Most suitable blinds for kitchens
What with the smells, spills and heat of the kitchen, you’ll need a blind that’s tougher than most blinds in other rooms around the home. Don’t forget, the kitchen is the heart of the home and needs to look stylish, too. So, what’s an interior designer to do – amateur or otherwise – when presented with the dilemma of practicality vs. panache? Here are a few suggestions from the professionals at Humberside Blinds.
Roller blinds are a classic for ease of operation and maintenance. Thanks to modern materials incorporated seamlessly into the manufacture, roller blinds are practical for the kitchen, too. At one time, a roller blind would not have been the best choice for a kitchen. However, with vinyl coatings and fibreglass fabrics, you can enjoy wipe-clean, stain-resistant, fire-resistant blinds that offer exceptional coverage.
Vertical & Venetians
Known for their stylish and timeless designs, vertical and venetian blinds are a popular choice for kitchens. Vinyl vertical blinds and aluminium venetian blinds are both stain resistant and cope well with the high temperatures that are experienced in kitchens every day. Not only that but unlike blinds made from natural materials, they will not lose their shape and remain like the day you bought them for years to come.
It is recommended to choose a faux wood blind over a traditional natural timber. This is due to the fibres in wood being susceptible to warping and mould when exposed to high temperatures and humidity over a long period of time.
Where are your windows situated?
If you have windows that are above a sink or a stove then you will want to consider your choice of materials. As stated above, vinyl and aluminium blinds are stain, mould and fire-resistant, which are the key functional design features you will want in kitchen blinds. The added bonus of faux wood is its affordability over its natural counterpart. Same aesthetic, but with improved practicality and price.
