6. A kitchen blind is easy to operate
Whether you choose kitchen wooden blinds, roller blinds, pleated blinds, or vertical blinds, controlling your blinds couldn’t be easier.
Most blinds have a child-safe cord that controls raising, lowering, and angling. This cord is kept safe with a retaining cleat that’s fixed to your wall – so you don’t have to worry about curious children or pets getting tangled.
Of course, you can take ease of control to the next level by opting for remote-controlled blinds or blinds with smart connectivity.
With a remote, one press of a button controls the angle or level of your blinds. If you decide on smart blinds, you can control your blinds from your device from anywhere you have an internet connection.
You can even integrate smart blinds into smart home technology, such as Google Home, Apple Home or Amazon Alexa devices – meaning you can even control your blinds with voice commands.
7. Blinds in the kitchen are tough and hardwearing
Kitchens are often considered the social hub of a home – the first place people head for when they get home or where most socialising happens.
While this makes a kitchen an essential part of family life, it also means the things in your kitchen are more likely to be bumped, bashed or repeatedly used – and kitchen blinds are no different.
Made-to-measure kitchen blinds are made with this kind of heavy use in mind. Our design team will ask you a few questions about how your kitchen is used – so we can make sure we use a tough fabric for interaction with kids, pets, and even heavy-handed grown-ups!
Of course, there’s also heat and humidity to consider in a kitchen. Opting for water-resistant or completely waterproof blinds means you don’t have to worry about splashes, steam, or cooking smells penetrating the fabric and making your blinds look unclean and tired.
