Are you looking for blinds for your office? Blinds can help your clients feel more comfortable, they can block the sun and increase your building’s energy efficiency, and they can boost employee productivity. All kinds of blinds will work, but which office blinds will do the most for you? When you’re investing in blinds for your office, it’s important to weigh your options. Here are a few things you should consider about the possible commercial office blinds you can choose.

Motorized Blinds

Office blinds are very often motorized, especially when they cover very large windows, as blinds over large windows can be hard to open and close. Motorization can also allow you to automate the blinds so that they close and open at set times. This can be beneficial for the convenience and comfort of staff, especially if they work when the sun is setting or rising. Plus, taking responsibility off of your staff whenever possible is always a good plan.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds have fabric laid over the slats. They seem more personal, high-end, and much less modern than other blind types. This can work for some offices that cultivate a traditional, high-end, or luxurious feel. However, they are rarely found in offices, so if you’re interested in roman blinds, make sure you’re looking to make a statement with this window dressing option.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are a very cost-effective option, which makes them desirable in many offices. They are a sheet of fabric that rolls up and down to cover or reveal the window. They are great for offices where you may need absolute privacy in a specific room or from the outside world.

Roller blinds can be made from a variety of materials in many colors, which means that it is simple to find something that works with your office’s décor. However, they are either open or shut, while other blinds can be rolled down but still allow some light through. If this flexibility is important to you, another blind type might be better for you. We can always come in to do an on-site consultation to help you get a better idea of what will work for you.

Vertical Blinds

Do you have large glass walls in your office? They look great, but sometimes you need more privacy. Vertical blinds are an ideal way to add privacy to large glass walls. They can be drawn back so that the door is still accessible. Vertical blinds can also be great for very large office windows. They offer more light control than horizontal blinds because a part of the office can be completely shaded while another is not.
