Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Houston that reduces distractions, looks amazing with any décor, and is durable enough to last for decades, then plantation shutters are for you.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters help you stay focused on your work by minimizing distractions. They reduce outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. You simply adjust the louvers to change from open shutters that let light stream in to closed shutters that give you privacy and reduce glare on your monitor.

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

Plantation shutters don’t just decrease distractions and maintain the temperature of the room. They provide you with a home office you want to spend time in. The crisp lines of plantation shutters frame your windows, tying together the room’s décor. And they can cover any shaped window - even rake and circular windows. We have many styles such as 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 last for 50+ years. So no matter how frequently you redo your furniture, flooring, or paint colors, you won’t need to redo your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time on your work instead of redoing your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Do you want a truly distinct look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that touch of pizzazz that makes you want to work in your home office every day. Pair them with our sliding doors for a seamless look. We carry a large variety of colors, stains, hardware, and styles to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

Simply slide open your barn door shutters if you want a fresh view. Slide your shutters closed if you want extra privacy or less light.

Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a stunning masterpiece that becomes the central feature of your office.


When you are going for a softer look in your office, shades are the perfect choice. There are countless ways to customize your shades to turn your office into a haven. Choose from styles such as cellular shades, Roman shades, woven woods, pleated shades, and more. Then choose your colors, patterns, 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. If you need to block light, simply add privacy or room darkening liners to your shades.


If you’re a price-conscious homeowner in Houston, blinds may seem like a great home office window treatment option. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they’re not as sturdy as plantation shutters. You end up replacing them if they break, and they won’t dampen noise or help maintain the room’s temperature. Overall, they’re not as cost effective in the long run.

Blinds come in more options than the white, flimsy 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 atmosphere you envision. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
