Roller shades are sleek and streamlined with an easy-to-use operational design that works on large and small window sizes alike. The prominent fabric front makes design pop, and there’s a plethora of colors, patterns, textures, and opacities to choose from when purchasing roller shades from an industry leader like Hunter Douglas and their line of Designer Roller Shades. It’s for these reasons that roller shades are a popular choice for window treatments in residential homes, and it is also these reasons that make commercial roller shades an equally attractive option for professional workplaces. In workspaces, the design and style of roller shades have additional benefits when it comes to creating a safe, stylish, and productive working environment.
Direct sunlight can be blinding, which poses a great risk to employees. Protect their eyes and create a productive environment with commercial roller shades. Roller shades diffuse light to decrease its blinding effects making indoor spaces more ocularly comfortable for their inhabitants. Additionally, direct light can make using monitors difficult by causing glare or making screens unreadable. But, with commercial roller shades, you can block solar glare before it becomes an issue ensuring your monitors are easy to read and their use does not cause detrimental eyestrain for employees. Furthermore, some semi-opaque textiles available with Hunter Douglas roller shades allow for natural light to enter while still blocking glare to create a workspace that utilizes natural light instead of relying solely on artificial light, which is better for your eyes and requires less costly energy consumption.
While direct sunlight can bring unwanted elements into a workspace, like glare, it also brings in amazingly efficient and stylish elements like natural illumination and visually alluring exposure. For commercial spaces with window fronts (like restaurants, retail spaces, and office buildings) balancing the need to block direct light to create a comfortable indoor atmosphere with the desire to promote your business with the use of visually alluring displays that are viewable by the outside world is crucial. Roller shades for commercial properties can address both sides of this issue because they come in textiles that have a range of opacities, which allows business owners to tailor their shades to suit the individual needs of their company. They can balance the amount of natural light admitted against the display needs for their glass front and devise a custom set of roller shades that meets their exact needs.
Thanks to their straightforward design, roller shades (including commercial roller shades) can be customized to fit windows of all different sizes. This can be especially useful in commercial spaces where window sizes don’t always match standard residential window sizes. Additionally, many commercial spaces feature large windows (either extra tall or extra wide), making roller shades ideal because they are an easy-to-use window treatment that can perform optimally even in larger proportions when other styles of shades become too heavy to maneuver smoothly or easily. Commercial roller shades also make useful tools on interior walls of an office where privacy may need to be fluid. For example, roller shades in a conference room can easily open when the space is not in use, or a collaborative project is underway; or they can be closed completely when more private meetings or work is happening.
