Soft sheer shades soften light and reduce glare over kitchen desk area
Nov 15 2010
A small desk area set aside in the kitchen for paperwork or time spent on a laptop can be a boon to all members of the family.
Installing a kitchen desk gives homeowners a comfortable place to take care of bill-paying and other paperwork.
According to OldHouse.com, homeowners can get a lot of use from a desk extension at the end of a long countertop. Children can use it to get their homework done, while adults can set it up as their bill-paying and home planning center. When more room is needed for kitchen duties, office supplies can be whisked into a drawer installed under the countertop.
"They can use it as a staging area for a buffet or to roll out a pie crust," interior designer Connie Edwards told the website.
In kitchens where cabinetry fills all the space, a bottom cabinet that isn't used much can be removed. A drawer and end panel can be constructed on both sides of the knee hole for support. A stool can be stored underneath.
If the kitchen desk is close to windows, any glare on a computer screen or paperwork can be minimized by installing attractive, soft sheer shades. They allow filtered light to enter a room, but also maintain visibility of outside views.
