Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Boston that minimizes distractions, looks stunning with any décor, and is durable enough to last for decades, then take a look at plantation shutters.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters help you stay focused on your work by minimizing outside distractions. They dampen outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. Simply adjust the louvers to move from open shutters that fill your room with light to closed shutters that offer more privacy and reduce monitor glare.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than the rest of your home, which can make them uncomfortable to work in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by reducing the heat that transfers through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t only minimize distractions and regulate the temperature of the room. They help create a home office you want to work in. Plantation shutters have crisp lines that frame your windows. This brings together the room’s décor. And they can cover any shaped window - even rake and circular windows. We have several styles including 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 remain pristine for over 5 decades. So no matter how much you change your furniture, accessories or flooring, you won’t need to change out your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time working and not decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Are you looking for a truly distinct 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 chance you get. Pair them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We have a large variety of paints, stains, styles, and hardware to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

Simply slide open your barn door shutters when you need outside inspiration. Slide your shutters closed if you want extra privacy or less brightness.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a work of art that becomes the central feature of your office.


If you would like a softer look in your office, shades are the perfect choice. There are endless ways to customize your shades to make your home office a haven to retreat to. Choose from styles such as roller shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, and more. Then choose your patterns, colors, and finial details.

Rooms with hard surfaces such as large windows or wooden floors bounce around a lot of sound. You can dampen the sound in these rooms with fabric shades. This is really helpful for 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 price-conscious homeowners in Boston. Although blinds give you control over the light in your office, they won’t be as durable as plantation shutters. You’ll find yourself replacing blinds if they get damaged. They also don’t help maintain the room’s temperature or minimize outside noise. Over the years, they’re not as economical.

You have more options in blinds today than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that break and yellow over time. Your options include faux wood, hardwood, metal, and vertical blinds to create the right atmosphere your home office needs. You can even select upgrades like motorization and cordless lift systems.
