to create a special color and comfort in the kitchen. Baptiste - natural material, after washing (simple enough - the material can not be washed in a washing machine, bleached, boiled), ironing is required.Batistovye tulleys look very expensive in the interior.
Chiffon fabricsModern long curtains - this is an enormous selection of colors, a variety of cuts and texture.
Tulle from chiffon is structural, with convex pattern, set of colored threads or monophonic - colorful variant for kitchen window. Even flowerpots with flowers fade against the background of such a curtain. It is made from synthetically strands, it is easily washed, not ironed. The only difficulty is the sewing of the necessary curtain, the material is crumbled over the untreated edges.
Weaving of jacquard
The embossed tulle is made of threads of various thicknesses with a varied pattern. It is on jacquard tulles that fabulous gardens bloom and the birds of paradise sing. The most expensive material, but it pays off its strength. The Jacquard curtain will last at least 40-50 years, without losing color and retaining the structure.Tulle for the kitchen has extraordinary decorative features.

Having hung up a tulle big on the width of a window, and having decorated an aperture by folds, it is possible to achieve classical design.In this design harmoniously fit curtains, suspended on decorative hooks, as in the photo.
Decorating the bottom of a short tulle with a wide border into the color of the walls, and having tulle along the edges, a Mediterranean design is achieved.
With this method of fastening the tulle to the cornice, like wide loops sewed from the same material as the main curtains, create a country style or a medieval European style of village dwelling.
Long TulleWhen hand washing, you can not rub the tulle. It is enough to squeeze it lightly, and the last rinse is done in cold water.
A long tulle curtain in the floor will only work if the kitchen has a large working area. In small rooms hang a long tulle is not practical and inexpedient. Even if the curtain will consist of two halves, so that access to the window was convenient, a long tulle will most often interfere with the hostess, rather than rejoice.
In large kitchens, where the space near the window is free, or the dining table is located, you can use jacquard tulle as an addition to the interior. Beautiful, juicy figure and bright colors will please the landlady always, even if the kitchen is no longer decorative elements.

The arch can be located in the window opening as folds, and slightly wavy. The design of the curtain allows you to protect the kitchen from extraneous views, and to ensure air access.
Tulle from halves
Window curtain of two, three halves will be a good option if in addition to the window in the kitchen there is also a balcony door. Each element of the curtain can be selected from various materials, draped the window opening from the jacquard tulle, to chiffon and batiste.

This option is used in those rooms that are located on the sunny side, and the landlady can experience stuffiness on a hot sunny day.The color and texture of the material for tailoring can be quite diverse.
If preference is given to the oriental style, curtains are used instead of blinds, as a supplement. But the option of window design with curtains will be appropriate only in large kitchens, with sufficient air intake.
Tulle on the eyelets
Eyelets or metal rings around the edges of the tulle make it easy to hang material on the window. Hiding the eyelets in the kitchen cupboard or vice versa leaving them on top, you can achieve an exclusive design of the room.Eyelets - blind curtains in the form of metal, wooden or plastic rings, framing round holes in the upper part of the curtains.
In addition to metal, plastic curtains are found on the curtains of the tulle and the edge of the curtains is decorated with a braided cord of the type of the eye ring. The main criterion for choosing the type of eyelet is the individual taste of the hostess and the general interior of the kitchen.
There are several practical recommendations for choosing a metal eyelet:
- Non-corrosion. Metal should be well processed.
- The density of the insert. The ring should not have an acute, cutting edge.
- Uniformity. The eyelets should be clearly located on the edge of the tulle.
The most beautiful are the jacquard colored tulle on the eyelets of yellow (gold) color. On rich fabrics, these decorative elements look like precious metal.
Tulle curtain with lambrequin
The French style involves draping a lambrequin. Lambrequin as a separate drapery in full width of the cornice is perfectly combined with tulle from any material. The main rule is that lambrequin itself is made of light material, preferably by texture coinciding with the main cloth.
In addition to the beautiful view, the lambrequins hide the cornice - this is the practical side of using this drapery.
Lambruck can be sewn directly to the curtain itself, you can hang it separately. This addition is combined with a short, long tulle, tulle from two halves.Lambruck - a short static curtain, hung on the entire width of the eaves or window opening.
If the kitchen curtain is sewn in the shape of an arch, it is not recommended to use lambrequin by designers, it is nasty and inappropriate. If the tulle is fastened with eyelets, then they themselves perform a decorative function, complement the cornice and the lambert will not be aesthetically pleasing.
The assortment of tulle, decorative inserts, ways of decoration is so much that before the housewives there is a temptation to place all styles and designs in one window opening.
Do not hurry, for every woman has its own unique interior, and to find it simply enough, you just need not be afraid to experiment.
