has been created and stimulated in the UK market for more
‘design’ in furnishings and décor generally.
Some of the ‘causes’ for this could be the activities
of the mass media and popular TV program makers and channels,
and by the greater availability of affordable designer style
furnishings and décor in popular consumer markets.
Marketers would however argue that it’s more of a case
of simply identifying and meeting consumers needs’ for
these kinds of products around the home. The modern trend
toward home working, stimulated and enabled by the rise of
widespread use of the Internet by business and consumers,
has meant a harmonious amalgamation of the practical and the
genuinely comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
can now describe a very wide range of more general ‘furniture’
- furniture which wouldn’t look out of place in your
living room, and ergonomic furniture. Office window coverings
have in more recent years ceased to be banks of rather battered
white horizontal blinds, and have featured very up to date
in a variety of colours and textures.
blinds make an ideal workplace window covering. Their
ease of fitting and use are real bonuses. Vertical
blinds tend to be very durable anyway, particularly
the strong PVC backed variety of blinds slats, but all vertical
blinds are very easy to maintain. For example, each
slat can be individually removed and cleaned or replaced.
This can be a very important feature, particularly in a
very busy work environment where there are likely to be
higher levels of wear and tear and frequency of contact
than under normal circumstances.
blinds can be very effective at letting large amounts
of natural daylight in whilst retaining the necessary privacy.
They can also protect the workplace from unwanted light
and heat pollution in the workplace e.g. from the glare
of the sun.
blinds don’t have to be used on just the main
windows. Many modern offices make use of glass partitions.
These partitions can be used to create whole glass office
areas within the building. As with most offices in the workplace,
there are times and situations where privacy is necessary.
therefore provide the perfect solution.
