If you are reading this, then chances are you appreciate the intricacies and small details of interior design. For this reason, you may be dismayed to read that many people do not take in or even pay attention to what type of window furnishing is hanging in a room. Shame on them, we say, yet we also feel sorry for them; this means that they are missing out on spotting the patterns and common similarities and differences that so many homes, workplaces, hospitals, palaces… practically anywhere with windows, basically.

Naturally at Vertical Blinds Direct, we believe vertical blinds are the bee’s knees as far as window furnishings go, and a trend that is impossible for us to ignore, is their frequent use in offices and the workplace.

Vertical blinds offer a very stylish yet understated aesthetic to a room, depending on the colour you go for. Whites, greys and navy blues tend to be popular choices for the workplace, providing a neutral, professional atmosphere. Their sleek appearance ties in very well with the corporate climate, making them an obvious choice for millions of workplaces.

However, there is an increasing number of professional environments who are eager to remove the stagnant atmosphere of the stellar steel and chrome office. It has been proven time and time again that a working environment with a cheery atmosphere does wonders for increasing productivity. Because of this, we are seeing more and more companies installing bold and varied colours to match their decor, and also uplift the workforce. Thankfully, we have a massive selection of colours and patterns to inspire the troops on our website.

In today’s modern working world of computers and tablets, it’s important that in the blazing sun one can actually see the screen. Trust us, we know what it feels like straining to see what it is you have just written, and vertical blinds are a life-saver in ensuring enough light and air will circulate around the office, but also help to block out the glare from the sun as you’re trying to write your masterpiece blog post for the day!

Vertical blinds are also ideal for controlling privacy. Aside from hiding outside distractions, they are a simple and easy way to prevent passers by from peering into the office – especially offices on the ground floor – not to mention local business rivals snooping in on what you are up to.

Aside from their appearance, there are plenty of practical reasons as to why verticals are such popular choices for office blinds: they are very easy and simple to clean, thanks to the louvers hanging vertically. They are extremely hard-wearing, and will stand up to a great number of strains. Fortunately, we at Vertical Blind Direct have a massive range of blinds, whether you are looking for something as a long-term investment, or a cost effective furnishing. The light and air can be precisely regulated, thanks to the blinds’ ability to be adjusted according to how much light you want to let into a room.
