Sprucing up your kitchen, with bright and fresh window blinds
Window blinds are a quick and easy way to spruce up your kitchen and give it a new lease of life, without the necessity of a complete makeover. Bright, fresh window blinds can alter the appearance and ambience of your kitchen, so, if your kitchen is looking a little tired and lacking homeliness a new window blind is the perfect remedy.
Adding a Splash of Colour
Today's window blinds are available in an extensive range of beautiful bright colours. Plain or patterned, bright colours can inject a fresh new look in your kitchen instantly. Go for on-trend colours such as copper, ginger and henna to compliment steel appliances and modern dark coloured cupboards. These orangey tones also work well with natural wood cabinets and flooring. As most kitchens have limited free wall space using blinds to bring pattern and colour into the room is a great idea. Bold, bright colours with abstract designs or modern customised and pictorial blinds offer a smart solution for sprucing up your kitchen in an instant.
Subtle Warm Tones
Subtle warm tones of yellow, orange and green will compliment typical kitchen neutrals. These warm tones work well with stainless steel appliances as well as white, giving a kitchen a bright and cheerful ambience that can bring any style of kitchen to life.
Modern kitchens in white give a sleek, clean look. Use white kitchen blinds to carry on the theme or use them to add contrast to kitchens with contemporary coloured kitchen unit and work tops. White kitchen roller or Venetian blinds are also ideal for minimalistic decorating styles. Both styles offer suitable privacy at night when closed, with roller blinds giving you unrestricted views to the outside world during the daytime.
Red is the colour associated with appetite, that's why so many restaurants use it. The colour of ripe tomatoes, delicious strawberries, along with the more pinky tones of raspberries, red is a great colour choice for kitchen blinds. It is a dramatic colour that makes a statement. Red has the natural ability to bring warmth and cosiness to the kitchen, the heart of many homes, and inject colour as bold or subtly as you want to suit the personalities of those using your kitchen.
As most kitchen windows are situated above the sink window blinds that are easy to clean will make life much simpler without detracting from style. Roller blinds are masters at exposing the window, giving an unrestricted view to your garden. Made with specialised fabric, with wipe clean surface, or in wipe-able PVC, they will provide full privacy when lowered at night. If your kitchen is at the front of the house and overlooks a road, Venetian blinds are a great option as they give you privacy without entirely blocking out natural light. Available in a wide range of colours and finishes, aluminium Venetian blinds are ideal for kitchens as they are resistant to humid atmospheres and easy to wipe clean.
