As a company, we believe in being honest and upfront, and when it comes to kitchen window blinds, this is critical.
When buying kitchen window blinds, there are three questions you need to ask:
- Will it look good?
- How easy is it to clean?
- Will it last a long time?
Will It Look Good?
The truth is that there are many different types of window blinds available today that are fantastic and look amazing. However, are they suitable for kitchens? The answer is that most of them are not. Most styles of window blinds will work on windows that are far from the cooking and washing area.
How Easy Is It to Clean?
You will find that your kitchen window blinds will get grease marks, splash marks, sticky fingerprints, etc. even in the most pristine of homes. It is therefore important that the blinds are easily cleaned, and that the cleaning process is not too difficult.
Fabrics for Vertical Blinds and Roller Blinds are usually made from polyester, so they can withstand damp conditions. However, you need to be careful how rigorous you are with your cleaning, and how much moisture you get on the blinds. Vertical blinds made of 100% PVC are the best choice for your kitchen. 100% waterproof, very robust (we use them in schools and hospitals that have very thorough cleaning policies).
You can choose faux wood for your kitchen windows if you prefer the look of traditional wood blinds. They mimic the look of wood blinds, but they are made from PVC, so they are waterproof and robust. Unlike natural wood blinds, you will not have to worry about the paint peeling off, or the wood warping when it gets too wet.
Will It Last a Long Time?
Kitchen blinds that are specifically designed for the kitchen will last and are a worthwhile investment in the long run. A blind that is more difficult to clean or more delicate may require you to replace them sooner than you would like. This is because they may become discoloured, or have marks that are nearly impossible to remove.
