When it’s time to decorate your office or workspace, don’t forget to pay attention to window dressings. Curtains are often far too fussy for an office and cleaning them is an extra chore you can easily do without.
Custom-made blinds would seem to be a more sensible solution. They’re practical, smart and professional, giving your workspace a clean modern look. But with many different types of window blinds on the market, which ones should you go for?
There are various material factors that will influence your choice of blinds. How sunny is your office space? Do you get a glare? Are any of your computer screens facing the window? In a bright sunny office, it can be uncomfortable to stare at a computer screen. If your desks are located near windows, choose blinds where the incoming light can be adjusted. Do you need privacy? It’s important to choose blinds that allow you to vary the amount of light coming in.
So, with all that, which ones are best?
- Venetian blinds are a popular solution for offices. Offering excellent light and privacy control at the twist of a rod, they provide a sleek modern appearance to complement any workspace. With varying slat widths, there’s a huge range of colors and finishes available, including wood and aluminum, to suit any office décor and room size. Venetian blinds are also a useful option if you need privacy while you work.
- Vertical blinds are particularly suitable for large areas such as full-length windows or French doors, and they’re a great value for your money too. Like Venetian blinds, it’s easy to control the amount of incoming light by tilting, closing, and drawing the blinds in various configurations, making vertical blinds the most versatile choice of custom office blinds.
- Roller blinds are a simple, robust, and cost-effective solution for all types of home office spaces where the light needs to be softened. Being either ‘open’ or ‘closed’, they don’t offer the same amount of light control as other types of blinds; however, especially when fitted with a blackout coating, roller blinds are particularly ideal for the home office that uses projection screens.
