The kitchen tends to be one of the busiest and most functional areas of the home, so it’s essential that you choose kitchen blinds or curtains that are hard wearing and will stand the test of time. However, that’s not to say that your kitchen curtains or blinds shouldn’t be stylish. Quickfit Blinds & Curtains has a wide range of beautiful curtains and blinds for kitchen windows, with something to suit every style and budget.
Choosing the best curtains or blinds for the kitchen
When choosing the best curtains or blinds for the kitchen there are a number of things that you should take into consideration. As our kitchens are often filled with steam, grease and odours from cooking, having kitchen blinds or curtains that are easy to care for and keep clean is a must.
Blinds are an excellent option for the kitchen as they are usually much easier to clean and maintain than kitchen curtains. Blinds that are made using plastic or faux wood, such as our white timber look venetian blinds, are commonly used in kitchens as they will not absorb odours, are less likely to stain if splashed and are extremely easy to wipe down and clean.
Kitchen double blinds or roller blinds are a cost effective choice for the kitchen. Both styles will provide light control and added privacy when needed and therefore good for street side kitchen windows. What’s more, many of Quickfit’s double and roller blinds are made from high-quality, hard wearing material that is very easy to clean and will stand the test of time.
The size, shape and location of your kitchen windows should also be taken into consideration when choosing kitchen blinds and curtains. For smaller windows in hard to reach areas such as above the sink you should consider a kitchen blind that has a slim profile and doesn’t take up too much space. Also, keep in mind that kitchen blinds above the sink are more likely to be splashed with water so the material they’re made from should be carefully considered. Quickfit’s timber look venetian blinds are made from top quality PVC and are moisture and humidity resistant making them perfect for rooms such as the kitchen.
If you’re looking for blinds for the kitchen but have larger windows or glass doors then kitchen blockout blinds may be a better option. Quickfit’s blockout blinds for kitchens are easy to install and can be opened fully to allow full access to the door or window at any time.
