Working from Home? Give Your Home Office a New Look with Window Treatments

In recent years, a growing number of businesses are now choosing to reduce their overheads by having their staff work from home. This means that we are spending a lot more time at home than we did before, which can become a bit monotonous when we are staring at the same wall’s day in and day out.

When working from home, it is important to have a dedicated office space that you can close the door on while you are not working. One way to make this space an inviting place to be is to make the place feel comfortable with ergonomic furniture, interesting wall hangings and window treatments.

Window treatments are also an important way of helping to stay focused with work, and avoiding distractions from the outside world during the working day. If you are needing to do a lot of video conferencing you may want to reduce the glare from natural light, or alternatively, you may want to increase the natural light in the room, window treatments are the way to go.

We are able to provide suggestions for window treatments that are suitable for a home office, so read on and see if any of our ideas suit the vision you have for your space.

Roman Shades

These are a traditional window treatment with soft fabric that hangs in layers when the blind is extended. These blinds provide a gentle flow of fabric, which is pleasing to the eye and can be made in any colour fabric, to complement the existing décor of the room.

Roller Shades

A common window treatment for the modern office that is versatile and does the job easily and effortlessly. These blinds provide a sleek, smooth surface to cover the windows, which can be opened and closed without much trouble.

Woven Shades

For a more casual, or rustic office space, woven bamboo or straw shades will reduce a lot of the light coming into the room, while still allowing a mottled view of the outside world through the thin slats of the wood. These blinds work fine during the day, but at night when there is a light on in the office, they will be completely see-through. If you are working from your home office a lot at night and require privacy, you may want to add a blackout liner as well.

Blackout Liners

With any of the window treatments that we have discussed here (or any that we have not discussed) blackout liners can be added to assist with reducing the amount of light coming in or out of the room, through the window.
