Blinds are an important addition to kitchen windows, bringing your home design ideas to life. Most of us have them as window treatments on our windows, and many doors offer a small window space to hang them.
There are many beautiful kitchen blinds to buy when it’s time for new one’s – they come in numerous colors and materials with nearly endless possibility. But beauty isn’t the only thing kitchen blinds provide – in fact, it’s only part of the benefits they offer.
We look at the aesthetics so much that we tend to forget the protection and sunlight they give us. Blinds keep the bad stuff out and let the sunshine in our daily lives.
Why Privacy is an Important Factor in Choosing Your Blinds
What many people forget to consider is how effective blinds will be at performing the most essential duties of any window treatment ideas.
There are two important steps to take before you buy blinds. One is to ask or read about the amount of light they will allow in – the other is the degree of privacy the blinds will be capable of providing.
Blinds Protect Our Sense of Privacy – We’d Be Naked Without Them
We feel safe in our home at night with the blinds all closed up. What’s sad, is that there are people in this world that we cannot trust. Having your privacy is important but not something thought about all too much – until it’s invaded; if you’ve ever had your privacy violated, you know very well how life changing it can be.
For a woman it is especially uncomfortable to think about someone looking into your home as you carry on your daily routine. And that is why we should take such care in choosing our blinds. They protect us from what’s outside, day and night.
Blinds Let the Sunshine Into Our Lives – When We Need It!
Sometimes we want a little light to sneak into our rooms, other times we want to light up our homes with warm sunlight. Blinds let us do both. They’re like our very own dimmer switch on mother nature. If we could only figure out a way to use them on certain people…
If you have a kitchen with a uPVC Window above your sink, you may like to open the blinds during the day to see the flowers swaying in the wind – the birds enjoying the day in your backyard. Blinds give the control to let the perfect amount of light into your kitchen, and at the same time see what’s out there, on our terms.
Herbs and aloe grow steady on a house windows seal while blinds create a backdrop for tiny landscapes. Valance’s rise from the ordinary to host gingerbread men, matching ivory colored blinds, and a morning sun sweeping across the open kitchen. That’s a great start to a new morning…
The kitchen is many people’s favorite room in the home so having the right amount sunlight is more important than we give much thought. This is especially true when it’s time to entertain family and friends with a specially prepared meal.
A dark kitchen is not the right setting for that kind of gathering during the day.
The benefits to blinds are many, more so than only how they look hanging in your kitchen. Faux wood and Venetian blinds are two of the best at allowing for eye appeal, privacy, and the capability to allow massive amounts of light into your kitchen. Fabrics are best avoided in kitchens where the window is located above a sink area. This ensures maximum privacy and keeps you out of the dry cleaners a little less often.
Good luck on your hunt for the perfect blinds…
