Here at Appeal Home Shading, we’ve installed window blinds in all sorts of places. Residential homes make up the majority of our work, but we’ve also worked in offices, cafes and bars. We’re very proud of our range of commercial blinds and are committed to making the best window blinds for the workplace.

We also get multiple requests for blinds from the restaurant business. These are natural places for window blinds as restaurateurs will know that light levels can influence the atmosphere in their establishments. But which are the best window blinds? Let’s look at the options.

Choosing Blinds For A Restaurant

When it comes to designing restaurant blinds, there are a couple of subtle differences to picking them for a house. Restaurant windows tend to be larger, so picking one suitable for a wide area is important. At Appeal, we offer a range of large window blinds which are perfect for such instances. We’d also suggest picking remote-operated blinds rather than ones with a manual cord; this will stop any “helpful” patrons attempting to lower or raise your blinds and causing accidental damage. 

It’s also worth mentioning that whatever blinds you go for, you’ll need to keep them clean. Your floors might be sparkling and your tables look fantastic, but if you’ve got a stained or dirty window blind on display, it’ll put potential diners off their food. Lastly, think about how your blinds will match the decor. They might look terrific in the brochure, but will they clash with your existing aesthetic?

Restaurant Window Treatments

With all this in mind, what type of blind should you go for? We’d argue that one of the best choices would be solar blinds. These are designed to reduce the heat gain and glare from the sun’s rays, and can also be made semi-transparent. They’ll help keep your dining area cooler, and stop patrons from being dazzled by the sunlight reflecting off their cutlery, while still giving them some view of the outside world. 

Let’s not forget though that the dining area isn’t the only part of the restaurant, what about the kitchen? If this is completely separated from the dining area, you won’t need to worry about the decor as much and will have more practical concerns. Look for blinds that are easy to clean and water-resistant. There’s going to be extra moisture in the air with your cooking hobs working every day, so you’ll need something durable and reliable. In a setting like that, you can’t really go wrong with classic roller blinds
