When looking for Kitchen Blinds there are certain things that you will need to consider. We stock a wide range of window blind fabrics that have these properites and can be made-to-measure. There's also some great designs available that are really suited to a kitchen environment.

Kitchens are one of the most sociable rooms in the home and sometimes we spend perhaps a little more time than we would like there. Because of this, we always think it's important to make the room as appealing as possible, while being practical and easy to maintain. When it comes to window blinds, there are some great designs available that are really suited to a kitchen environment.

However there are certain factors that you will need to consider so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to choosing your blinds.

One of the first things to take into account is the location of your window. If it's positioned directly above your kitchen sink as many kitchen windows are, then there will very likely be splashes. Many blind fabrics now have antibacterial, mould resistant coatings that will help to protect your blinds for longer from splashes and high condensation levels.

Another concern is that in a room that is so active, blinds will get dirty more quickly, especially if food is being prepared nearby as it invariably ends up splattered across tiles, walls and blinds however careful we try to be. Many of our kitchen blind fabrics have a PVC content which means that blinds can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth, so that you can keep them looking as good as new for much longer.

If you have a view to enjoy as many kitchen windows do being rear facing, then all blind types can be raised or pulled to one side to allow access to garden views while you’re cooking. Roller and Pleateds are good for filtering light that is passing overhead but if you're lucky enough to have a South-facing garden then you may want to consider a blind that allows more light control. Verticals or Venetians are ideal for this purpose as the slats can be angled to direct sunlight as the day goes on and to assist with keeping your kitchen cool.

We stock a wide range of window blind fabrics that have the above properites and all are made-to-measure. By using the filters in the left column of our website, you can select the properties you need in order to find the perfect blind for your kitchen.
