Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the traditional office environment for many has been replaced by the telecommuting trend, allowing people to work from the comfort of their own homes. With the rise of remote work, creating a designated workspace in the home has become a necessity. That’s where the concept of the ‘hideaway office’ comes in. A hideaway office is a space that is designated for work but can easily be hidden away and out of sight when not in use. If you’re looking to create a cosy and productive hideaway office, incorporating shutters into the design can be a game-changer.

Lighting is a must when designing a home office

One of the most important design elements to consider when creating a hideaway office is lighting. Having too much or too little light can make it difficult to focus and can cause unnecessary eye strain. Shutters provide an easy solution to controlling the amount of light entering the space. With shutters, you can easily control the amount of natural light coming in by adjusting the louvres, giving you the flexibility to create your ideal lighting situation. With the option for traditional blinds or motorised blinds, you are getting the ultimate level of control you need to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your work day.

Control the temperature of the room with bespoke shutters & blinds

Another benefit of shutters is their ability to control the temperature of a room. In the hotter months, shutters can keep your home cool by blocking out the UV rays and keeping the heat from entering in. In addition, you can alter the slats on the blind to allow a slight breeze through an open window, without blocking out all light, allowing you complete control over your working environment. In the colder months, shutters & blinds can provide insulation, keeping your home warm and cosy.

Match your shutters to the rest of the room with bespoke shutter designs

Alongside being practical, shutters can also be stylish and add character to your hideaway office. When choosing shutters or blinds for your hideaway office, it’s important to consider the colour themes and styles that you want to incorporate. Shutters come in a variety of colours which can be matched with your existing office decor. If you’re looking for a more modern feel, you could opt for shutters with a sleek, white finish. Alternatively, if you’re after something more traditional, stained wooden shutters could do the trick. At Shuttertec, we provide you with a wide variety of options for your windows, regardless of the size or shape of the window.

One of the advantages of incorporating shutters into your hideaway office is that they can be customised to fit your needs. Shutters come in various sizes, making it easy to fit any window size or shape. This level of customisation ensures that you have the perfect fit for your hideaway office which can make all the difference in creating a cohesive and comfortable space.

In conclusion, if you’re creating a hideaway office, incorporating shutters can be a simple yet effective way to create a cosy and productive space. Shutters provide lighting control, and temperature control, can match existing decor, and can be customised to fit any window size or shape.
