Member Insights by Continental Blinds

When you own your own business, every decision is made carefully and meticulously. Doing so shows that you take the time to pay attention to small details and that you are invested in the effects they may have on your business. Even simple additions such as new window blinds or treatments have the ability to set the tone and mood for your work space. Picking the perfect blinds for your office will shape the perfect environment for your employees, your guests, and your clients.

Controlling Lighting

When the time comes to install new window blinds, think about the values that matter most to your working style and emphasize the right characteristics. The success of your business has much to do with the satisfaction of your employees. Create a bright and energizing work space for your employees by increasing the amount of natural light allowed to enter. Businesses with a lot of natural light also creates a warm and inviting space for your guests, customers, and clients. Venetian and vertical blinds allow you to control lighting during various times of the day to reduce the glare off of computer and presentation screens.

Various Functionality

Selecting the right type of window treatment for your business space is no easy task. A different mood may be created by each new blind type and each blind type may serve a different purpose for each room. For businesses with more than one room, one blind type or style may not be suitable for all. Traditional aluminium blinds offer basic functionality and are a classic, professional option while treatments with brighter colors are cheerful and energizing. Venetian blinds allow you to adjust the amount of lighting while roller blinds are easy to operate and may be best suited for rooms that call for darker spaces, like presentation rooms.

Increasing Insulation

Up to 25% of your business’ heating or cooling costs can be attributed to loss of energy through its windows. If you think more cost-efficiently, window treatments that increase insulation may be more attractive to you. Reduce heating and cooling costs by installing honeycomb blinds or cell shades.

Make a Visual Impact

As a business owner, you either want to attract experts in your field to work for you or you want customers to choose your business over the competition. Make your business stand out by making a visual impact. Various blind types and window treatment patterns and textures will help you do just that. Even if your space calls for a more professional appearance, make sure your window treatments are reflecting the right tone for your place of business. Work with a window fashion consultant to create custom treatments perfect for only your workplace.
