Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Chicago that minimizes distractions, looks wonderful with any décor, and is durable, then think about getting plantation shutters.

Reduce distractions and get back to work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and let you easily adjust the light. You simply adjust the louvers to change from open shutters that let light stream in to closed shutters that give you more privacy and reduce glare on your monitor.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than other rooms in your home, which makes them less cozy to work in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by reducing the heat transfer through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t only reduce distractions and maintain the room’s temperature. They give you a home office you want to be in. Plantation shutters have crisp lines that frame your windows. This brings together the style of the whole room. And they can cover any window shape - even rake and circular windows. We offer many styles including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

Our shutters are more than just beautiful. They’re also durable. Polywood shutters will remain pristine for decades. So no matter how frequently you redo your paint colors, décor, or flooring, you won’t have to redo your window treatment. Now, you can spend your time working and not redecorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Are you looking for a unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that touch of pizzazz that makes you want to spend time in your home office all the time. Try pairing them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We carry a large variety of styles, paints, stains, and hardware to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

You can easily slide open your barn door shutters when you need an outdoor view. Slide your shutters closed when you desire privacy or less brightness.

Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a masterful piece of art that becomes your office’s focal point.


If you would like a softer look in your office, shades are a wonderful option. Turn your office into a haven by customizing your shades. Pick from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then pick your colors, patterns, and finial details.

Rooms with hard surfaces such as large windows or wooden floors bounce around a lot of sound. Fabric shades help you dampen the sounds in these rooms. This is especially helpful for 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 window treatment option for price-conscious homeowners in Chicago. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they aren’t as resilient as plantation shutters. You end up replacing blinds if they break. They also don’t minimize outside noise or insulate against temperatures. Overall, they’re not as cost effective in the long run.

Blinds come in more options than the flimsy white plastic blinds that can break and yellow over time. Now you can choose from hardwood, faux wood, vertical, and metal blinds to give your home office the perfect atmosphere you envision. You can also pick upgrades like motorization and cordless lift systems.
