Working from home is becoming a popular work option in today’s workforce, which means your home office needs to be comfortable with the right amount of lighting and privacy. That means no glare, a comfortable temperature, and the ability to control the amount of natural light coming in.
Here’s how you can find the best window treatments for your home office while staying within your budget and meeting your needs.
Understand The Room You Will Be Working In
The first step in finding the best window treatment for your home office is understanding the room the office will be in. How is it positioned in relation to the sun? Are the windows oddly shaped or large? How do they open?
Answering these questions will help you narrow down your choices and allow a professional like a Victor Shade guide you to the best treatment for you and your budget. By visiting a Showroom, you will be able to test out window treatments in person, get professional advice, and find your color and material.
Prevent Glare & Eye Strain
When working with a computer, you need to cut down on glare so you can see your screen and not strain your eyes. Choosing a window treatment that will prevent glare while allowing natural light to filter into the room will help boost productivity.
We recommend a screen/solar shade like Hunter Douglas Screen Shades. You can choose the opacity you desire as well as features like a dual roller for nighttime privacy, and a wide variety of lift systems to choose from, including motorization.
Control The Room’s Temperature
If the home office faces the sun during the hottest part of the day, you will want a shade that will keep the room a comfortable temperature. Honeycomb shades like the Duette® Architella® Honeycomb are designed with three insulating air pockets for energy efficiency, capable of lowering your monthly energy bill.
Enhance Child & Pet Safety
If you are a parent who is working from home to take care of your child, it is of the utmost importance to invest in window treatments that are child and pet friendly. This means no loose cords that can get caught around them, causing injury or even death.
At Victor Shade, we take child and pet safety seriously. We offer many cord-free lift systems such as Ultraglide®, LiteRise®, and PowerView® so you can choose a safe lift system for your home and peace of mind.
