Why blinds work best in an office…

Many homeowners have to decide between curtains or blinds, but for us, the decision depends on the room. Some people choose to have blinds and curtains in their bedroom and living room, whilst they choose blinds for the bathroom and kitchen.

So what about offices? Well for us it’s blinds all day long! Blinds are brilliant at shutting light out when you need a bit of peace and quiet, or when you only want to focus on the light beaming from your computer screen. Curtains tend to make the office feel and look like a bedroom even if there’s not a bed in there! Blinds do the opposite, they give the home office an executive feel, and that’s the way it should be.

We feel that no home study should feel or look like a bedroom, and blinds are the perfect solution to your study, making it a much more practical office space.

The Wonders of Condensation Tape

Condensation tape may not look very attractive on your windows, but it does the job! If you regularly have a build up of condensation but it’s too cold to have your windows open, condensation tape is the best option.

All you do is add a strip of tape to the bottom of your window, so that the tape absorbs any drips. It works quickly and efficiently, but you can leave the strips on for months! The strip will eventually peel away and that’s when you know it’s time for another. Not only does it prevent condensation, but it also prevents mould and mildew damage, and this quick fix is easy to apply. You should, however, make sure your windows are clean before you add the tape, otherwise they won’t last as long as they should. You can buy these from all good supermarkets and homeware stores!
