Best Blinds for a Kitchen

Blinds have become a popular choice in regards to what window coverings people have in their kitchen. This is due to many reasons such as: ease of maintenance and cleaning, increased safety from potentially hot items in the kitchen, and improved natural light.

When choosing which blind is best for your kitchen, there are a couple of blinds which serve as a good choice.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are a popular choice for kitchen blinds due to their ease of use and overall simplicity. As well as this, roller blinds can also be layered with other window dressings such as roman blinds or curtains, if you were looking to make your kitchen more unique.

Kitchen roller blinds also come in a wide range of patterns and colours, making it easier to find the best fit for your kitchen. Additionally, you can also find blinds which are waterproof and fire retardant.

Faux Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds are ideal for kitchens.  They come in a range of colours to co-ordinate with your kitchen, and are versatile, offering both privacy and filtering sunlight.  Also, the faux wood blinds are not prone to the damaging effects of humidity as real wood blinds can be.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are also a great choice for your kitchen, as they can offer more natural light and privacy at the same time. This type of blind is also good at preventing high amounts of heat from coming into the kitchen (this becomes even more apparent when a thicker vinyl is used) when compared to other blinds that may incorporate metals or plastics.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are an excellent choice for your kitchen, especially if you are looking for a wide range of patterns, colours and textures to choose from. Here at Scotts Interiors, we also make each roman blind to specific measurements, making it a good choice if you want a tailored look (A better fit offers more privacy).

Also, due to the wide array of materials and patterns available with roman blinds, you are able to co-ordinate with other parts of the kitchen such as: cushions, table decorations and towels etc.

Best Colour for Kitchen Window Blinds

Adding some colour via your kitchen blinds can bring the room together and create a feature piece. When selecting a colour you must take into account the existing colours of your furniture and walls etc. For example, if you have a kitchen with a wooden theme and neutral colours, you could go for a warm tone or simple lighter colour.

Warm Colours

kitchen blinds with warm colours such as: yellow, brown and orange etc. can help to add a sense of warmth to the room and act as a feature piece if you currently have a white/neutral themed kitchen.

Bold Colours

If you are looking to really add a main feature piece to your kitchen, you may want to look at bolder colours or patterns, as often kitchen units are fairly plain and need a “lift”.  We have plenty of bold or statement fabrics to match or contrast with any kitchen units or theme.  These types of colours are best to add in small amounts, and should ideally be added to a kitchen that has a very basic or neutral theme. We can spend a lot of money on our new kitchens, and spend a lot of time in this room, so it’s important to pick something that’s right for your own space, and that you love!
