Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in Southern California that reduces distractions, looks amazing with any furnishings, and is durable, then think about getting plantation shutters.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters let you stay focused on your work by reducing your distractions. They reduce outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. You simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that bathe your room in to closed shutters that offer more privacy and decrease glare on your monitor.

Home offices that are colder or hotter than other rooms in your home can be uncomfortable to work in. Polywood shutters regulate the temperature by reducing the heat transfer through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t just decrease distractions and moderate the room’s temperature. They provide you with a home office you want to be in. The crisp lines of plantation shutters frame your windows, tying together every piece in the room. And they can be mounted on any shaped window - even triangular and octagonal windows. We carry a variety of styles such as our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® 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 even if you change your furniture, flooring, or paint colors annually, you won’t have to redo your window treatment. That way you can spend more time working and not decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Do you want a unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that bit of pizzazz that makes you want to be in your home office every chance you get. Pair them with our sliding doors for a seamless look. We have a wide selection of paints, stains, styles, and hardware to give you customized barn door shutters for your home.

Simply slide open your barn door shutters if you need outside inspiration. Slide your shutters closed when you desire more privacy or a lower level of light.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a masterful masterpiece that will become your office’s focal point.


When you want a softer look in your office, shades are the perfect option. Turn your office into a haven to retreat to by customizing your shades. Select from styles such as roller shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, and more. Then decide on colors, patterns, and finial details.

Rooms with hard surfaces such as large windows or wooden floors reflect a lot of sound. You can dampen the sound in these rooms with fabric shades. This is really helpful for conference calls in your home office. Privacy and room darkening liners can be added to shades to block light.


If you’re a budget-conscious homeowner in Southern California, blinds may appear to be a great home office option. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they won’t be as sturdy as plantation shutters. You will have to replace blinds if they get damaged, and they won’t dampen outside noise or help maintain the room’s temperature. They aren’t as cost effective over the years.

Blinds have evolved past the flimsy white plastic blinds that break and turn dingy with time. Your options include hardwood, faux wood, vertical, and metal blinds to build the right atmosphere your home office needs. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
