A big impact of the Covid 19 Pandemic is that far more of us are now working from home. Ensure you maximise natural daylight in your home working environment – it’s good for your well-being says Crittall Windows…
The small office/home office trend has been growing for some time. With the Covid-19 pandemic dramatically impacting on how – and where – we work, it looks set to be an even bigger part of modern living.
Increased home working for more people will be the norm as the majority of businesses consider it to likely be a permanent feature. A survey of almost 1,000 firms by the Institute of Directors (IoD)* shows that 74% plan on maintaining the increase in home working. Over half planned to reduce their long-term use of workplaces.
‘Evidence suggests it’s important to have a feel good factor inside your home. Our positive well-being depends on frequent exposure to light, and daylight is the most powerful way, especially during these times of the pandemic, with more of us working from home and creating a home office or working zone’, says Russell Ager, Crittall’s managing director.
‘Our homes play a big part in our sense of well-being and their design; lighting and exposure to natural light through windows and doors really do impact’.
Steel-framed windows are ideal with their inherent strength allowing large expanses of glass, elegantly slender frames and the slimmest of profiles.
Crittall has launched a Crittall Community for homeowners and renovators to display their installations and bespoke use of Crittall products.
View the new area here – an open platform for members (customers with Crittall windows, doors or internal screens installed) to share ideas and inspire each other, showcasing their installations, and reinforcing their customer journey from start to finish of their project.
An annual award will be given for the ‘Crittall Home of the Year’, which will be promoted via social media. Find the details on our Instagram page @crittall_windows_uk
