Commercial window covering ideas

Windows are often one of the first things that potential customers will see when they look at a retail business, so it’s important to make sure they are well-decorated, tidy, and clean. There are a few different factors to consider when choosing window coverings for a retail business, such as the type of business, the location, and the level of privacy desired.

Some of the most popular types of retail window coverings are blinds, curtains, and shutters. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages that should be considered before making a decision.

Protecting merchandise

If you sell products that are sensitive to sunlight, such as food or electronics, it is important to choose a window covering that will protect your merchandise and supplies from damage. Heavy-duty curtains or blackout roller blinds are a good option when it comes to retail window coverings for businesses owners that need to block out a significant amount of light.

Alternatively, you may want to consider using a window covering that will help reflect and diffuse the light. For this option, consider a light-filtering roller blind, which allows you more control of light and minimise glare. This will still allow a pleasant stream of light in without damaging your merchandise or having you depend wholly on artificial lights. Buy roller blinds online or in store.

Light control

If you have a large store with many windows, it is important to choose retail window coverings that will allow you to control the amount of light and heat that enters the space. Vertical blinds are a good option for businesses that need to be able to adjust the level of light throughout the day. Our range of light-filtering vertical blinds come in a range of colours and are stunning against large windows. While also offering light control, vertical blinds are a great option because of the soft light it lets in. Buy vertical blinds in store or online at Blindo.

Temperature Control

Having control over the amount of light that enters is key to the interior style of your commercial business, as well as its ability to protect merchandise. However, you may also consider window coverings that help save on energy bills, such as basswood shutters. Not only do they provide an elegant and stylish look, but they also offer excellent insulation against heat and cold. This can help you save on energy bills, as well as protect your merchandise from damage. Basswood shutters are also very easy to maintain, making them a great choice for busy businesses.

Roller blinds are a great option for businesses that want to maintain a high level of privacy, as they can be completely closed. They are also fairly easy to operate and maintain, making them the ideal low-maintenance option for busy businesses. However, blinds can sometimes give a commercial space a “sterile” look, so it’s important to consider the overall aesthetic of the business before choosing this option.

Window curtains can add a softer look to a retail space while also maintaining a level of privacy for the business. Blindo customises curtains to suit your windows. They can also be hung at different heights to create different levels of privacy, making them a versatile option. However, curtains can be more difficult to keep clean than blinds, so they may require more maintenance.
