Blinds for the Kitchen
Because they are easy to clean, and come with a choice of finishes, blinds are an obvious choice for kitchen windows.
But… did you know that there is so much you can do with the humble blind? As well as being an essential requirement for keeping out the light and adding security and privacy, blinds can transform your kitchen and add stunning impact to your interior design scheme.
In today’s modern household, the kitchen is often the centre of the home. More new homes than ever are built with large open plan kitchen/dining rooms at their heart. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, whether we are doing simple household chores or entertaining family and friends, so when it comes to interior design for your kitchen, you want your decorating scheme to reflect your style and personality.
Kitchen blinds can play a very big part in helping you to achieve that. You don’t have to buy generic blinds; we will create bespoke blinds to suit you and your specific needs, allowing you to put your creative style into the heart of your home.
There are numerous types of blinds and hundreds of choices of fabrics and finishes, so much so that it can almost be overwhelming. So why not seek the expert opinion of our talented team at Norwich Sunblinds?
We can advise on the best type of blinds for your kitchen, perhaps even introduce a style of blind you didn’t even know existed and show you samples from the extensive range of fabrics and finishes, including flame-retardant, anti-bacterial and solar protective fabrics.
Norwich Sunblinds has been making beautiful blinds for over 35 years. In our Attleborough factory, we manufacture many styles of blind, from the simple roller blind to the technologically innovative Vision Blinds.
Before you think about fabrics, colours and finishes, there’s the small matter of what type of blind to go for, and it’s quite a list:
Roman (Fold/concertina-like an accordion)
Venetian (individual slats in wood or hard aluminium)
Roller (simple and stylish, but with endless design possibilities)
Pleated – ideal for awkward situations and shapes
Blinds for Velux windows
Vision Blinds – made from a revolutionary fabric, which alternates mesh and solid fabric panels, allowing complete control of light and privacy.
Motorised blinds (oh no it’s not lazy, just perfect for those hard to reach places)
Perfect fit blinds – fit snugly into the window or door recess & move with it.
Hygiene ultra fresh – adds an antimicrobial coating that inhibits growth of odour, mould and mildew
& even Fly Screens
There is also, of course, your choice of curtains.
The range of fabrics to choose from at Norwich Sunblinds is extraordinary – we are not tied to any one supplier, so can order in from a range of UK fabric suppliers, from the contemporary to the traditional, or even from further afield if you have something specific in mind.
The fabrics can be chosen to match or contrast, and bring impact to your decorative scheme. You can even customise the Larths – the straight piece at the bottom of the blind (the weight), normally not seen but it can be contrasted to add an extra dimension to your blind, or you can add beading or a narrow braid.
Instead of using a larth you can choose a café rod, and you can shape the bottom of your blind or add fancy finials. Cord pulls are also available in different decorative colours.
Put this together with our knowledge, experience, and great customer service , and you can rest assured that the result will be a stunning set of blinds or curtains for your kitchen.
