Window blinds may hang in the background but don't forget to add blinds to the list when outfitting your office space with furniture and equipment. To keep your office space private and lighted correctly, window blinds and shades are a must.
You can get much more than traditional mini blinds for your office space. Your options include custom blinds, bamboo window blinds, enclosed window blinds and the old standard, the Venetian blind.
- Estimate your needs as far as window blinds. Count the number of windows that require shades in your office space and then measure the size of each window.
- Provide a window blinds and shades supplier with your figures. Your supplier can then give you a quote on how much the blinds plus installation will cost you.
- Buy window blinds and set up an installation date. If you have ordered custom blinds, your supplier will have to make the cuts prior to installation. Ready-to-hang mini blind and Venetian blind styles will take less time to come in.
Pick the material for your office window blindsWindow blinds come in a wide range of materials. Most offices decide to install either vinyl window blinds or wooden window blinds. If you are looking to save money on your window treatment purchase, then order vinyl window blinds. Wooden blinds will likely cost you double the price.
Set up an appointment to order and install window blindsNot every business owner has the time to install their office's window blinds themselves. If this is the case, you should sit down with a window treatment specialist to order your custom blinds and have the company install them.
Order window blinds and shades with lifetime warranty coverageGetting window blinds for your entire office will likely cost you a lot of money, depending on the quantity and type that you decide on. Protect your purchase with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
- You'll want to test out the amount of light that gets through the window blinds you are interested in buying. You want blinds that significantly reduce the glare on computer monitors by blocking out the light.
