If you’ve recently made the transition to working from home and are looking for some home office inspiration, we can help you create a more focused and functional workspace.

Home office blinds

Though you might be short on space and missing the facilities of a dedicated office, it’s still possible to create a work zone that is comfortable and functional, encouraging concentration, motivation and maximum productivity. Whether you’ve got a dedicated home office or you’re setting up camp in another room, one of the most important things to consider is your window dressing.

Which type of blinds are best for a home office?

The below words will provide you with the inspiration needed for your new office. The right blind can bring numerous benefits to your workspace. Not only will it control the light, prevent glare and provide privacy, it will also help to cut down on outside noise and distractions.

Day and Night blinds for your home office

One of the best options is a Day and Night blind. As these blinds roll down, the alternating strips of fabric slide against each other, moving between one block of colour or a set of stripes. As well as looking stylish, this versatile design will enable you to fully embrace the sunshine, create a gentle filter of light, or black things out completely which will help set your desired mood in your home office.

Using Day and Night for privacy in your office

It also means privacy levels can be arranged to your exact requirements, so you don’t have to worry about nosy neighbours or passers-by, especially if your new work station looks out onto a busy road.

Our Day and Night blinds are available in a variety of colours including grey, cream, white, gold, pistachio green and chocolate brown. These neutral, sophisticated tones will lend perfectly to several interior themes, so your new blind is sure to tie in with the rest of the room’s décor.

Venetian blinds for your home office

Venetian blinds are inherently functional; the rotating slats can be angled to a precise degree, so you can achieve an exact level of light control and privacy. You can also enjoy a filter of light and fresh air while blocking the views outside – again, perfect for home offices that might be overlooked.

In terms of style, Venetian blinds have a contemporary look that lends to most rooms in the home.

For example, a wooden blind will be a great addition to a classic or country style space, whereas an aluminium Venetian blind is a better choice for contemporary and minimalist rooms.
