Bring the natural beauty and durability of wood into your kitchen with wooden blinds from Wooden Blinds Direct.

From warm oaks and rich walnuts to soft creams and stylish dark shades, our wide range of wooden venetian blinds is the perfect place to discover the right window dressing for your kitchen. Best of all, we offer a selection of high quality faux wood blinds, which are also ideal for kitchen windows.


Real wooden kitchen blinds

Real wood blinds offer a number of benefits to the kitchen. Nearly 180 degrees of rotation means that light control is more precise than any other blind, which is perfect for sunny mornings. The rotating slats can also be angled with your privacy in mind, preventing any unwanted views from outside. Our kitchens are often overlooked by neighbours, so it’s important for you and your family to feel safe. At the same time, we all spend a lot of time in this room, so a flow of natural light and fresh air is always appreciated. Fortunately, the structure of wooden blinds allows for this, so your kitchen can be a bright and breezy space for you to enjoy.

Whether your kitchen is a country cottage-inspired space with plenty of checks, duck egg and shaker style cabinets, or a trendy kitchen diner boasting sleek lines, gloss finishes and modern appliances, wooden blinds will work wonders. The natural grain and warmth of wood lends it to a number of interior decor styles, so shoppers needn’t hunt high and low for a particular shade or pattern to coordinate. Wooden blinds can also be layered with additional window dressings, such as voiles and curtains. This is a great option for homeowners that want a softer window display, or who want to inject a little more colour.

Wood is inherently durable and hard wearing, making it the perfect material for a blind that needs to stand the test of time. Of course, if your window is located just above a sink, you may be concerned about your blinds getting wet and warping. That’s where faux wood blinds come in.

 


Faux wood kitchen blinds

Faux wood venetian blinds are constructed to replicate the look and feel of real wood, but with the practical benefits of PVC. Not only is this material cheaper, but it is also water resistant, making it perfect for environments prone to high moisture. PVC is also highly resistant to heat, so your faux wooden blinds needn’t be a concern if your kitchen is small.

Faux wooden blinds are very easy to clean, requiring only a soft cloth and polish or detergent for more stubborn stains. They are available in a stunning woodgrain texture, providing the same warming appeal as real basswood blinds offer. Choose from a selection of colours and finishes, including grey, cream and oak, and treat yourself to a more practical type of wooden blind for your kitchen.

How to install & maintain

Both real wood and faux wooden blinds are easy to install in your kitchen, requiring little more than a pencil, measuring tape and drill. Follow our simple instructions here. When it comes to maintaining them, try to dust on a weekly basis to avoid too much build up. Use a microfibre cloth or an ostrich feather duster, which is proven to collect and trap more dust and dirt than other materials. You should also keep your wooden blinds as dry as possible, so if they ever get splashed, be sure to dry thoroughly with a cloth.
