Venetian vs Roller Blinds for Executive Offices

Executives are usually business persons with senior job roles and responsibilities in a business organization like the president, vice-presidents or senior managers. They are usually the ones that get those precious corner offices with nice outside views.  Executive offices are also the rooms where important business meetings and business transactions takes place that is why it is important that it is presentable and impressive in terms of interior design.

For this blog we'll be featuring the mini blinds and the roller blinds and their major differences along with some sample photos in case you're deciding which ones to get for your office or your boss' office.

Monochromatic office theme using mini blinds

As seen in the photos, mini blinds can cover even wide and big windows for executive offices. Some executives prefer non-distracting and very simple monochromatic colors to be able to maintain their focus and alertness. The good thing about these types of blinds is that it has a very wide array of colors compared to, say, roller blinds to match walls, furniture, and other objects' colors. The only downside is that when it is closed, you can't really see outside view unless you purchase the perforated mini blinds type.

Mini blinds are also one of the lightest, cheapest, and most practical of all blinds so if you or your executives are the types that are practical or if the company is in a tight budget you can't get wrong with these classics.

As shown also in the photo above, mini blinds also requires very small clearance for mounting so it's easier to put it inside the window that saves more space (as opposed to installing it outside the window frame).

On the other hand, if the executive room requires maximum outside view such as in the case of a corner office of a skyscraper then roller blinds is a very good option. However, when choosing roller blinds especially the sunscreen type is a little bit tricky.  You have to make sure that you can tolerate the heat and sun glare at its brightest or hottest when the blinds are closed.  You wouldn't want to have maximum view of your surroundings while sacrificing comfort due the low insulation characteristics of sunscreen blinds especially ones that have a high openness factor.

All in all, it's a matter of balancing the executive's needs and preferences and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to making your executive room's both comfortable and visually impressive.  Both mini-blinds and roller blinds have their own strength and weaknesses and that the key is to make sure that you're familiar with the properties of these blinds to be able to decide which ones appropriate for the room.
