What Are The Best Blinds For Kitchens?
“What are the best blinds for kitchens,” you ask? Well, the short answer is ones which are easy to clean and also waterproof. We are keeping it practical here!
This will still leave you with many options, but some types are eliminated immediately due to their materials.
There is still a wide range of blinds suitable for your kitchen that provides many other benefits such as excellent light control, increased privacy and reduced glare. You won’t have to compromise on style either!
What to Consider When Choosing Blinds for Kitchens
When choosing blinds for kitchens, you need to remember the challenges that being in the kitchen can result in for your new window coverings.
These challenges can include:
- Humidity. This is the most important one. All kitchens will get humid to some degree when cooking and washing up.
- Fats/oils in the air. Unless your daily diet consists of salad, ice cream and microwave meals, cooking fats tend to vaporise into the air, which can collect on things around your kitchen, including your blinds. To make matters worse, fats also like to attract any dirt and dust floating in the air.
- Water contact. This is especially important if your blinds are placed behind or close to your sink, and if your windows get a noticeable amount of condensation, this can make the blinds wet too.
- Cooking smells. Cooking, preparing or just taking a lid off your takeaway containers creates airborne aromas which can cling and work their way into porous fabrics.
All of these challenges teach us three things; you don’t want blinds which are: absorbent, porous or hard to clean!
Now that you know what to avoid, let us show you the best choices for kitchen blinds.
