Office Blinds Ideas

What's best?

As working from home has become the norm for many of us, the concept of a home office has evolved.

While a dedicated room with a door is still ideal, kitchens, dining tables, and other areas of our homes are doubling up as workspaces.

No matter where you set up shop when you begin your workday you want to feel good about walking into your office space each morning. A well-lit workspace is comfortable, inviting, motivating, and helps you focus.

Natural light - and the right window treatments can help you maximise its benefits— and play a big role in creating not only a pleasing atmosphere but a productive one.

Here are our tips and ideas for office blinds or shutters that might work for you.

Managing the Light

Daylight is by far the best option for concentration and well-being.

Managing the light in your home office is essential if you want to make the most of the available rays. Home office lighting should work day and night with protection from midday glare, but also be adequate for late-night projects.

Office Blinds that Reduce Glare

While sunlight is welcome, if you’re sitting at your desk with the office window behind you, the sun’s rays can cause excessive glare on your computer screen.

And that can lead to either squinting up close or stretching back to see better, neither of which is ideal.

You can significantly minimize glare and reduce eyestrain by controlling natural light with roller shades. Their clean lines and classic look make them versatile enough for any room including the home office. Our Roller Blinds feature beautiful textures and designs that complement a range of décor styles. And the choice of light-filtering sheer fabrics means you can easily reduce glare when needed.

You can also reduce glare and maximize natural light with our unique range of blinds with a Top-Down/Bottom-Up operation. Simply adjust the blinds from the top-down, bottom-up, or in a combination of the two to get the perfect balance of light and privacy.

The Best Blinds for Comfort

Up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows - and when you’re working, feeling too hot or too cold can interfere with your concentration.

But the right window treatments can help your overall comfort level.

The honeycomb design of our Duette® Architella® Shades, trap air at the window, creating an extra layer of insulation to keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design is an excellent choice for energy-efficient office blinds.

These special blinds not only provide superior insulation and comfort; they’re also available in a variety of beautiful fabric colours and special textures.

How to Minimize Distractions

While an office workspace with a view and lots of natural light is definitely a mood-booster, activity outside your windows, like dog-walkers or your kids playing in the garden, can be distracting.

The solution? Sheer fabrics. Our Pirouette® Shades, for example, feature soft fabric vanes that easily tilt to obscure your view to the outdoors (or conversely, for daytime privacy), while still enjoying the beauty of softly filtered light.

Neat and tidy

Even in a small office space that seems impossibly tight, you can try tricks like shelving that runs just below the ceiling for files you don’t access every day.

A clever space-saving trick combines storage with a visual to-do list; use clipboards on hooks to hold individual project materials and hang flat against the wall. If you have a dedicated space, give it a different feel to the rest of your home so you know when you step over the threshold, it’s time to concentrate. Space-saving white shutters are perfect for this cosy office space offering light control and privacy from passers-by.

Add Smart Home Convenience

When you’re in the middle of a video conference you don’t want to have to excuse yourself to lower the blinds when the sun’s rays start washing out your screen.

That’s where the convenience of automated control comes in. With automated blinds, you can adjust them without getting out of your chair.

Consider adding smart office blinds with PowerView® Automation that enables you to control your blinds with a remote, an app, or your voice (when integrated with a compatible smart-home system).
