Window treatments add privacy, security, and style to any room, including your home office. The right window covering will reduce glare on your screens to help you stay productive at any hour of the day. The blinds, shades, shutters, or drapes you choose for your office will have different needs to serve than the ones you select for your living room or bedroom. The ideal window treatments will have certain features and keeping these in mind will help you choose the best shades for your home office.
Important Features for Home Office Window Treatments
Many who work in an office are accustomed to artificial overhead lighting. While this type of lighting always has a purpose, it will help you be more productive and comfortable working from home if you have as much natural light as possible. Sunlight can improve your mood, increase your levels of vitamin D, and help keep your body’s natural sleep schedule aligned.
If your shades are damaged or hold on to dirt, they’ll take away from your time spent working on what’s important. Shopping for new window coverings more often than necessary also wastes your time and money. And don’t forget what potential clients or customers may think of your credibility if your office is in disrepair.
It’s essential for your workspace to look professional and pleasing to the eye. The function is always important, but you can’t forget about style when choosing window coverings. Ask one of our window treatment specialists about what look would be best for the current decor of your home office.
Designer Roller Shades have a clean, classic look that fits well with both modern and classic decor styles. Roller shades feature precision engineering to guarantee smooth, silent operation every time. They are available in over 400 fabrics, and we suggest a light-filtering opacity in a neutral color for the most professional look.
Provenance® Woven Wood Shades provide an earthy, organic touch to your office, and also filter light beautifully. You can opt for an unlined version for the most view-through and light or have an optional light-filtering liner attached to provide a bit more privacy and less direct sunlight.
Blinds are another great style for an office. Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds are available in the thinnest slats for an ultra-modern, professional aesthetic. You can choose from many finishes, including matte, metallic, and marble, to blend well with any color and style decor. Parkland® Wood Blinds and EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds are two more choices that will look great. Hardwood provides a warm, comforting feeling, while faux wood can tolerate warmer climates and is available in solid colors and stain-like finishes.
