Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in New York City that reduces distractions, looks wonderful with any furnishings, and is durable enough to last for decades, then think about getting plantation shutters.

Reduce your distractions and finish your work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. 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.

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 these shutters 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 .

Our shutters are more than just beautiful. They’re also 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 give your office that special touch that makes you 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 are a wonderful window treatment if you want a softer look in your home office. Make your office into a haven to retreat to by customizing your shades. Select from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then pick your patterns, colors, 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. If you need to block light, simply add privacy or room darkening liners to your shades.


If you’re a price-conscious homeowner in New York City, blinds may appear to be a great home office window treatment option. 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 help maintain the room’s temperature or dampen noise. Overall, they’re not as cost effective in the long run.

You have more choices in blinds than just 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.
