The kitchen is the heart of the home, we spend as much time perfecting our kitchen aesthetic as our living rooms and bedrooms. But when it comes to choosing the right style for your kitchen window dressing it’s not just about aesthetics, interior décor, and tone but about utilising suitable fabrics that are practical for the space. In this blog we’re focusing on not only practical blinds for the kitchen but stylish, affordable ones. So, read on for our recommendations for kitchen blinds and some of our favourite products.

Choosing Kitchen Blinds

When selecting blinds for your kitchen it's important that you choose a fabric that is waterproof, easy to clean and a style of blind that is easy to operate. We’ve ranked our different types of blinds based on these criteria, so that you can decide if you’re purely looking for kitchen blinds based on functionality or if you want to find a compromise between optimal fabric type and your own personal style. The great news is we have so much choice in colour, design, blind type, and style that you’re sure to find the perfect blind for your kitchen.

Roller Blinds

PVC roller blinds and flame retardant roller blinds are our top choice for kitchen blinds because they’re practical and easy to operate. Our PVC fabrics are waterproof and flame-retardant which are the perfect blinds for kitchen windows over the sink. They’re easily wiped clean and come in a huge range of colours to suit any kitchen décor.

Vertical Blinds

PVC vertical blinds have the same fabric benefits as our roller blinds but are offered in a different style. One of the benefits of vertical blinds is that they offer different options for privacy and light control than our roller blinds in case you have different functional needs that a roller blind might not satisfy. Another great part about vertical blinds is we also sell replacement slats – so if you ever want a quick and easy way to update your blinds or you’re worried about having a blind that you can easily repair (we’re looking at you, customers with kids and cats!) then these are a great option.

Faux Wood Venetian Blinds

Faux wood blinds are an excellent option for the kitchen because, unlike their real wood counterparts, they are resistant to water and to warping. Like PVC Rollers they’re also easily wiped, come in a huge range of colours, slat widths, and finishes, and are a stylish and contemporary addition to your kitchen. If you also want to add a little bit of finesse to your kitchen window dressings you can opt for our taped blinds, with matching tapes or contrasting tapes to add a pop of colour.

Faux Wood Shutters

Kitchen shutters made in faux wood have the same benefits as our faux wood venetian blinds because they’re made from PVC. Not only are they practical, but shutters are also incredibly stylish and a growing trend in window dressings. They also offer optimal light control and additional privacy should you want it.
