Heading in to Spring, heat and light is most likely to become an issue, so finding the right shade to harness the effects of the sun and seasons is essential. Home office blinds can keep warm or cool in or out, depending on your needs.
Duette® Shades and in particular fabrics can deflect the glare from the sun that heats up a room. Or, if you decide to make the most of a hot summer’s day and work in the evening instead, then keep the heat in the room as the sun drops with the same blinds. The gauzy structure of many of our fabrics, such as some of those used in Pirouette®, maximises any available daylight by dispersing it gently across the room, preventing the need to switch on electrical light for longer.
When you do need to call on electric light, remember home office lighting can still mean healthy lighting. Vitamin D can be an issue for many, especially those who work indoors who don’t get as much time outdoors as they’d like. A natural daylight bulb can work wonders for lifting spirits, as can contemporary pendant lighting that addresses a more demanding need. Look for those that can deliver at least 2,500 lux (the measure of light that lifts mood) and can change tone as you like from bright to warm.
