How to Find the Perfect Blinds for Your Office
To get the most from your office interior, never overlook a major component of the office decor – the blinds! As a place that workers inhabit all year long, the blinds are used to block the light and provide shade and to retain heat. Come sun or snow, blinds are as functional as they are pleasing to the eye.
It’s therefore important to optimise your choice of blinds to fit in line with their use in the office, whether it’s a single room or an entire multi-storey complex. There are plenty of styles and unique features to choose from with tailor made blinds, so don’t forget to spec them out with help from a blinds specialist before placing your order.
Here’s what you should consider before refitting your office with new blinds.
Yes, vertical blinds in shades of off-white and grey are synonymous with offices but do not disregard them! Modern vertical blinds come with all the benefits of traditional vertical blinds but with the added bonus that you can choose from a wide array of colours to subtly fit in with your branding. What’s more, people often admire this style of blinds more for transforming an office staple into a style statement.
This classic blind is everywhere thanks to its timeless style and varied choice of materials. Venetian blinds are also heavily associated with interior venetian office blinds, thanks to American movie bosses tugging down on the slats to get a better view of the office. Think J. Jonah Jameson in Spiderman, or even the light and dark backdrop behind Don Corleone in The Godfather – all made possible by classic Venetian blinds.
Roller blinds lend themselves to customisation, thanks to a whole host of colours. You’re bound to find the right shade to match your company branding, while making the office fresh and inviting once more. The clean simple lines of a roller blind mean that they require minimal maintenance. Spec super robust materials, or wipe clean fabrics and you’ll never have to worry about your made-to-measure roller blinds.
When you have blinds fitted will depend on a case-by-case basis. If you’re having a full office refurb, then new blinds should be installed as soon as the majority of decorating is finished and is easiest before furnishings arrive onsite.
However, blinds specialists will slot in at a time that’s most convenient to you and offer advice on how to prepare for delivery and installation. If you’re having blinds fitted in an existing office, talk to a blinds supplier about their methods of keeping disruption to a minimum. And always get in touch sooner rather than later.
