During the Pandemic many of us started working from home instead of the office or usual workplace.

Now we are supposedly ‘back to normal’ – there are still many people working on a more frequent and regular basis from their own home office.

AND it has really shown up that your ‘home office’ is great for a hour when you get back in the evening, or for a few hours on Saturday – but for a full working day it needs some tweaks.

Apart from the obvious (comfy seat, better desk, less storage boxes and kids junk) – there are some actual alterations that can be made to make your home office life so much better.

Typical tidy home office situation

Blinds pulled down – not a great place to spend all day 

Reduce heat and glare through your windows

Often the home office is a small room – so if the sun is out it’s likely it will get very warm very quickly and stay that way. Hot and sweaty.

The sunlight also streams onto your PC screen, tablet, phone, or TV making them impossible to see properly. The glare at this time of year hurts eyes and makes concentrating difficult.

Of course you can pull the curtains or blinds if you have them – but then you’re working in a sort of black hole – which isn’t very pleasant either.

A simple and effective solution is solar control window film form Durable.

It can cut out up to 80% of heat and glare and almost completely eradicate harmful UV rays too.


Another issue with your home office may be that it is visible or over-looked by neighbours or passers-by.

Maybe you don’t have valuables on display, and perhaps the nature of your on-screen material is not sensitive, liable to breech the official secrets act or of a strictly adult nature – but it’s nice not to be gawped at or have all your washing on show – so to speak.

Having what looks like expensive kit clearly visible does present a gift to potential burglars or opportunistic thieves.

Once again Durable have the perfect solution: Privacy window film.

From opaque, frosted or mirrored to a partially obscured finish – privacy film can not only add security and peace of mind but also looks great.

Whatever you use your home office for – watch catch-up TV or online shopping rather than cracking on with your day job – there is no doubt it will be greatly enhanced and a much more usable space than it was before with the simple addition of some window film from Durable..

Feel more at home in your home office with window film from Durable.
