    I wouldn't use a curtain at all. I don't think the blinds need it. If there's room, you could add décor above the windows to add some color.

    Agree with Barb. It is a more updated look to not have these ruffled valances over venetian blinds.

    I like what's there now. If you want to change to another color or fabric, I would use your existing valance as a pattern for a different fabric.....(then you don't have to change out the rods!)...try something totally different---- burlap for a rustic look....white or navy denim for a beachy feel......or bold stripes for a nautical look.

    Maybe try some lacey curtains! When blinds are open they let in light but still have privacy, n when blinds are closed, they ad just lol more darkness!

      Or just lacey valance's, you can get the ones with the longer sides that come half way down the window and love the openness and airy look of lace, especially white lace.

    I removed my valances, painted all my wood trim white, and painted the kitchen walls a medium grey. My bay looked like yours before now it looks more modern.

    Use a cornice board shaped to go over all 3 windows. Cover just the top of the blinds. The rest up on the wall to whatever height you like. Cover or paint a complimentary color. Try wider slate blinds. No ruffles or flounces in that small area. Then you can "open up" to the sunshine whenever you want.

    I personally do not like valances nor would I like lacy curtains in the kitchen. It all depends on your decorating style. How do you describe it?

    How about trying something like these ideas to soften the area up?
