Commercial Office Window Treatments

In general, commercial design is not as detailed or attractive as residential design, and usually, the window treatments are more functional than decorative. However, you might be able to get both. Start by thinking about the three basic questions below, and then speak to a trained consultant at Shutter Guy here in Charleston. We can help you find the right treatment for your office.

  1. Do you want your window treatments to stand out or blend in?
  2. Should they be horizontal or vertical?
  3. Should they diffuse or deflect light and sound?

Standing Out vs. Blending In

When window treatments stand out, they become the focal point of the room. When a window treatment blends in, it will simply do what it’s needed to do—control light and privacy. You can never go wrong with having a window treatment blend in. Consider going with Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings.

Horizontal or Vertical Window Treatments

With so many options available in both horizontal and vertical window treatments, your commercial design options are unlimited. If you have windows that are taller than they are wide, go horizontal window coverings will work best. If your windows are wider than they are tall, vertical window coverings will be most suitable. Skyline™ Gliding Panels actually work great in both applications.

Diffuse or Deflect

Diffusing or deflecting light can be handled in a variety of ways, including adding 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.
