5 Best Blinds for a Home Office
In this post-pandemic world, more people than ever before are working remotely and creating a designated home office. When working from home, any small distraction can derail your day, so it’s important to have an environment that fosters productivity.

Day and night blinds
Sometimes referred to as twist vision blinds, this innovative style of window covering comprises two alternating fabric layers that slide over each other to provide precise control over the level of light filtration. You can adjust these blinds to accommodate the sun’s position throughout the day, helping you to enjoy natural light whilst preventing glare from interrupting your work.
We’ve all been there — you’re on a roll and you don’t want to get up from your chair and ruin your momentum. Well, with automated blinds, you don’t have to! You can open and close your blinds with the simple touch of a button, a feature which is especially convenient if your windows are hard to reach or you want to modify the level of light without interrupting your flow. Many motorised blinds are now also compatible with smart devices, which adds a whole new level of convenience and modernity to your home office setup.
Whilst many workplaces may be equipped with high-tech air con and heating units to maintain a comfortable temperature for employees all year round, your home office likely does not have the same privilege. Many people no doubt remember the sweltering 40°C heat that the UK experienced last summer, and this shows no sign of being a one-off, with more record temperatures expected. A stuffy home office can be uncomfortable and severely reduce productivity, and this is where Duette blinds can help. This unique honeycomb design traps air into insulating pockets; this forms a barrier against excessive heat gain to help keep your home office cool. Likewise, in the winter, these blinds provide an extra layer of insulation and help to prevent heat loss, ensuring your space is cosy and warm. Duette blinds are sure to enhance the energy efficiency of your home throughout peak seasons, potentially contributing towards a lower energy bill.
Crafted from a combination of sheer and opaque fabric, allusion blinds filter natural light levels without sacrificing your view. Moreover, this voile style of blinds also partially obscures the view from outside to offer a high level of privacy — perfect for if you have nosy neighbours or need to conduct a meeting that requires discretion.
Venetian blinds are one of the most sought-after styles, and it’s little wonder. They feature easily adjustable slats that can be precisely angled to control light and privacy. With a huge range of shades and colours available, they can complement your interior and add a touch of elegance to any home office.
