If you are thinking about window blinds in Mountain View, CA for your home office, then you are looking at one of the most popular window treatment options among people who work from home. As COVID-19 keeps more of us spending our working hours in our home offices rather than an office that we travel to each day, the window treatments we have installed make a much bigger difference in how our office space feels.
How comfortable you are in your home office will affect a lot of things you may not be aware of. Have you ever had to work in an office that was dark or had no windows, with harsh overhead lighting that left you with a pounding headache at the end of the day?
An office space that is dark or has no windows with overhead lighting that is so intense you literally cannot look up at it will have an effect on your mood, your concentration, and your productivity.
That is why you need to make sure the window treatments in your home office give you a great atmosphere to work in. It can be hard enough to work at home now as your spouse is also working at home and the kids are going to school virtually without being in a home office that is not conducive to productivity.
By the way, these window treatment ideas can help your spouse and kids, too, so it may be time to consider new window treatments in the places where they work and attend school and study.
One great window treatment for your home office is cellular window shades. When you are working on digital devices, one of the most common nuisances is glare from natural light coming in through the windows. With cellular window shades, you can remove the glare, but still get the benefit of light coming in from outside.
Natural light has a positive effect on mood and concentration because it is warm light that makes you feel more comfortable and more calm. Artificial light, especially in a room that is dark or has no windows, tends to be cooler light and it can make you feel like your home office is cold, sterile, and uninviting.
Another great window treatment option for your home office is mini window blinds. Mini window blinds have much smaller slats than normal window blinds, which can be effective for light control when you don’t want to raise the window blinds. Because mini window blinds are available in many kinds of durable materials and colors, they also offer a value packed window treatment option that is affordable and will last for a while.
Faux wood window blinds are a window treatment that works well in just about any room in your home, including your home office. Faux wood window blinds give your office a naturally classic look, and they give you control over light and ventilation that enables you to take advantage of sunny and breezy days, so that you feel less like you are working and more like you are enjoying life.
Window blinds and cellular window shades are just two of many types of window treatments that will work well in your home office (and in your spouse’s office and your kids’ school space) to optimize your productivity while you are working at home.
