Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Gainesville that reduces distractions, looks wonderful with any furnishings, 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 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 reducing the heat transfer 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. Plantation shutters have distinct lines that 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 including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

Not only are our shutters stunning. They’re also durable. Polywood shutters will last decades. So even if you switch up your furniture, flooring, or paint colors annually, 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 add that special touch to your office. Now you’ll 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. 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. Privacy and room darkening liners can be added to shades 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 will have to replace blinds more often, and they won’t dampen noise or help maintain 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.
