WFH Life: Best Blinds for the Home Office

Is working from home part of your new weekly routine? We’ve got the perfect blinds to help you work in comfort.

WFH Life: Best Blinds for the Home Office

When you think of #wfh comfort, items like a supportive chair, working coffee machine and an ergonomic desk spring to mind. What you might not think of, however, are your window blinds. Blinds are probably one of the last things you think of (if at all) but they can actually make a huge difference to your day-to-day working life.

Keep reading to discover the styles that can help to minimise window glare, increase productivity and generally improve the overall ambience of your home office.

Why update your home office window treatments


Improve natural light

A well-lit and airy workspace will make it feel less like an office and more like a personal sanctuary. In the average Aussie office, natural light is hard to come by as it can reflect on your screen and cause glare (more on that below). But when it comes to improving your at-home office, we say the more natural light the better, as it provides numerous benefits for the body and soul, including increasing vitamin D and mood.

Some popular light filtering blinds include vertical blinds, roller blinds and double roller blinds, which all offer supreme light control.

Reduce window glare

While sunlight can be the ultimate mood booster, it can also be distracting if you can’t see your screen properly. One of the main reasons why it’s worth updating your home office window treatments is so you can minimise screen glare.

We offer heaps of products in our range that can offer the best of both worlds (sunlight and reduced glare), so you can continue to work efficiently at home throughout the year.

Lower home electrical bills

With the right home office blinds installed, you can save money on your electrical bills. Insulating blinds work to insulate the windows, preventing sun (therefore heat) from entering the room. As a result, the need for air conditioning will reduce, saving you previous money. Plus, as a result of less sunlight entering the room, your furniture will also be protected from fading and discolouration over time.

Best window blinds for your home office

Aluminium Venetians: Modern, stylish and durable, these metal blinds tick all the boxes. With a simple twist of the easy-to-use cord, the slimline slats can be adjusted to direct light away from your screen, or let it enter the room. Perfect for warming up on a sunny winter’s day in the home office.

Double Roller Blinds: These unique roller blinds are one of the most economical window blinds you can buy. Featuring two layers of fabric housed in one roller system, these blinds offer the best of both worlds. We recommend choosing a combination of sunscreen fabric and blockout fabric for your double rollers. The sunscreen fabric shade will reduce glare during the day without disrupting your view whenever you feel like gazing out the window.

Vertical Blinds: If you’re working near large windows or sliding doors, vertical blinds are the perfect choice. These blinds are great for preventing on-screen glare and controlling privacy. Plus, they can also be used to divide a room, if you want to create some separation between your living and working area.
