Although residential design is often thought to be more detailed or attractive than commercial design, office windows can still be treated as both functional and decorative, depending on your needs. Just think about some key points to narrow down your selection. For example, decide whether you want the treatments to be noticed or to blend in to the space. Determine whether they should be horizontal or vertical. Finally, decide whether you want the treatments to diffuse or deflect light or sound. Once you’ve made those decisions, talk to a trained professional at Bretz Interiors here in Lakewood. We’ll be happy to help!
Functional, Decorative, or Both When Selecting Commercial Shades
When window treatments stand out, they become the focal point of a room. When they blend in, they are simply functional, not decorative—it will control light and give privacy if needed. Silhouette® Window Shadings would be a good choice. 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. Skyline™ Gliding Panels are great in either orientation. Diffusing or deflecting light can be handled in a variety of ways with more light-control options, such as room-darkening backings. All window treatments diffuse sound to a certain degree, but fabric products seem to work the best. Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades are an excellent choice for blocking sound and are the most energy-efficient shade on the market today.
Operating Systems for Blinds
There are a variety of operating systems from Hunter Douglas Window Fashions that are available for lifting or rotating your shades and blinds. If you’re interested in motorized options, look at PowerView™, which is a wireless operating system that gives you the power to control and schedule your Hunter Douglas window treatments from your smartphone, tablet, or a remote control. Other choices include LiteRise®, which is a cordless system that you push up with your hand to raise and pull down to lower. UltraGlide® is a system that features a unique, retractable cord—letting you raise and lower your window treatments without unsightly, dangling external cords. EasyRise™ is a continuous loop that lowers your window fashion. Pulling on the rear of the loop raises it.
