Blinds are one of those things that no one really thinks about cleaning until they suddenly notice how gross they are. Once you notice, it’s kind of hard to stop noticing. Kitchen blinds are one of the worst offenders. Because kitchen windows are often placed above the sink, the blinds often collect food particles or dried on liquid splashed onto them from doing dishes. So, instead of leaning over your sink to wipe down aluminum slats that end up bent, let’s talk blind replacement. Here are some kitchen blinds that are easy to clean.
Window shades are the kind of shades found in classrooms. They’re made of a thick material that rolls up when opened. They’re not the most elegant blinds, but they do their job well and are easy to clean. Plus, you can get shades in a blackout design that blocks out sunlight completely.
It’s easier to see when something splatters onto window shades than aluminum slats because it’s one flat plane. The benefit of noticing faster is that you can wipe off splatters before they dry.
Even if you don’t notice right away, window shades being one piece of material is a huge benefit to ease of cleaning. When it comes time to clean them, you can simply grab a hot washcloth and scrub them down, using the window as a backboard.
Window screens come with the same benefits as window shades except, instead of blackout capabilities, they screen sunlight. That means, you can get indirect sunlight even with them closed. If you want to up the ante, you can open them up and get full, direct sunlight instead.
Hard Slats That Are Easy to Wipe Down
Shades and screens aren’t for everyone. If you want kitchen blinds that are easy to clean but look more like standard blinds, you’ll love Magic Lite. These blinds are made of slats that are broad and wooden. You get maximum lighting control by adjusting the slats, from blackout to complete exposure.
What makes these different from standard blinds is that, because the slats are broad and wooden, they’re much easier to wipe down. You can put a small amount of pressure on them with your damp cloth without them bending out of shape like aluminum does. Plus, they look better on a daily basis. The broader slats are more refined. Plus, because they don’t have to be curved to prevent bending like aluminum slats do, they’re completely flat, which looks more modern.
