Telecommuting – or working via an Internet connection while in a remote location, such as one’s home – has become more desirable and practical these days. Self-directed workers can often be more productive while working on their own schedules and in their preferred environments. Companies don’t have to add another person to a crowded office or supply many standard work tools – which can be a real money saver in the long run.
While some stay-at-home workers might believe that it’s possible to sit on the deck in their pajamas as they leisurely attend to this or that project, the reality is that it takes just as much if not more discipline to work effectively from home. That often includes setting up a home office that will serve as your workspace away from the mother ship. Here are some home office drape ideas, courtesy of Houzz.com:
Floor-to-ceiling Sheer Curtains can transform a sunroom-like space in a high-rise apartment building into a scholarly, creative retreat. In addition to softening the light from the massive windows, the drapes are also translucent enough to provide a hint of a cityscape view – which might be just the kind of environment that reminds you of the real office without actually having to commute to it.
If your work space is in a more traditional room, such as a converted bedroom or dedicated study, take the time to select the right set of patterned or solid curtains that will help you (and any clients who might visit) feel right at home. There’s no need to decorate your space in an industrial way; prints can look just as professional in a well-designed room as can off-white pleated panels.
Need just a single splash of fabric to make the right statement for a home office dotted with antique furniture and classic paintings? Try gathering one or more of our sumptuous Signature Silk Curtains in a couple of places by using strategically placed curtain pulls. This can create a bunched effect that looks as lavish as anything you might happen to find in a five-star hotel. And the statement it makes will be one that your clients will never forget.
