May 04, 2016

When your home office has the right atmosphere, you feel energized, relaxed, and can focus on your work. Maybe you already own a wonderful desk and other furniture, but have you thought about your windows?

Here are four window treatments for your home office in Fort Lauderdale that create the best atmosphere for your office so that you can be more productive.

Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Fort Lauderdale that minimizes distractions, looks beautiful with any décor, and can last for decades without replacing it, then think about getting 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. You simply tilt the louvers to switch 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 colder or hotter than other parts of your home are less comfortable to work in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by decreasing the heat transfer through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t just reduce distractions and maintain the temperature of the room. They help create a home office you want to go to every day. Plantation shutters have crisp lines that frame your windows. This brings together the room’s décor. And they can be installed on every window shape - even octagonal and triangular windows. We have several styles such as our wooden Ovation® shutters, our faux wood Polywood shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

In addition to being beautiful, our shutters are durable. Polywood shutters will remain pristine for 50+ years. So no matter how frequently you redo your paint colors, décor, or flooring, you won’t need to change out your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time on your work instead of decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Would you like a truly unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that touch of pizzazz that makes you want to work in your home office every day. Combine them with our sliding doors for a seamless look. We carry a large variety of styles, paints, stains, and hardware so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home.

It’s easy to slide open your barn door shutters when you need some outside inspiration for your work. Slide your shutters closed when you desire more privacy or less brightness.

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


Shades are a traditional window treatment when you want a softer look in your home office. Customize your shades to match your design style and give your office that personalized look. Choose from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then decide on patterns, colors, and finial details.

Fabric shades dampen sound in rooms with hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This is especially helpful for conference calls in your home office. You can also add privacy liners to block light.


If you’re a price-conscious homeowner in Fort Lauderdale, blinds may appear to be a great home office option. While blinds still let you control the light in your office, they won’t be as sturdy as plantation shutters. You end up replacing blinds if they get damaged. They also don’t help regulate the room’s temperature or reduce outside noise. They’re not as cost effective over the years.

There are more choices in blinds today than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that are likely to break and yellow over time. Now you can choose from vertical, metal, hardwood, and faux wood blinds to give your home office the atmosphere you want. You can even select upgrades like motorization and cordless lift systems.
