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.

Minimize outside distractions and get back to work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and let you easily adjust the light. Simply adjust the louvers to move from open shutters that bathe your room in to closed shutters that offer more privacy and decrease glare on your monitor.

Home offices that are hotter or colder than other parts of your home can be uncomfortable to be in. Polywood shutters regulate the temperature by decreasing the heat that passes through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t only decrease distractions and regulate the temperature of the room. They help create a home office you want to work in. The crisp lines of plantation shutters frame your windows, which ties together the style of the whole room. And they can cover every window shape - even octagonal and triangular windows. We carry several 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 decades. So no matter how much you redo your furniture, accessories or flooring, you won’t need to redo your window treatment. You can spend your time working and not decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Are you looking for a truly unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that special touch that makes you want to spend time in your home office every day. Combine them with our sliding doors for a flawless look. We carry a wide array of styles, paints, stains, and hardware to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

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

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


Shades are the perfect window treatment when you are going for 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 cellular shades, Roman shades, woven woods, pleated shades, and more. Then pick your colors, patterns, and finial details.

Fabric shades dampen sound in rooms with hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This comes in handy when you have conference calls in your home office. Privacy and room darkening liners can be added to shades to block light.


If you’re a budget-conscious homeowner in Gainesville, blinds may seem like a great home office option. While blinds still let you control the light in your office, they’re not as sturdy as plantation shutters. You will have to replace blinds more often, and they won’t dampen noise or help maintain the room’s temperature. They aren’t as cost effective over the years.

You have more choices in blinds today than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that break and turn dingy with time. Your options include faux wood, hardwood, metal, and vertical blinds to give your home office the atmosphere you envision. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
