10 Best Blinds for Kitchens 2022
Kitchen styling can feel a daunting task, achieving balance between design and functionality is something that many interior designers, homeowners and renters often struggle with finding. A main feature of your kitchen space, and something that often changes the mood, ambiance and vibe of your room is definitely lighting and privacy control. This can easily be altered with a wide range of window blinds, but knowing which one is the right fit for your home (and window), can be a challenging task when you’re trying to design a functional kitchen space.
Depending on each individual home, it’s hard to know which blind can be the best possible option for your kitchen. We’ve put together this handy guide to help you choose the perfect blind for your Kitchen and dining space.
What should I consider when buying a kitchen blind?
When purchasing a blind, and a kitchen blind in particular, there are often many things to consider. Kitchens are one of the most utilised spaces in our homes, so making the right choice is very important.
Style - As a kitchen isn’t a room that is switched around often, finding a blind that not only suits your taste, but will also stay in style and match your kitchen for years to come is definitely a very important factor. Opt for a blind that is timeless, something that has a variant of colour in, or a neutral palette to match growing trends.
Fabric properties - Is your kitchen a larger or smaller space? Kitchen areas can be open and more spacious leaving your room feeling cooler, or smaller and not as well ventilated meaning you desire more air flow. This is where certain materials can help. Lock in heat with thermal fabric qualities, or opt for something that’s a little more sheer. You can also make sure your house is extra safe with a blind made from fire retardant material.
Light control - Probably the most obvious when selecting a blind for your kitchen, but nevertheless, one of the most important. Make sure you select a blind that has light control qualities and something that is easy to manoeuvre.
Privacy -If your kitchen is overlooked, or facing out onto a busy street, privacy is a very important factor to take into consideration. Make sure your blind will give you the utmost privacy control, any time of the day.
Functionality -The most popular blind choices are often the easiest to clean, and can operate smoothly. Waterproof, PVC, or electric motor smart hub blinds, may just be the smartest option for your home if your Kitchen is a very busy space.
