The 5 Best Window Treatment Options for Your Home Office
If you work from home, you may ask, “What are the best window treatment option for your home office?” Recent events have led organizations and employees worldwide to embrace working from home. This newfound flexibility is a boon for employees as they can focus on their work while being in the comfort of their homes.
To aid productivity, your home office requires the right atmosphere besides the essentials. That may include a table, a chair, a computer/laptop, Wi-Fi, natural light that doesn’t cause screen glare but has enough light so you look your best on Zoom calls – and privacy.
Here are five window treatment ideas for your home office to get the perfect mix of attractiveness and practicality.
1. Helpful Roller & Cellular Shades
Roller Shades are the most preferred choice among house owners. They are great for home office windows and go well with all interiors. Roller shades offer tons of benefits, and our customers’ experience with roller shades has always been excellent.
Sun rays irritate you, take your productivity down, and harm your body. For example, U.V. rays are harmful to your skin and can cause skin cancer. Also, U.V. rays damage your house furniture as well. However, with high-quality roller solar shades, you can prevent 88% of the harmful U.V. rays from entering inside, thus protecting you and your house furniture from their ill effects.
Cellular shades offer light control like all other window treatments, but that’s not all. In addition, they provide superior heating control compared to most other blinds and treatment options. Cellular shades are also referred to as honeycomb shades due to the honeycomb look from the side. The material zig-zags against each other, looking like a beehive. They can be blackout to allow for perfect screen viewing or light filtering, softly diffusing the light.
2. Versatile Blinds & Plantation Shutters
Blinds give you more control over the light entering your office because you can close the slats to cover the entire window or rotate the slats for more light or view according to your needs. Also, the slats on some blinds are routeless, which can block most of the light entering your office. Blinds could be ideal for a room like an office where your lighting needs can change often.
Shutters also have louvers that can open and close. In addition to controlling the sunlight you let into your home office, shutters provide privacy better than most window treatments. You can also enjoy the benefits of indoor ventilation without worrying about people looking in while the windows are open.
3. Customizable Shade Pairings
We often get asked, ‘do curtains and blinds work together?’ The answer is ‘yes’ – when paired, the two can create a beautiful design statement and ensure adequate light blocking and privacy control.
But among all, fabric roman shades are famous for their unique look and incredible quality. But what happens when you have existing blinds like real wood blinds, aluminum blinds, or faux wood blinds in your office? What if you are looking to enrich the appearance of the windows with roman shades? What you are looking for is something called ‘Layering.’ Hanging roman shades over the existing blinds not only enhances the aesthetics of your space but also improves the quality and functionality. Installing roman shades is brilliant as they can charm your home office, whether it is more traditional or contemporary.
Combining curtain panels with roller shades is a beautiful and functional look. The roller shades will provide an aesthetically pleasing privacy feature, while the curtain panels offer a layered, more formal appearance. What a great way to add different patterns and textures to your home office.
