You should consider all of your options with choosing commercial window blinds. You have several types of blinds to choose from and each has mostly the same qualities although some have the qualities of ease of control built in for your convenience.
When you choose custom-made window blinds, you can control the exact amount of light that you want to allow in when the blinds are closed. Too much light in any office space can be blinding and cause eyestrain on computer screens and presentation boards, making it more difficult to get your point across to employees. You can have light filtering blinds to let some light inside the windows that is comfortable in your space. You may also decide on blackout window treatments for the windows that get the maximum amount of sunlight through them because of the side of the building they are on.
Operable Blind Slats
Many commercial spaces like the fact that you can tilt the slats in blinds of all types to adjust the lighting. You can tilt them down to light the flooring or up to send the sunlight onto the ceiling. This gives you precise control over your lighting features unlike shades that are down or partially down to block light.
Increasing Your Insulation
From the burning summer heat to the chilling cold winter winds, you will be amazed at how blinds work to increase your insulation all year round. When your blinds of any type are fully closed in winter, they will trap the cold air next to the window so you will have less need for heating your office space. In the summer, they perform the same energy efficiency by trapping the hot air next to the window so you can use less air conditioning. This translates into great savings every month on your heating and cooling costs.
Office Window Blinds Make a Visual Impact
Your office window blinds also make a great visual impact and portray a certain level of sophistication throughout your entire building. Blinds of all types take little care to clean and appear tidy at all times.
Expert Architectural Matching
Newer commercial spaces love to incorporate large windows and windows of specialty shapes in the architectural design. These types of windows may also need blinds. Custom-made window blinds can fit any shape of windows your have, including arches, tall windows, wide windows and banks of windows including bowed corner windows.
Horizontal Mini Blinds
Horizontal mini blinds are the first blinds that hit the market and they are still a very popular choice today. You can choose a 1 inch or 2 inch slat in aluminum or vinyl. You can also choose from a variety of colors to match your decor, such as white, off white, alabaster, brushed aluminum and char brown.
Fauxwood office blinds are a work of art with beautiful wood grain patterns, just as hardwood blinds, but they are much more sturdy, lighter in weight and can withstand areas with high humidity without warping or peeling. An additional incentive for fauxwood blinds is that they are less expensive than hardwood blinds and you can either have them stained to match your trim in your office, or you can have them painted any color that you wish. This makes them a great choice for commercial applications.
Vertical blinds came on the market as specialty blinds for very large windows. The original mini blinds can be made to fit large windows, but the weight of them when drawn can be detrimental to the rollers that are used to open the blinds. Quality custom vertical blinds have unbreakable stems and carriers that self align for a truly long lasting product. You can choose from a huge variety of decorator colors as well as neutral colors for your windows in 3 1/2 inch wide slats. Another great feature of this type of blinds is that you can open them to one side, to both sides or have the stack when open in the center of the window.
The Addition of Motorization
Motorized blinds are a great feature for any office space or commercial space. You can program them to open and close at specific times of the day instead of needing to walk to each window individually to close the blinds before locking up at night. Most all businesses close their blinds at night so that passersby can’t see what types of merchandise or computers or other expensive equipment is inside. You will find that motorized window blinds are very versatile in their operation. You can press a wall remote control, a handheld remote control or control them through any smart device. Some of them will even sync with your security system that is already in place for the simplest control method of all.
When you choose custom-made office window blinds, you can rest assured that you are in full control of exactly what products your want, how they operate, their cost and window blind installation as well for you so you know they will have a perfect fit every time. Custom window coverings are a turnkey process in which you have the ultimate in control over your windows.
