How Commercial Blinds Can Boost Productivity

 

Don’t turn a blind eye to the benefits of commercial blinds. They may be something that you think belongs in the background (literally!), but installing a new set of blinds in your workplace can actually have a bigger impact than you realise.

More than just being nice to look at, commercial blinds have practical, functional and even psychological benefits that can boost your staff’s productivity and help keep your business operating at optimal levels.

Whether you prefer vertical blinds, roller blinds, perfect fit blinds, venetian blinds or motorised blinds (if you have no idea about the different types of blinds, don’t worry, we’ll help you make the right choice!), commercial blinds can be a low-cost investment for your business that has a surprisingly significant impact.

Here are three ways in which commercial blinds can boost productivity in your workplace.

Commercial blinds create a bright, vibrant and uplifting environment

Whether you’re in an office or a retail space, installing bright and colourful commercial blinds can help to create a vibrant, dynamic and pleasant environment. In turn, this can have a positive impact on your employees and lift the mood, morale and motivation of your staff.

Colours have been proven to evoke certain emotional responses. For example, yellow elicits happiness, orange is synonymous with energy, while blue is commonly associated with calmness (which can help if your line of work tends to be quite stressful!) It also conveys quality and professionalism to your customers, clients and visitors.

At Solaire Blinds, we have a whole range of colours, shades, patterns, styles and designs of blinds to choose from. You can even choose a colour scheme that matches your company’s branding to create a professional, uniformed look in your workplace.

Commercial blinds reduce sun glare and distraction

Obviously, a major function of blinds is to provide shade and protection from the sun. This is important in any environment, but especially crucial in the workplace. Glare from the sun (particularly during those summer mornings) can be a major distraction for employees who do most of their work in front of a computer screen, inhibiting their ability to do their job properly and efficiently.

Unlike traditional curtains, commercial blinds allow you to easily, quickly and manually counteract this problem with a simple pull of a toggle or twist of a wand.

Commercial blinds help to regulate temperature

Unbeknownst to many people, commercial blinds can also help to regulate temperature. Blinds can distribute heat appropriately by keeping the heat in when it’s cold and keeping the heat out when it’s hot. Not only does this reduce the need for air conditioning and heating — lowering your energy bill and saving your business money — but it helps to maintain optimal temperature and creates a comfortable environment for your employees to work in. Think of it like Goldilocks: commercial blinds help to keep your workplace not too cold or not too hot, but “just right.”
