Where are your windows?
First of all you need to think practically. If you’ve got large patio doors that people are opening and closing a couple of times a day, your best option is going be a perfect fit blind or a vertical blind – depending on the type of doors you have. Another thing you need to consider when choosing your kitchen blinds is where your windows are placed – if they’re placed over a sink you’ve got to remember you’re going to be opening and closing it at least twice a day, so make sure it’s not too heavy!
If your windows are near a cooker or sink, we would recommend our wipeable PVC range which is available in vertical, roller & venetian. This means that your blinds will last a lot longer as they won’t go moldy or have mildew due to water or steam from your kitchen. They’re also great if you cook a lot and the hob spits grease or oil onto your blinds – it will just wipe right off.
Want more of a homely feel?
If your windows aren’t directly next to a sink or cooker, or you just want a more warming appearance to your kitchen (especially if you have a kitchen/diner) – you could then choose roman blinds. With over 2000 fabrics to choose from, you’re sure to find a fabric to match your interior. All of our roman blinds come with blackout lining as standard, making them great value whilst still being a really luxurious blind to have up at your windows.
You could even go the whole hog and dress your patio doors with a stylish pair of curtains. This may even eliminate the need for blinds at the door as you can just close your curtains at night for privacy.
