Kitchen Blinds

Roller blinds are what most people think of as kitchen window blinds, and for good reason. They don’t take up much space, and are virtually a blank slate where styling is concerned. They encompass a huge choice of patterns, colours, and fabrics; including water resistant and waterproof blinds for moist, humid kitchens.

Faux wood blinds in a range of colours and finishes can be used to create a stylish look in both modern and traditional kitchen designs. They’re a very practical choice of blinds for a kitchen window too, as their slats won’t warp due to moisture and steam, even if your window is close to sink and they’re likely to get splashed.

From pale blonde woods to complement a Scandi-style kitchen, whites and greys for an ultra-modern look, to rich, deep wood tones to give a feeling of warmth, our sustainably sourced real wood venetian blinds add an undeniably chic touch to any kitchen window. Wooden blinds can be tilted to filter light without occluding it entirely.

Vertical blinds are a great pick for larger windows, and kitchens fronted by patio doors or French windows. They’re highly versatile as well as practical, and come in a wide range of fabric colours and designs, including wipeable, water resistant options such as waterproof PVC and vinyl fabrics; a great choice for kitchen windows over the sink!

If your kitchen windows are a reasonable distance from the sink and your kitchen doesn’t get overly moist or humid, Roman blinds in your kitchen will create a thoroughly luxurious ambience. They’re available in a wide range of colours and styles in both plain and patterned designs, and are carefully handmade with impeccable attention to detail.

Venetian blinds are made from easy wipe-clean aluminium, finished in your choice of matt, gloss, or metallic paint, and are an excellent, hardwearing choice for any kitchen window. They’re wipeable and made to withstand the heat, humidity, and moisture of even the smallest of kitchens. Plus, they suit contemporary and traditional kitchen designs equally well.

Which blinds are best for the kitchen?

Whether you’re looking for contemporary blinds to suit a modern home or are seeking a more traditional look for your kitchen window, it is vital to ensure that your kitchen blinds can take the heat!

The moist, humid, kitchen environment means that certain types of blinds are a better pick than others, and fabrics or materials that are likely to stain, absorb moisture, or warp over time in a humid environment are best avoided.

  • Waterproof PVC or vinyl roller blinds and vertical blinds are a popular choice for kitchens, and these are available in a number of both water resistant and fully washable fabrics.
  • Faux-wood blinds are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing and are robust enough to deal with kitchen challenges like moisture and steam from cooking, and projectile baked beans or other meals that smaller children think look better on the wall than on their plates. These can also just be wiped clean as needed.
  • Real wooden blinds are a lovely natural-looking choice for kitchens and a great way coordinate with other woods in the room. They’re best suited to kitchens that are well ventilated, and not overly humid, nor with a heat source like an Aga, oven, or hob too near the blinds. Challenges like these may in some instances cause real wood blinds to warp over time, so bear this in mind.
  • Aluminium Venetian blinds are a good pick too as these are wipeable, to make keeping them looking good easy. Wipe-clean blinds have some advantages for kitchens too, as over time, blinds in kitchens tend to get grimy due to the presence of oils and fats from cooking building up as a residue on surfaces.
  • Roman blinds are another popular way to dress a kitchen window, and while they’re arguably one of the most prestigious-looking and visually impressive blinds, they are made of premium soft fabrics that are generally not designed to weather heat and high levels of humidity, and that require specialist cleaning.

What are the benefits of kitchen blinds?

Kitchen blinds are available in an enormous range of different styles, colours, patterns, and fabric choices with something to suit every style ethos and preference. From “country cottage” to shabby chic blinds to cutting-edge modernist kitchen styles, the options are virtually limitless.

  • Kitchen blinds can be bespoke made for any size of window, and we specialise in making blinds for larger windows, including patio doors and French windows. This may be more cost effective than you expect too, so compare pricing for our made-to-measure kitchen blinds to off-the-shelf alternatives before writing off bespoke made blinds as a bit too spendy!
  • Blinds for kitchens are also available in a wide range of different materials, many of which can be wiped clean and even in some cases put in the washing machine, and which are not prone to staining and losing shape and structure like curtains.
  • If your blinds are going to be located near to a heat source or as many kitchen windows are, over a sink, you also need to ensure they won’t warp from the heat and will withstand frequent contact with water, two things that curtains are again not designed to do!
  • Many kitchen blinds such as Venetians, faux-wood, wood, and vertical blinds have slats or louvres that can be tilted with a fine degree of precision. This allows you to filter rather than fully block light, and so enables you to maintain the natural light in your kitchen while avoiding glare if this is a particular problem.
  • Blackout and thermal linings for kitchen blinds can also help to reduce heat loss from your windows and so, lower your energy bills.
  • If you’re planning a kitchen decorating project and are looking for design ideas, generally it is roller blinds, faux-wood blinds, vertical blinds, and aluminium Venetian blinds that are the most popular choices for kitchens.
