The heart of the home
Kitchens have transformed hugely over the years, from a purely functional work area, into one of the most utilised and valuable spaces within a home. We often hear Real Estate Agents telling us “kitchens and bathrooms sell houses…”. So the kitchen has to offer more than a functional space, it must be well designed, and importantly the style and finish must be in keeping with the rest of the house. This means that curtains for kitchens should offer some consistency with the other window furnishings throughout the house, whilst addressing the issues specific to kitchens.
Considerations when choosing curtains for kitchens
Durable and easy to clean – exposure to food, grease, water and cooking odours
Safe – kitchens can be dangerous places and window coverings that present a trip hazard or fire danger are obviously not suitable
Décor – as most kitchens these days are open plan, the décor must co-ordinate with adjacent areas either by type, colour or fabric.
Curtains and Blinds for Kitchens
Kitchen roller blinds
Stylish and efficient
Kitchen roller blinds are incredibly durable, and offer a wide range of easy to clean fabrics. They are safe for a kitchen environment, being controlled with either a looped metal chain or using a remote control if motorised. Roller blinds are available in 3 different types of fabric (sunscreen, light filtering and blockout) and with over 600 different fabric and colour combinations, it is easy to find something that will co-ordinate with both the kitchen and the adjacent areas. Roller blinds can also be fitted with a double bracket system, so you can pair 2 blinds together, usually a sunscreen and a blockout blind, to offer both daytime and night time privacy.
Kitchen Venetian Blinds
A true classic
Venetian blinds can offer your kitchen a timeless classic look. Our range of Visionwood timber venetians are easy to wipe clean and are available in a range of designer colours to co-ordinate beautifully with the kitchen and surrounding décor. With cords to control the angle of the slats, venetian blinds can offer daytime and night time privacy.
Kitchen Plantation Shutters
Our plantation shutters are available in timber or PVC, with both providing a superior luxury finish for any window. Our basswood timber shutters are sturdy, resistant to warping and not easily affected by heat and moisture. The PVC shutters are particularly excellent for high moisture areas, making them an outstanding option for a kitchen area. Both types are easy to wipe clean and maintain. Whilst white remains a firm colour favourite with customers, kitchen plantation shutters are available in a range of colours to elegantly co-ordinate with the Kitchen décor and the rest of the house.
