We spend a lot of time in our kitchen. From cooking, to eating, to entertaining, there’s no wonder many of us think of the room as the hub of the whole home. So it’s important then that we pick a window dressing that will fit in with our lifestyle. Have a leisurely read of our guide, or scroll down to the bottom for our quick-fire top tips.
How much cooking do you do?
If you’re a masterchef in the making, you might want to consider a blind that doesn’t hold onto smells. Roman blinds look great and come in brilliant designs but the soft fabric might not be the right choice for you. Think about Roller blinds instead. They come in pretty patterns and striking colours to suit a whole host of kitchen designs. And they’re incredibly easy to use.
Our Fresh Mallow Roller blind is good enough to eat and perfect for a kitchen:
Is your back door in your kitchen?
Many kitchens have a door and a window but that doesn’t mean you have to opt for clashing designs. Co-ordinating fabrics are available in our Roller and Vertical blinds collections – try a Vertical to cover patio doors, and a matching Roller blind for the kitchen window.
Our White Sugar Vertical blind features sheer louvres which are easily matched with our coordinating Roller blind of the same name!
Do you have a window behind your sink?
If your window is behind your sink, then we recommend a couple of different options. Roller and Vertical blinds are perfectly practical for the kitchen, and if you pick a special mould resistant fabric, you’ll never have to worry about those little splashes again.
Our appropriately named Lemon Juice Roller blind will sharpen up any décor scheme.
Is your kitchen overlooked?
If you’re worried about privacy, then an option with slats is perfect for you. Wood creates a gorgeous effect wherever it is used, but real wood runs the risk of warping in hot and steamy conditions. But wood fans, fret not, because we’ve just the solution. Our faux wood range has all our most popular shades, but in waterproof form.
Our Innovation Cosmo Beech Fauxwood won’t warp in damp or steamy conditions, making it perfect for turning up the heat in a kitchen.
