If you need some insulation for your office windows, we suggest honeycomb shades.  By investing in honeycomb shades, you will notice your energy  bills may be lower and you will save money plus offer a clean and stylish design.  When looking for honeycomb cellular shades, consider the cell shapes because the more cells a honeycomb shade has the better insulation it will provide. A double cell shade will provide better insulation than a single cell shade and also come in different grades of light filtration. Blackout cellular shades and room darkening cell shades are excellent at blocking unwanted light while light filtering cell shades or  allow light to enter the room during the day but still provide that extra shade. Honeycomb shades come in lots of great color choices and pleat sizes vary for Honeycomb cellular shades from small pleats to medium pleat sizes to large pleat sizes just right for your office!


Faux Wood Blinds

If you like the look of real wood, but you want more affordability and more durability, faux wood blinds are the perfect option. They’ll give your office space a traditional, earthy style. Faux wood blinds are quickly becoming some of the most popular window treatments on the market. While there are many inexpensive options of real wood blinds, faux wood blinds are even more affordable and economical because they are manufactured using composite materials, including vinyl and PVC. These blinds can hold up to extended periods of wear and tear without bending, breaking, cracking, or warping. In addition, they’re also much more resistant to damage from cleaning solutions and liquids.

If you live in a very bright and sunny area, you might want to consider a window treatment that comes with a light blocking liner. This setup provides you with maximum light control – from translucent to light dimming to light blocking.


Reduce Glare and Filter Light

For a commercial office environment, it’s best to choose a window treatment that allows you to incrementally filter light. This will let you enjoy natural sunlight when you are reading or meeting with clients and reduce glare on your screen when you are working at your computer. Soft Shades have a unique look that is created by combining the soft folds of a classic Roman shade with the construction of a cellular shade.


Roller Shades

Just like mini blinds, roller shades are budget-friendly. The simple design is modern and sleek, making it great for every window of your business office. The simplicity of roller shades makes them extremely versatile and can be mounted inside the window frame or on the outside. They are simple to operate, with the choice of either a continuous loop chain control or cordless control. For a complete light blocking solution, mount your shades under blackout drapes and add a cornice at the top of the window, preventing any light seepage.


Block Harmful UV Rays
