Although some people think that commercial office spaces require function and not decoration, in reality, it’s possible to have both! If you’re in the market for new window treatments for your business, speak with a trained consultant at Perfect Fit Window Fashions in Estero. We’ll be happy to help you make your choice. Meanwhile, here are some things to think about in preparation.
Window Covering Styles
Window treatments can stand out or blend in—color and texture makes a treatment stand out to become the focal point, and neutrals will help it blend in to the wall. If window treatments blend in, they simply serve their function—controlling light and privacy levels and even offering UV protection to your workspace. Silhouette® Window Shadings are a great choice.
Orientation – Horizontal or Vertical
There are many options available in both vertical and horizontal window treatments. Horizontal window coverings work best on windows that are taller than they are wide, while vertical window coverings are most suitable for windows that are wider than they are tall. Skyline™ Gliding Panels work well in both applications.
Window Covering Functions
Diffusing or deflecting light and sound can be important in an office. Diffused light is softer and less harsh to the eyes, but deflected light can add natural beauty to a room, especially if the windows don’t get direct sunlight. All window treatments diffuse sound to a certain degree, but fabric products seem to work the best. Harder surfaces, such as plantation shutters, wooden blinds and verticals, and aluminum blinds, are not as effective. Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades are an excellent choice for blocking sound and are the most energy-efficient shade on the market today.
Operating Options for Window Coverings
There are a variety of operating systems from Hunter Douglas Window Fashions. Choose from PowerView™ motorization, LiteRise®, UltraGlide®, and more. You might also want to consider the top-down/bottom-up style, which gives you the ultimate control.
