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.

Reduce outside distractions and get back to work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. 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 that transfers through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more efficiently than wood shutters.

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. Plantation shutters have distinct lines that 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 no matter how much you redo your paint colors, décor, or flooring, 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 add that special touch to your office. Now you’ll 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. Customize your shades to match your design style and give your office that personalized look. Select from styles such as roller shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, and more. Then decide on colors, patterns, and finial details.

Fabric shades dampen sound in rooms with hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This is really helpful for conference calls in your home office. Privacy and room darkening liners can be added to shades to block light.


Blinds may seem like a great home office option for budget-conscious homeowners in Southern California. 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 give your home office the exact atmosphere you envision. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
