Essential Advice for Choosing Kitchen Blinds

Window coverings are an essential decorating choice when planning your dream kitchen. They need to be durable as well as stylish, reliable, easy to clean and manage the ravages of a home’s hub. Whichever decorating way you choose to go, read our kitchen blinds essentials before you add this final decorating ingredient.

Keep it Clean

Black Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds in materials such as resilient aluminium keep their shape and are easy to clean; especially essential if they are near a cooker or hob and likely to attract steam and grease. 

Freshen Up 

Blinds are an excellent place to add colour in a white or pared back kitchen space (very useful for softening hard-edged industrial-style spaces), and if the sun decides to turn up, you can open them up and replace with nature’s own version.

What’s Your Angle?

A sloping roof in an extension or top floor flat can still benefit from some window hugging blinds that can be adjusted to meter the light as the sun moves across the day.

Hit the Deck

If you are lucky enough to have a view to enjoy, floor to ceiling windows can be uncomfortable in the midday sun. These kitchen blinds let you defuse light but recede completely when it’s time to enjoy sun downers in the evening glow. For colder months, our Duette® Shades range with three layers of fabric can keep in warmth and reduce your energy bills; essential with large windows that can feel chilly.

Save Space 

No matter what style you want, blinds are a sensible option for maximising space and cutting down on the dry cleaning bills for curtains or drapes. For a more traditional or classical feel shutters in real or faux wood can lend some classical laid-back style.

Look for Contrast

Natural materials such as wood make a homely, warm kitchen but if you want to add some edge look for a window covering that can bring that earthiness up to date; we like this punchy cool acqua with a soft oak tone.

And Breathe…

Pink Tilt Kitchen Blinds

Kitchens can get hot and steamy (if you’re lucky) but don’t compromise comfort or privacy; blinds designed to tilt and move up or down can give you the best of all worlds.

Go for Glow

A kitchen blind with a warm hue such as yellow, beige or tan can add some warmth to a monochrome, white or metallic scheme by heating up light that flows through them.
