While working in the corporate world can mean spending hours in a cubicle or windowless office filled with shades of gray or beige, working from home is thankfully not restricted to such stagnant surroundings.
Your home is a functional and enjoyable place to work and it can reflect your personal tastes with the colors and patterns you choose. Think beyond the traditional desk, file cabinet and hardware and view your home office as an opportunity for a fresh and interesting interior design space.
You can design the perfect home office space with your preferred style of furniture, wall art and accessories. But without proper lighting, your effort is wasted.
Natural light is the cheapest and most environmentally friendly source of illumination and you can make the best use of it through the right window treatments. Window blinds are a versatile solution that comes in a variety of colors, styles and sizes.
Computer monitors, tablets and phones have highly reflective screens and you’ll need to filter light properly so you can see your screen without being lost in darkness. This feat is easily achieved through the use of window blinds because you can close them partially and still block direct sunlight.
With blinds only partially closed, you’re also free to view the scenery outside your windows when you pause working. If you find that the view is too distracting and calling you away from work, closing the window blinds completely helps.
Even if the room where your home office is has tall windows or even doors leading to the outside, blinds are an ideal covering. Floor length vertical blinds cover any height door or window. Options for vertical blinds are diverse and have evolved beyond the vinyl strips you’re familiar with. Sliding panel vertical blinds give a clean, modern look to your home office while filtering light effectively. Vertical blinds also make a space feel larger, a nice feature when you spend a lot of time working in your home office.
Sometimes floor space for a home office is limited and you have to put your desk right up against a window. If you’re going to have to worry about being able to reach the adjustment levers the solution is remote control window blinds. You can open, close, lift and lower the blinds at the touch of a button without having to climb over your desk or reach behind it. Not only does this easily and quickly filter light, it also provides privacy after dark when you’re working late hours. These types of blinds will help keep your home office cool, during the hot summer months.
One advantage window blinds have over traditional drapes and curtains is that they’re easier to clean. They also allow air flow even when partially closed and are more durable than other window coverings. Working from home can have its share of challenges but working with your interior design tastes shouldn’t be one of them. Create a space that is conducive to work and enjoyable to spend time in.
