For 2017, the consensus is that it is time for change, and this trend is also noticeable in the office environment. It is time to spruce up the interior of your corporate buildings with modern office blinds and other window treatments. With the move towards energy-efficient buildings, it comes as no surprise that office blinds are among the top choices for window coverings.
Elegant, neat, professional, private, and functional, today’s designer office blinds are available in a wide range of colours to suit the interior of your office. In addition, better noise control is possible, while you can optimise natural light levels to minimise energy usage.
Interior designers love the versatility of designer blinds, shutters and awnings which afford them more elements to work with to create unique, but highly functional office spaces. If you support 2017’s motto of change and you want a new look for your work environment, start with changing the window treatments to align them with your corporate identity and to support a more energy-efficient policy. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Trend no. 1: Professional Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are just as popular today as they were when first introduced to the corporate world years ago. Technology, however, has advanced and today you can even opt for motorised blinds. If you prefer to manually open and close the window treatments, the vertical design remains very fashionable. These designer window treatments fit every window perfectly, giving the neat finish that is so important in the business environment. Available in a range of materials, the blinds provide the superior privacy and light control required for places such as executive offices.
Trend no. 2: Maximum Privacy with Stylish Shutters
As presentations are almost an everyday occurrence in the boardroom, light control is crucial. This is where modern shutters available from us are very useful. When closed, the shutters block any outside light that can drown out the images from overhead projectors. The shutters also have an element of style and opulence and are thus well-suited to luxury office spaces such as executive boardrooms, where sophistication and functionality must be in perfect balance.
Trend no. 3: Enhance the View with Roller Blinds
Roller shutters are luxurious, but also very practical in the office environment. With the easy-to-use mechanism to roll these one-piece fabric blinds up or down, they can be retracted to obtain an unobstructed view of the outside world. They are also highly effective in blocking out light and are considered by interior designers as one of the most versatile window coverings for creating modern and elegant workspaces.
Trend no. 4: Improve Ventilation with Awnings
In 2017, awnings have become increasingly popular as office window treatments due to their customisation possibilities. Designer awnings can be made for the entire side of the office, or for a single window. The awnings improve the thermal comfort range in the built environment by considerably reducing heat during the warmer summer months, while retraction allows for more sun into the building during the winter months.
With these four stylish designer window treatments offered by our Designer Blinds division, you have ample reason to revamp your office space to align it with 2017 office design trends.
