Kitchens are the hub of the home. They are the place where meals are made, families gather and parties are held. That’s why choosing the right blind for your kitchen is an important decision.To help guide your decision, we’ve compiled a list of the best ideas for your kitchen blind:
Blinds for Different Kitchen Window Types:
Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes…and so do the windows within them. We’ve put together some window types for kitchens and what blinds may work best for them:
Patio doors are a great feature in many kitchens, and it is important to find a blind that is functional and flexible while showing off your door in the best light.
We would recommend opting for Perfect FIT blinds, Venetian blinds fitted to the wall face, Verticals or Roller blinds. Perfect FIT blinds are the sleekest option for patio doors as they sit within the rubber seal of the glazing. This means you have total control over the doors without the blinds getting in the way.
Another great option for a patio door is a Vertical blind as you can bunch the blinds to one side, making the door easily accessible to walk in and out whilst giving you total control over light. As they sit in the seal of the door, it makes it easy to open and close the doors without any hassle.
Rollers also work well. Whilst they are not fixed to the door themselves, fixing them within the recess means they look neat and tidy. However, you have less light control with a simple up or down mechanism. Additionally, Venetian blinds are used for patio doors but can be a hassle for leaving and entering a room. And because they aren’t fixed like Perfect Fit, they can become a hindrance when opening and closing the door - we’d recommend Perfect FIT if you like this style.
Standard Square Window
This window type is straight forward when it comes to blind ideas for your kitchen. You can select from our wide range of blinds…it really comes down to preference on colour/pattern options and style! For example, if you want something to complement the decor in your kitchen, then we’d suggest opting for a Day and Night blind. Day and Night blinds are a great and stylish option for allowing varying levels of privacy while also letting light into a room. Alternatively, if you want the blind to add a feature to your kitchen then a patterned Roller would be an excellent choice.
Different Colour Options for Kitchen Blinds:
Once you have decided on the type of blind you’d like to match your kitchen style, then the decision moves to colour. There really are a plethora of options when it comes to colours for your blind. We’ve outlined some of the different colours you could opt for from our blinds:
Brighten up your kitchen for any time of the year! The range of vibrant colours include greens, oranges, yellows, purples, and more. If you want a cheerful blind to match the feel of your kitchen, then the possibilities are pretty much endless.
For the contemporary chic look, going neutral is the way to go. You may have a coloured shaker style kitchen, paired with a marble worktop, where a white wooden blind would really add that final piece of elegance to your kitchen. Creams, whites, and beiges are readily available for all blind types so no matter the style, you have plenty of options to choose from on our website.
This is where you want your blind to sing! It might be that you have chosen neutral doors, drawers and worktops but you want to add a splash of colour. If so, a deep blue or ferocious red would really make the blind a statement piece to your kitchen.
Features You Can Add to your Kitchen Blind:
It’s not only colours that can make a statement with your kitchen blind. You can add features to your blind which can add a touch of personality and character to your kitchen should you want a stripe or a floral pattern to match your decor.
Opting for a striped blinds can add a touch of luxury to your kitchen. You can purchase striped blinds in a variety of colour-ways and styles from horizontal, vertical and zig-zag. These are a great addition for any kitchen trying to achieve that elegant look.
Similar to if you want your kitchen blind to be a statement piece, floral pattern blinds are a great way to add a feature to your kitchen. Be it a simple leaf design or an ornate flower, a floral pattern blind can elevate your kitchen and impress your guests when hosting.
Checks & Dots
Another option to consider when adding a feature to your kitchen is to opt for a blind with checks or dots. A bit less conventional than a floral pattern, check & dotted blinds are another way to add intrigue and texture to your kitchen blind.
Whilst you may not want a statement blind, you may wish to consider the functional aspects of what different features a blind can bring. Looking into features such as wipeable, waterproof and flame retardant are all sensible features to consider for your kitchen blind.
When looking at options for your kitchen blind, it is clear there is a vast range of options to choose from. So no matter your window type, or colour/style preference, we're sure there'll be a blind to match your needs.
