Choosing the appropriate blind to suit your kitchen.

What you need to know about getting a kitchen blind is that properties of the material are important. If your kitchen gets very steamy and moist it would be ideal and recommended to get a fabric that can tolerate water.

When it comes to why you should choose a water resistant material over a standard material it is because anything that hasn’t got the property that repels water in a moist environment is more likely to be damaged in a short period of time. We strongly recommend that water resistant materials should be your only choice when putting blinds up in a moist room.

 

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are perfect as you can get materials that not only repel the water they can also blackout the room giving this product more than one functionality. The range of fabrics for roller blinds are very vast and a lot of the water resistant fabrics are a PVC based material meaning that they can also be cleaned by method of scrubbing without any damage to the fabric. With the PVC fabric not only is it cleanable, water resistant and blackout it also doesn’t absorb odours from cooking that can leave your room with a particular smell.
