With Pancake Day just around the corner, the organised among us will already be stocking up on flour, milk, eggs and lemons for next week. Of course with the fun also comes the risk of kitchen nightmares. Every year countless people become a little over-excited when flipping their pancakes and end up getting them stuck to the ceiling.
It’s inevitable that we all have the occasional culinary disaster, but choosing your décor carefully can help to prevent any mishaps from causing lasting damage. Tiles or vinyl flooring are easy to mop, while a protective cloth helps to protect your table from spillages.
When it comes to your kitchen windows, there are lots of practical and stylish dressings to consider. Luckily Heather Evans from the Web-Blinds team is on hand to help. She has picked out a few of her favourite options from the range.
“Shutters make a stunning statement wherever they are used and they’re incredibly durable too. Our North Coast range is perfect for this space, as the clever waterproof material will not warp in steamy or humid conditions.
“If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to shutters, then our Fauxwood blinds provide a striking alternative. They combine the natural style of wood with the strength and water-resistance of PVC, giving you the best of both worlds.
“For windows over the kitchen sink which are prone to splashes, our innovative Teflon coated Vertical blinds are another fantastic choice. These can easily be wiped clean, for a look that’s as good as new every time.
“Last but not least, Roller blinds provide a simple yet elegant impression. Their lightweight fabric is ideal for this area of the home, as heavy drapes can sometimes retain cooking aromas. What’s more, they leave plenty of room on the window sill for storage.”
