How to Choose Window Coverings for the Office

Decorating any office space can be quite a challenge. You want to find a delicate balance between stylish and sophisticated. You want to be up on the trends, but you also want to keep in mind that these window coverings will need to last.

And, office window treatments do so much more than filter out light. They can set the tone for your brand, allow team members to work more efficiently, and create a more inviting workspace. So, how do choose window coverings for the office? Consider these four factors.

Office Blinds

1. Lighting

First thing's first: let's evaluate how lighting can affect your employees' productivity. Low light is known for its calming affect...but it can also put your employees to sleep. Bright lights make people happier and improve energy levels. Letting in more bright, natural light can help to increase employee satisfaction.

Now consider what window coverings will work best for your space. Some offices love to go simple with cellular shades. Others want to go modern with remote access coverings or Smart shades. We also recommend solar shades, which can help reduce glare without blocking natural light. (It's a win-win for anyone working at a desk job near the windows).

2. Brand Message

When considering what window treatments to include in your office, you also want to consider what kind of message they'll send employees and guests. Do you want to be techy or classic? Subtle or a little over-the-top? You decide. Once you've decided on a specific style, you can choose a material and color to match the mood of your space. Many offices choose window treatments that match company colors to increase brand consistency.

3. Functionality

Next, you want to install office window treatments that work for you. Functionality is key to a simple work area—so don't overcomplicate things. Consider the practical benefits of specific window treatments, like blocking the sun or making it easier for adjustment. For example, if you don't want employees to be interrupted every few hours by the sun changing positions, consider motorization options—you (or your employees) will be able to adjust the blinds with a click of a switch.

4. Budget

Last, but certainly not least, you'll need to consider your budget. What do you want to spend on blinds or other window treatments for your office space? While really affordable options are available, you'll want to remember that nicer window treatment brands may last much longer. (And, in an office space, how often do you want to switch out the blinds?).
