The kitchen is the soul of every house. It is the action centre that brings everyone together. A quality kitchen and a person who knows how to make it pop can be the difference between a happy house and a constant struggle. With that in mind, it’s so important to note how kitchen windows affect the mood and atmosphere of the room, as well as the people who spend most of their time in there.
While the kitchen is where meals are made, it is also the most dynamic and vibrant room. It is bound to get steamy, messy, crowded, and consistently exposed to all kinds of extremes. Therefore, kitchen windows and their furnishings are exposed to the same kinds of experience, grubby fingers, food, drinks, and cleaning chemicals. Just like the kitchen benches, the window furnishings should be designed to handle such beatings.
Thermalite shutters are all the rage in Auckland. They look just like wood, feel like wood, but do not rot like wood and discolour like other plastic shutters. The wonders of science make this material perfect for kitchen shutters because they can handle moisture and clean easily.
When you are working in the kitchen all day, it really helps when you don’t feel trapped. Most modern houses take this into account by building large kitchen windows so that people have a view of the outside world, but often those windows point at the sun. The solution to this is not blockout roller blinds because then you wouldn’t be able to see outside! The solution is sunscreen roller blinds. These stop the direct sunlight and most of the heat from the sun but are transparent enough for light to be seen through.
Another advantage of roller sunscreen blinds for the kitchen is that they can be motorised blinds that avoid the issue of coming into contact with grubby or greasy hands.
Venetian blinds are a popular choice for kitchens because of their ability to modulate the light flow and be pulled out of the way when they aren’t needed. The downside is that they can easily be broken by children or pets. The solution to this is to install heavy duty Venetians.
