Many people have a space in their home that they use for work. Whether it’s a dedicated space for use as a home office or a mixed-use room, focusing on your job without a dedicated workspace can prove to be very difficult. One way to overcome this is to make your home office area feel more like work and less like home. This is best achieved through a combination of design and decor.
At Window Fashions of Northern California, we understand how balancing light and sound can be a significant obstacle in how people get work done at home. That’s why we offer window treatments from Hunter Douglas. Some people perform best in a minimalist room while others prefer bright, bold decor. Whichever style you choose, the right window treatments can help set the tone for your ideal home office environment.
Window Treatments That Absorb Sound
When you work in a traditional office, you’re surrounded by others who are performing similar tasks. Working from home brings a whole new set of sounds, such as kids, the TV, neighbors, and pets. Custom drapery made from heavy fabric like wool, or cellular shades will help to drown out the exterior sound. Duette® Honeycomb Shades reduce outdoor noise by up to 70% and will also help improve your room’s acoustics to make for better online meetings and conference calls.
Block Out Light with Custom Shades
The right amount of light is essential for you to do your best work. Too little light and you may encounter adverse physical effects like eye stain, or worse—you might nod off at your desk. Too much light and the glare on your computer screen may be unbearable. The answer? Gently filter light with sheer shadings.
Silhouette® Sheer Shades are constructed with opaque vanes hung between two sheer panels that allow for variable light control. When the slats are open, these shading offer a clear view-through, while still providing privacy when you rotate the vanes shut.
For a more minimalist style office, try Pirouette® Sheer Shades. Pirouette® shades have fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing for a clean, modern look. Both sheer shade options also block up to 99% of damaging UV rays to help protect your office’s interior from discoloration and fading.
Shades for Smaller Office Spaces
If you’re working with limited space, you’ll want a window treatment that won’t make your working area feel even more cramped. Roller shades are great for small spaces as they do not take up any additional room outside the window frame. They also roll up neatly into their headrail and seemingly disappear when fully raised.
Designer Roller Shades from Hunter Douglas are available in over 400 fabrics, with varying opacities, to suit any personal taste and design style. Designer Roller Shades also offer a minimal light gap and smooth operation.
