So, go for blinds that can easily block outside light from coming inside. For your kitchen, you can go for curtain, as they will let a lot of natural sunlight to come inside which is very much necessary while cooking.

Therefore, you will have to clean them everyday and that is not a happy thing to do. Curtains on the other side are light and have to be cleaned only once in a week. However, if you want durable and long lasting window dressings then opt for blinds that last longer than curtains.
