Curtains, Blinds Or Bars – What To Have On Your Office Windows

Whether you are choosing the window dressings for your office, or even your home, there are plenty of different options to choose between, and lots of different factors you should take into consideration. If you are having your office redesigned don’t just pay close attention to the office furniture that you pick, of course the desks and chairs play an important part in your office setting but what you have in your windows can also be of great importance as well.

What Should You Consider When Looking At Window Treatments?

It is always a good idea to make sure that you are buying a high-quality item, as buying something that is cheap could prove to be a false economy. It is always worth paying that little more to get a product that will look great and last for longer.

Consider how much light your chosen window covering will let in, as natural lighting is much better for your staff than artificial light, to say nothing of costing you less on your electricity bill. Lighter colours and materials will allow more light into your office space, even if you should need to close them should the sun be glaring in.

You will probably want to make sure that whatever you pick fits in with the style and colours of your office, after all this is a place where you will be spending a lot of your time, you want it to be a comfortable and pleasant workspace for your employees. If you prefer a minimalistic look to your office space, then it is important to pay attention to the colours that you consider.


Curtains are not that common in offices, they can be stunning, come in a vast range or colours, patterns and even styles but they are fiddly. Curtains can also really attract the dust, which could lead to them needing to be cleaned more often, and unfortunately this will usually mean an expensive trip to the dry cleaners. Perhaps these are a window covering best saved for the home.


Blinds are a great choice for office windows, they come in a range of colours, and are very versatile. They can be fully opened, partially opened or fully closed depending on how much light you want to let in, and more importantly they are not that difficult to clean.


If your office space has ground floor windows, especially if you are located next to the road then you will probably want to have bars installed on the windows. They may not be a very pretty option but they are certainly a security conscious choice that can help to deter break ins at night, they may not prevent them from happening but it will certainly make it much harder for anyone to enter your premises illegally. They may also make any staff who work on the ground floor feel a little more secure in the workplace, especially in the winter when it gets dark outside much quicker. Of course, bars on their own will not act a shield against the suns glare so you may need to consider putting up blinds or curtains as well.
