Arguably the busiest communal area in your home, the kitchen is the place where daily breakfast discussions are had and dinner time preparations are made. So, when it comes to designing a kitchen aesthetic for both practicality and style, it’s important to consider the amount of time you’re likely to spend in there, creating a space you’ll be proud to use for years to come as a result.
Whether you’re looking for a contemporary window decoration that will complement your modern room or a more traditional family-friendly design, today we’re showcasing just 4 of many curtain and blind styles sure to suit a variety of kitchen aesthetics.
For the family home
When it comes to creating a warm and friendly feel in your family kitchen, an injection of colour won’t go amiss. By endorsing a splash of vibrant pinks and illustrated prints through your choice of window blinds, your kitchen space will be highlighted as a bright and cheerful room.
Additionally, by choosing a bold foreground with a neutral background, you’ll be able to decorate the rest of your room in a variety of ‘art homework’ masterpieces without the danger of them clashing with the rest of your interior. Not only are blinds a beautiful styling choice, but with all Montgomery’s blinds adhering to the EU Child Safety Regulation, you can rest assured your children are protected from any tangles when left alone next to your kitchen windows.
For a contemporary twist
If you’re looking to infuse your kitchen with stylish, contemporary chic then look no further than this unique range of silver curtains. Combining a variety of subtle silver, pink and blue hues, each item in this range is sure to become a welcomed addition to your modern kitchen.
For a state-of-the-art white kitchen, combine your glistening granite worktop with a sleek silver curtain. Not only will this provide your room with a stunning finishing touch, but it will break up your all-white base and give it a more personal, fashionable feel.
For a traditional style
Alternatively, for a more traditional look, why not try incorporating terracotta tones and earthy greens into your window display? Not only will this create a fluid transition to the garden your window faces in the summer but it will invite elements of the outdoors inside in the chillier months.
Expertly made in the UK by some of the country's finest seamstresses, these blinds will cloak your windows with class while ensuring your wooden cabinets and tiled floors look the part too.
For the quirky household
Contrastingly, for a fun and functional kitchen, introducing a bold graphic print into your interior decor is a savvy way to put your own stamp on your home’s style.
Whether you choose a vibrant, newspaper-inspired blind to coordinate with the rest of your quirky, monochrome kitchen interior, or pick a crochet-style design that allows you to select a variety of colourful appliances to dot around your room, adding a touch of personality in your kitchen is an easy opportunity that shouldn't be missed.
From a flowery window ensemble that invites an element of summer into your home throughout the year, to a beautiful block of colour that makes your kitchen’s interior flow naturally, when it comes to selecting a blind or curtain for your kitchen, your own personal style should be at the heart of every decision. Choose wisely and you’ll never want to draw the curtains or roll up your blinds again!
