Commercial design can sometimes seem stark and unattractive. In commercial businesses, the window treatments are usually more functional than decorative. However, there’s a chance they could be both. If you’re in the market for new treatments for your office building, talk to a trained specialist at Window Treats in Brooklyn. We can help you find the right product for your office.
Aesthetics for Commercial Blinds and Shades
Do you want the window treatments to be noticed or to blend in to the wall? When your window treatments stand out, they will become the focal point. When they blend in to the wall, they will simply serve a function—controlling light and privacy. You can never go wrong with receding a window treatment. Check out Silhouette® Window Shadings.
Orientation — Vertical or Horizontal
Should your treatments be vertical or horizontal? Horizontal window coverings work best on windows that are taller than they are wide, while vertical window coverings are most suitable for windows that are wider than they are tall. There are so many options available in both vertical and horizontal window treatments that your commercial design options are unlimited. Skyline™ Gliding Panels actually work great in both applications.
Light and Sound Diffusion
Diffusing or deflecting light and sound can be very important in a professional environment. Light-control options, such as room-darkening backings can ensure that the space never gets too bright. All window treatments diffuse sound to a certain degree, but fabric products seem to work the best. Harder surfaces, such as plantation shutters, wooden blinds and verticals, and aluminum blinds, are not as effective. Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades are an excellent choice for blocking sound and are the most energy-efficient shade on the market today.
It’s important to consider how the treatments should be operated—will employees be able to control their own, or should an office manager have a remote-control option? Hunter Douglas offers a variety of operating systems that can suit your needs. Here are just a few of the choices:
- PowerView™ – This wireless operating system gives you the power to control and schedule your Hunter Douglas window treatments from a smartphone, tablet, or remote control
- UltraGlide® – This system features a retractable cord that lets you raise and lower the window treatments without unsightly, dangling external cords
- LiteRise® – With this cordless system, you push up with your hand to raise and pull down to lower. Your blinds and shades stay in place until you move them again
