What blinds are best for kitchens?

When choosing blinds for your kitchen, this can be a difficult task in terms of knowing which blind style to choose. By making this decision, you have to consider all factors including moisture, grease, damp and spillages. The last thing you want to do is spend your hard earned money on a blind that will potentially get ruined from daily chores in the kitchen.

So which style should you look out for you may ask? There are a variation of styles that would be suitable for your beloved kitchens; as long as the material they’re made out of are moisture resistant. 

Moisture resistant materials are available in the following:

Roller blinds are a great addition to any room in your house; and can be made with moisture resistant materials making them perfect for your kitchens. Available in a range of different fabric ranges with stylish designs, exciting patterns and versatile colours. You can personalise your roller blinds to suit you and your kitchen. 

Vertical Blinds can customise any domestic or commercial premises and offer fantastic control over filtering light into the room. Verticals are an attractive and affordable option for your kitchen and can be made out of moisture resistant materials and also be coated with flame retardant or be manufactured as solar protective.They are also very easy to operate with your choice of a chain or a wand. A classic choice for your home or office (and in particular, kitchen!)

If you love the idea of wooden venetians in your home but are worried about how moisture may affect your wooden slats, faux wooden venetians are your best bet. They replicate wooden venetians but use a faux wood material so are perfect for areas with high moisture levels (and they look great too!). They still offer the privacy and light control you desire but are made out of high quality PVC and emulate a sophisticated wood grain or contemporary smooth grain. A great alternative for your kitchen. 

Like faux venetians, our vinyl shutters can also be made out of faux wood, making them a picture perfect alternative to real wooden shutters. Vinyl shutters still offer the benefit of the practical features designed for light and privacy control and can be catered to all shapes and sizes. Safe from moisture, vinyl shutters are perfect for your kitchen and easy to operate.
