Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Gainesville that reduces distractions, looks wonderful with any décor, and is durable, then consider plantation shutters.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters let you finish your work by minimizing outside distractions. They reduce outside noises and let you easily adjust the light. You simply adjust the louvers to move from open shutters that bathe your room in to closed shutters that give you more privacy and decrease glare on your monitor.

Home offices that are hotter or colder than the rest of your home can be uncomfortable to be in. Polywood shutters regulate the temperature by reducing the heat transfer through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t only decrease distractions and maintain the temperature of the room. They give you a home office you want to go to every day. Plantation shutters have distinct lines that frame your windows to bring together the style of the whole room. And they can cover every window shape - even octagonal and triangular windows. We carry a variety of styles such as 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 for 50+ years. So even if you switch up your paint colors, accessories, and furniture every year, you won’t need to redo your window treatment. Now, you can spend your time working and not decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Do you want a truly unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters add that special touch to your office. Now you’ll want to work in your home office every day. Combine them with our sliding doors for a flawless look. We offer a wide array of paints, stains, styles, and hardware to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

Slide open your barn door shutters if you want outside inspiration. Slide your shutters closed if you desire privacy or less brightness.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a masterful work of art that will be the focal point of your office.


Shades are the perfect window treatment when you are going for a softer look in your home office. There are countless ways to customize your shades to make your home office a haven to retreat to. Select from styles such as cellular shades, Roman shades, woven woods, pleated shades, and more. Then pick your colors, patterns, and finial details.

Rooms with hard surfaces such as large windows or wooden floors reflect a lot of sound. Fabric shades help you dampen the sounds in these rooms. This comes in handy when you have conference calls in your home office. You can also add privacy liners to block light.


Blinds may appear to be a great home office option for budget-conscious homeowners in Gainesville. While blinds still let you control the light in your office, they’re not as sturdy as plantation shutters. You end up replacing blinds if they break, and they won’t reduce noise or help regulate the room’s temperature. Over the years, they’re not as economical.

Blinds come in more options than the white, flimsy plastic blinds that break and turn dingy with time. Your options include faux wood, hardwood, metal, and vertical blinds to create the right atmosphere your home office needs. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
