Office Blinds – What Works?

Office blinds, balancing style and practicality

We get so many calls from customers needing office blinds. Sometimes the call is for their home office and sometimes for an office building. These customers tend to feel overwhelmed at the daunting burden of excessive costs and of finding the right blind for their space.

Studies suggest that natural light in an office creates a more effective work environment, with decreased rates of depression and better quality work.  In fact, around the world there is a movement to structure offices in a way that all offices have windows that allow for maximum natural light to enter.

In certain instances, the sheerweave roller blind is the best choice.  This type of blind has the remarkable property of being able to reduce glare onto the computer screens while allowing in most of the outdoor light.  Maintenance is easy and they can stay in the closed position most of the time. This means less fussing over the blinds and more focusing on the work at hand!  Sheerweaves are wipeable and durable, as well.

The Boardroom

For a boardroom with a projector for presentations, often a blockout roller blind is the best option.  This allows for maximum darkening of the room so the presentation can be clearly viewed by all participants.

Budget considerations

A budget friendly option is our go-to 25mm.
