Blinds for Your Business

Selecting blinds for your commercial premises can be a tricky business. On the one hand, you want to pick a style of blind that’s appropriate for the industry in which you operate, on the other, you want to reveal as much personality as possible through the way that you fit out your office.

To help you navigate this process, this month, Boyd’s Blinds will be offering some advice on what blinds are best suited to different commercial environments. So, whether you’re looking for high functionality or something eye-catching, we can help you out with some ideas.

What is your primary concern?

Before you begin your search, it’s best to establish what your primary concern is when it comes to dressing the windows of your business premises. Is it privacy? Energy efficiency? Aesthetics? Or perhaps you just want to aim for something in keeping with your office’s atmosphere?

Which of these, if any, is most important to you and your business will depend on a number of factors such as industry and sector, so make sure that you think long and hard about these before you start browsing different styles. It will greatly increase your chances of getting the right blinds for your business!

Here’s a few styles that we think would work.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds, with their simple but effective design, can be a very effective office window treatment, especially on smaller windows. Unfussy but elegant, roller blinds feature a single sheet of material which extends over the window, meaning their look can easily be adapted to suit a wide variety of offices.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds have remained popular for decades and it’s not difficult to see why – their combination of timeless design and excellent light control makes them an obvious choice for homes and offices alike. And, if you’re concerned about whether they will suit your working environment, luckily, their simple but appealing design means they can be jazzed up or pared back accordingly.

As far as positioning is concerned, perhaps the potential of Venetian blinds would be maximised on street-facing windows, since it allows for their light control mechanism to be used more often.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds, with their sleek, vertical, pivoting slats, are arguably the best style for privacy, so they should certainly be considered for floor-level street-facing windows and shop fronts. On top of this, vertical blinds are extremely simple to use and look their best in simple block colours, lending themselves to more formal environments.
