We love getting an insight into all the spaces our customers use our blinds in – some more unusual than others. Martin’s home office is definitely a little bit different, and here he shares how Vertical blinds from Web-Blinds transformed the space.
With a baby on the way, Martin, a self-employed design consultant, knew it was time to move his business from the spare room in his home in Leeds. He decided on a system build at the bottom of his garden.
It was a smart choice. It took Martin’s work out of the house and freed up much-needed space for a nursery.
“I wanted to create a professional and smart feel,” explains Martin. “It might be a home office, but I wanted it to feel like a place of work all the same.”
The new office features lots of lovely glass windows and doors, allowing the light to flood in. But all this glass creates problems too, as Martin discovered.
“Without blinds, the office felt unfinished, and the daylight was causing real problems as the sun moved around during the day.
“We’d used Web-Blinds products in the house itself, so came back to the site when it came to the office space.
Martin decided on Vertical blinds. They’re a popular choice as both window and door blinds, and the sleek and simply design complemented the look of the office.
“I was very surprised at how easy the ordering process was,” says Martin. “The blinds arrived so quickly, and Web-Blinds made all the necessary allowances for fittings after I provided the basic measurements.
“The blinds look professional and the design allow me to control the direct sunlight at my workstation without blocking out natural light. Now it’s a comfortable space all day long.”
And how did Martin find fitting the blinds?
“I watched the YouTube video and got on with it. So easy, I actually hung the last one whilst on a conference call!”
Well if that isn’t efficiency, we don’t know what is!
