Is your home office or study a little drab? If you’re staring at a brown filing cabinet and grubby blinds all day your motivation is likely to look a little drab too - research shows that an appealing office environment can have a positive impact on productivity.
One of the factors that can rejuvenate a home office is the level of natural light. Switch off the lamps and invest in some fabulous window shutters!
At Grosvenor Shutters, we believe that plantation shutters can revitalise a home office or study.
Imagine opening your new plantation shutters wide, letting the morning light into your office and creating a positive start to the day (but we can’t control the Staffordshire weather so you might not always see sunshine!).
If you ever get sun shining on your computer screen, a number of the slats can be closed to provide shade. Blinds can be fiddly and often let all of the light in or none at all – plantation shutters are a much more flexible option.
As the sun moves mid-morning and if we’re lucky enough to get warm weather, all of the window shutter slats can be closed to provide shade and cooling. As your day comes to an end, the shutter slats should all be opened to maximise light as the sun goes down.
Bob Smith based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, has recently had some plantation shutters fitted and said: “I spend a lot of time in my home office. After several years of suffering a dingy environment, I decided to invest in some plantation shutters. They let in so much natural light and I really enjoy how they look to – they’ve certainly modernised the room.”
