Home Office Window Treatments
According to FreelancersUnion.org, there are approximately 56.7 million independent workers across the country. Whether you’re a freelance professional working from home, or a remote worker, employed by a company, having a home-office environment that promotes your productivity is important.
When you begin your work day you want to feel good about walking into your office space each morning. A well-lit home office that’s comfortable and inviting encourages motivation and focus.
Natural light—and having the proper home-office window treatment—plays a big role in creating not only a pleasurable office atmosphere, but a productive one.
Think about it. When the sun is shining, you usually feel better, don’t you? The same holds true for the natural light that flows into your home office. It enhances your mood and uplifts your spirits, making it easier to stay centered and get work done.
Reduce Glare from your Computer Monitor
While sunlight is welcome, if you’re sitting at your desk with the office window behind you, the sun’s rays pouring in can result in an overwhelming glare on your computer monitor. Therefore, your eyes will strain to adjust.
If you’ve ever found yourself squinting up close or stretching your neck back to focus, it’s likely due to the glare on your screen. You can significantly minimize glare and reduce eyestrain with the right office window treatment that can help diffuse light, provide excellent light control, and curb UV rays. Simple, classic and elegant, roller shades are precision-engineered for minimal light gaps.
Improved Light Control of Natural Light
Natural light enhances the atmosphere of your home office, which in turn, boosts productivity. The design option of the Top-Down/Bottom-Up window shade lets you customize the position of your shade to fit your ideal level of privacy, light control and comfort.
Minimize Distractions and Provide Privacy
Do you have an office with big windows and great views? If so, it’s easy to get distracted. You might see your neighbors walking their dogs, your kids playing in the yard or traffic driving by.
Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a smart option for offices with large windows or sliding-glass doors. They provide a softly filtered glow to the room while providing precise light control and privacy.
Maintain Comfortable Temperatures
Views outside your office window are not the only things that can distract you from being productive. Whether you get too cold or too hot, that discomfort can not only be annoying, but it can interfere with your concentration and the work you’re trying to accomplish.
Up to 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. The superior design of Duette Architella® Honeycomb Shades traps air in distinct pockets to help keep your home office cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
