5 Reasons to Use Shutters in your Home Office

With a growing number of us now working from home either part of the week or full-time, the need for a home office or study is on the increase. Now you might think that designing and decorating a home office is straight forward but actually there are quite a few things that you need to take into account to ensure a fully functioning, practical room. One of those aspects is the window dressing, and in this post I’m looking at 5 reasons to use window shutters in your home office.

They’re stylish, easy on the eye and work with all kinds of home decor styles. So I wanted to dig into the reasons why they work so well for offices. Having a home office myself I can vouch for these ideas.

Flexible Light

A good work area needs plenty of light, but you don’t want any glare on your computer screen. Pulling down traditional blinds can block stop the glare but will block out natural light. What I love about shutters is that you can control the amount of light in and out, maintaining a good level of natural light for when you need it.

Distractions

Light distracts me too. Particularly if it’s shining on my laptop. My desk is also situated near the window so I find myself staring out of it when I should be working! Cafe shutters are a great option for reducing distractions. Shut them up close the world out. Cocoon your office and help you concentrate on the work in hand.

Style Options

I love Cafe style shutters where only half of the window is covered, allowing daylight to stream through and keep the room light and bright, but shutters on the bottom half of the window help keep the sun from your eyes. It’s the options around shutters that I really love; you can choose and design the perfect shutter for your office, in a colour and finish of your choice.

Design Choice

Now I’ve mentioned that different colours are available, but let’s just expand on that a moment and consider what that really means. You can take your shutters and make a real statement in the room. It’s true we tend to add the window dressing as the last item in our decorating, but consider it at the beginning of the scheme, and use the shutters to create a focal point in the room. You really can create something quite stunning.

Security

Put shutters at your window and quickly close them off as you leave the room, and your workspace is no longer on display. Easy.

So there are lots of places you can go to buy your shutters. Generally they take about 3 months to be made and shipped to you, but if you don’t mind the wait then try somewhere like http://www.cheapshutters.co.uk to find out more.

    I really love the orange ones (and the chair to be honest). My home office is facing a convent if you can believe it, and there’s always lots of people coming and going. Never thought about shutters, but they seem like a fab idea!

    I’ve always had shutters around my desk in my home office and I usually keep them closed. I would never dream of having it any other way. I have a ceiling light that illuminates the keyboard without saturating the computer screen or creating glare and i also have a desk light aimed at the area BEHIND the screen (or rather screens) to create a local pool of light. It works perfectly ensuring that I’m not saturated with daylight nor starved of necessary light at night.

    I truly adore the orange ones (and the seat to be straightforward). My home office is confronting a cloister in the event that you can trust it, and there’s dependably bunches of individuals traveling every which way. Never contemplated screens, however they appear like a fab thought
