French Country Kitchens
French country could be described as the perfect balance of warmth and finesse. This style dives into the detail without being overly pretentious. Features such as soft, muted or pastel colour palettes, large kitchen islands and under sink skirting are commonly showcased in these kitchens that boast effortless elegance and rustic charm.
Recommended Kitchen Window Treatments: Tecwood Blinds (which are also ideal for the kitchen as they are heat-resistant and splash-resistant) or Tecwood Shutters will work well with the soft touches and muted colour palettes, and Timber Shutters will enhance the warmth of this design style with their wooden finish.

As one of the most popular kitchen styles, Traditional kitchens are all about finding the balance between convenience and luxury. Granite or marble countertops, neutral colour schemes and stainless-steel appliances are recurring elements in each traditional kitchen. If you love embellishments and decorative accessories like crown mouldings, then perhaps this style is for you!
Recommended Kitchen Window Treatments: Aluminium Venetian Blinds would complement the sleek and luxurious look of this design style (we have a wide range of metallic finishes for these blinds that would pair beautifully with stainless steel appliances).

Light and breezy and laid-back are three words we’d use to encapsulate the spirit of coastal kitchens. For those that don’t want summer to end, this design style will add loads of sunny, care-free spirit all year ‘round! A dominant white interior with splashes of colour and natural textures (created with wood, glass or greenery) often characterise this style and help produce a casual, laid-back atmosphere.
Recommended Kitchen Window Treatments: Our Fauxwood Venetian Blind would work best with this design due to its natural wooden appearance. If you’re going for a coastal design in a coastal location, then this is ideal as it is not as susceptible to weathering as genuine wood and fares well in moist areas. You could also use Bamboo Blinds here.

Functional meets modern in contemporary kitchen design. This style incorporates smart-storage, impressive, cutting-edge technology, minimalist cabinetry, clean lines, large windows and metallic accents to construct an elegant and intelligent look and feel.
Recommended Kitchen Window Treatments: You could soften this design style and balance out the heavy metallics with our Lantex Fabric Venetian Blinds. They are 100% waterproof and almost impossible to break! To make these blinds even more contemporary in style, you could also motorise them to fit in with the high-tech focus.
