Window treatments have always been important for homes and businesses especially for interior design purposes. However, it is also wise to choose your window treatments for wisely because when used right, business window treatments can contribute a lot to your business success. Here are some reasons why:
1.Creates a Good First Impression
We all know that first impressions last, and this also applies to any business wherein first time visitors will always have something to say the moment they walk inside an office. A good business window treatment adds to the overall ambiance of a reception area. It is always a wise choice to choose something that will create balance and at the same time enhance beauty and cleanliness.
- Reduces Screen Glare
Employees become more productive when they work in a comfortable area where their eyes are neither strained nor stressed. Light controlling blinds whether vertical or horizontal, and plantation shutters are some good examples to prevent reflection, glare and control shadows. These window treatments can be easily controlled to still allow some light to pass through which is better, compared to heavy drapes and curtains as they offer less range of fine-tuned adjustments.
- Saves on Energy Cost
Business window treatments serves as another layer between your workspace and the great outdoors. If your office is located on the sunniest side of the building, more energy from cool air conditioning is needed in order to keep the entire office space comfortable and also avoid overheating some office equipment. When it gets too hot outside, it can penetrate inside your office space; however, when good window treatments are installed, these can prevent more external heat from penetrating. Thus, lesser energy consumption from the air conditioning system and lesser danger of any office equipment overheating.
- Allows Privacy
Window treatments provide privacy from outsiders, and it is always important to consider that private meetings and conferences need not be viewed by all employees. Thus, the purpose of adding curtains or roller blinds to conference or meeting rooms become imperative. Likewise, any arguments that might arise will not affect or hamper productivity because window treatments will give ample privacy during sensitive meetings.
- Contributes to Employees’ Performance and Productivity
Tailoring your window treatment colours to help balance your entire office ambiance contributes to employee performance. According to studies, employees tend to think more creatively when surrounded by blue or green colours, and tend to pay better attention to detail when surrounded by red tones. Additionally, when there’s plenty of natural sunlight, employees tend to focus more on computer tasks. When choosing business window treatments, opt for a style that allows plenty of sunlight when opened.
