4 Best Home Office Window Treatment Ideas

Custom Blinds

Remote working is becoming more popular each year, with many businesses seeing the benefits of letting their workforce stay at home. And, as workers get used to their home office environment, many find that they don’t have the best set-up.

The right window treatments are one of the most important decisions you have to make. Get it wrong and your home office can be noisy, too hot or too cold and the light may shine onto your computer. Choose the right office blinds and you can work comfortably, no matter what the weather is doing outside. Here’s an overview of the best blinds for home offices.

1. Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are often seen in normal office settings. This means, they are also a great option for home offices. One of the biggest benefits is that they offer excellent light control, allowing you to open or close them, or tilt the louvres to an angle that suits and helps to minimise screen glare. They can also be made to fit large windows, or patio doors, which is handy if your home office is at the dining room table!

2. Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are another great option for home offices. They are cost effective and are easy to control light by simply tilting the louvres. When angled shut, they do block out light well, which is handy for those zoom meetings you might have. You can order them in PVC, wood or aluminium and they’re easy to look after, only needing a quick wipe down occasionally.

3. Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are a simple and affordable option for home offices. However, they don’t filter and block light as well as the other two blinds mentioned. To combat this, you can opt for a blackout fabric or order double roller blinds, which come with two roller blinds on one bracket. These give you greater light control and greater energy efficiency during the winter and summer months.

4. Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are made from one large panel, so don’t have the same type of light control like with the other blinds mentioned. However, they can be made from a blockout sunscreen fabric which does a good job at controlling room temperature and will prevent your home office from turning into an oven. Choose from a range of style options to match in with your home décor and enjoy the fact that they’re extremely durable and will last for many years.
