Most people typically assume that the kitchen is for just cooking and eating, but nothing else. That's not entirely true, says the Times and Transcript.

According to the news source, a new study by Electrolux Group found that an average family of five spends 175 hours a month in the kitchen compared to just 31 in a living room. With so much time spent in the kitchen, it would behoove homeowners to ensure that they have the most aesthetically pleasing and functional decorations as possible.

Experts recommend creating a sense of unity by repeating light fixtures or cabinetry and trim. Another way to create a cohesive decorative pattern in the kitchen is hanging the appropriate window treatments. One option to make sure all elements of the kitchen go together is hanging woven wood shades.

Industry analysts at HGTV.com say that softening direct light is an important aspect of designing a kitchen, and woven wood shades can do this. Too much direct light can make a kitchen hot and unpleasant and with families spending an increasing amount of time in the room - making it the temperature comfortable is important.
