Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Houston that reduces distractions, looks amazing with any décor, and can last for decades without replacing it, then plantation shutters are for you.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters help you get back to work by reducing distractions. They reduce outside noises and let you easily control the light. You simply adjust the louvers to switch from open shutters that let light stream in to closed shutters that give you privacy and reduce monitor glare.

Home offices are often hotter or colder than other parts of your home, which makes them less cozy to work in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by decreasing 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 regulate the temperature of the room. They provide you with a home office you want to spend time in. Plantation shutters have clean lines that frame your windows, tying together the room’s décor. And they can cover every window shape - even triangular and octagonal windows. We offer 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 decades. So even if you switch up your décor and furnishings each year, you won’t need to redo your window treatment. You can spend your time working instead of redecorating 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 smooth 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 more privacy or less light.

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


Shades are a traditional window treatment if you are going for a softer look in your home office. Make your office into a haven by customizing your shades. Pick from styles such as cellular shades, Roman shades, woven woods, pleated shades, and more. Then decide on 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.


Blinds may appear to be a great home office option for price-conscious homeowners in Houston. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they aren’t as sturdy as plantation shutters. You will have to replace them if they break, and they won’t help regulate the room’s temperature or dampen noise. They’re not as cost effective in the long run.

Blinds come in more options than the white, flimsy plastic blinds that can break and turn dingy with time. Now you can choose from metal, vertical, faux wood and hardwood blinds to give your home office the atmosphere you envision. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
