4 Window Treatment Ideas For Your Home Office In Southern California

May 04, 2016

When your home office has the right environment, you feel driven, yet relaxed, and can be productive. Perhaps you already own a wonderful desk and other furniture, but have you thought about your windows?

Here are four window treatments for your home office in Southern California that create the perfect atmosphere for your office so you can be more productive.

Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in Southern California that minimizes distractions, looks wonderful with any décor, and is durable enough to last for decades, then take a look at plantation shutters.

Reduce outside distractions and stay focused on your work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They dampen outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. Simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that fill your room with light to closed shutters that provide privacy and decrease glare on your monitor.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than the rest of your home, which makes them less comfortable to work in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by decreasing the heat that transfers through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more efficiently than wood shutters.

Plantation shutters don’t just reduce distractions and regulate the room’s temperature. They help create a home office you want to go to every day. Plantation shutters have distinct lines that frame your windows to bring together every piece in the room. And they can cover any shaped window - even octagonal and triangular windows. We offer many styles including our wooden Ovation® shutters, our faux wood Polywood shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

Our shutters are more than just beautiful. They’re also durable. Polywood shutters will remain pristine for over 5 decades. So no matter how frequently you update your furniture, accessories or flooring, there’s no need to update your window treatment. That way you can spend your time working instead of decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Do you want a unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that special touch that makes you want to spend time in your home office every chance you get. Try pairing them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We carry a wide array of paints, stains, styles, and hardware to give you customized barn door shutters for your home.

Slide open your barn door shutters if you need some outside inspiration for your work. Slide your shutters closed when you need more privacy or less light.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a piece of art that will be your office’s focal point.


If you want a softer look in your office, shades are a wonderful option. Make your office into a haven to retreat to by customizing your shades. Choose from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then decide on patterns, colors, and finial details.

Fabric shades dampen sound that bounces off of hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This comes in handy when you have conference calls in your home office. You can also add privacy liners to block light.


Blinds may seem like a great home office option for price-conscious homeowners in Southern California. While blinds let you control the light in your office, they’re not as resilient as plantation shutters. You’ll find yourself replacing blinds if they get damaged, and they won’t help regulate the room’s temperature or minimize outside noise. Over the years, they aren’t as economical.

You have more choices in blinds than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that break and yellow over time. Your options include metal, vertical, faux wood and hardwood blinds to build the perfect atmosphere for your home office. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
