When it comes to choosing the perfect blind for your kitchen there are lots of different factors you must consider. Of course, every kitchen is slightly different from the next which is why opting for a made to measure blind usually works best. Yet, that’s not the only thing you must decide on.
The position of your kitchen window might dictate the type of blind you require. If you’re close to street level you might want some more privacy, or if your blinds are near a sink you might opt for a blind which is easier to clean
As there are so many possibilities, let’s take a look at some of the best blinds for your kitchen.
1. For Easy Cleaning
The kitchen is known to be the room to be at house gatherings. For some reason, everyone gravitates there. However, as much as kitchens are popular places to party, they’re best used for cooking. With cooking comes humidity, steam, spills and more. All of which can damage your blinds if they’re not taken care of.
Materials to try and avoid in this environment are real wood and aluminium. Especially if your window space looks over a sink. Any water droplets on the blind can absorb into the wood and cause it to warp or rot. Instead, we suggest using our Faux Wood Venetian Blinds which can withstand moist condition.

Although under normal dry conditions, Aluminium Venetian Blinds can provide you with a long-lasting blind that is super easy to maintain. Unlike other blinds, you don’t have to take these down during the cleaning process. Instead, you can tackle them as they hang, using a Feather Duster. Check out our cleaning guide here.
Tip: Try to avoid blinds made from real wood when choosing the kitchen blind. Faux Wood Venetian Blinds and Aluminium Blinds are one of your best bets for keeping them clean and looking in top condition over time.
2. For Optimal Privacy
Another factor that is highly important to the majority of homeowners is having good levels of privacy. During the day you may want your window space to pour in the light, however in the evening, having your neighbours nosey at you whilst you’re cooking tea or washing the dishes, isn’t desirable.
To help ensure you gain optimal levels of privacy we suggest using a Roller Blind. Different from our selection of Venetian, Vision or Vertical Blinds, the Roller Blind offers you complete privacy with it being a single sheet of fabric.
The multiple breaks in the other blind types allow both light and sight into the house more so than a Roller Blind, making it the best choice.
We stock various types of roller blind including patterned, textured, striped, border pattern and a selection of children’s roller blinds.

3. For Increased Levels of Light
Opposite to Roller Blinds, Vision Blinds are designed with various breaks in the fabric that offer you light filtration similar to that of a Venetian blind. However, Vision blinds are made with a double layer of fabric which can be quickly aligned to allow more or less light to filter in the room.
The Vision blind is a great contemporary yet elegant option that allows you to easily control your light levels without compromising your privacy.
Despite this, we recommend it best for a kitchen that overlooks a garden or when positioned where there are fewer passersby. This will ensure that when positioned to increase light levels in the room, it won’t cause issues with privacy.
