Our Polywood® plantation shutters help you finish your work by reducing outside distractions. They dampen outside noises and let you easily control the light. Simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that let light stream in to closed shutters that offer more privacy and reduce glare on your monitor. Home offices are often hotter or colder than other rooms in your home, which makes them less cozy to be in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by decreasing the heat transfer through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more than wood shutters. Plantation shutters don’t just decrease distractions and maintain the room’s temperature. They provide you with a home office you want to work in. Plantation shutters have crisp lines that frame your windows. This brings together every piece in the room. And they can cover every window shape - even rake and circular windows. We carry a variety of styles including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters . In addition to being beautiful, our shutters are durable. Polywood shutters will last 50+ years. So no matter how often you update your paint colors, décor, or flooring, there’s no need to redo your window treatment. That way you can spend your time working instead of redecorating your windows. Barn Door Shutters Would you like a truly unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters add a touch of pizzazz to your office. Now you’ll want to be in your home office every chance you get. Try pairing them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We carry a large array of colors, stains, hardware, and styles so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home. Simply slide open your barn door shutters when you want some outside inspiration for your work. Close your barn door shutters if you want privacy or less brightness. Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a piece of art that becomes your office’s focal point. Shades Shades are a wonderful window treatment if you want a softer look in your home office. Customize your shades to match your design style and give your office that personalized look. Select from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then pick your patterns, colors, and finial details. Fabric shades dampen sound that bounces off of hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This is really helpful for conference calls in your home office. If you need to block light, simply add privacy or room darkening liners to your shades. Blinds Blinds may appear to be a great home office option for budget-conscious homeowners in New York City. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they aren’t as resilient as plantation shutters. You will have to replace blinds more often. They also don’t reduce noise or help regulate the room’s temperature. Overall, they’re not as cost effective in the long run. Blinds come in more options than the flimsy white plastic blinds that are likely to break and yellow over time. Your options include vertical, metal, hardwood, and faux wood blinds to give your home office the perfect atmosphere it needs. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
