Yes, how nice it smells, how comfortable the chairs are and the free pens are also very nice however, people usually notice what type of window treatments you have. If your office windows are looking a little drab and outdated, then this blog post is for you! We're going to go over some of the best ways for a quick office window makeover so that your looks like a million bucks without spending a million bucks! 

One way to improve your office's appearance is by choosing ShadeMonster window treatments for your office windows. The right window treatments can enhance light, add color and texture to an otherwise dull space, or even provide privacy.  There are many types of window treatments available, you'll need to figure out which style best suits the needs of everyone who works in your office before deciding on what type will work best for your space. 

How to choose office window treatments

As an integral part of any office, window treatments are necessary. Having the right window shades can help relieve eye strain and provide a more welcoming atmosphere for your employees and clients to work in. Window treatments should be chosen not only for the aesthetic appeal of an office but also because they can have a huge impact on how well your employees are able to see and do their job correctly without any distractions. For instance, if you work in a high-rise office, the sun is likely to beat down on your desk all day long. For this reason, it's important that your window coverings are able to filter out some of these rays and provide relief from the heat they produce.

The 5 main factors to consider:

 

  • Lights: in addition to needing to protect screens and desks from glare, you also need to control the amount of light you want to enter during the day. For this, you can decide whether ShadeMonster solar shades or ShadeMonster blackout shades are right for you. Zebra Shades are also a wonderful option, as you get best of both worlds in one. 

 

  • Convenience: blinds and shades must be practical to open and adjust, as well as easy to dust or wash. Some natural fabrics such as linen, cotton or hemp tend to absorb little dust. In addition to color and material, our shades are able to be motorized, remote controlled, and/or cordless. This adds another layer of convenience to your shades and makes rolling them up and down easy and hassle-free. 

 

  • Colors: The choice of color depends on the colors of the walls and furniture. It is better to avoid dark colors because they tend to take away a lot of light from the workspace. 

 

  • Energy conservation: The right type of blinds can help reduce the overheating of your workspace, thus helping save energy and money. You would be surprised at how much lower your electric bill will be from not having to use the air conditioning as much. In the winter, window coverings not only protect against drafts, but also provide thermal insulation, which is vital for keeping warm during colder months without using more fuel!
