May 04, 2016

When you have the right environment in your home office, you are energized, relaxed, and can get work done. Perhaps you already have the perfect desk and furniture, but what about your windows?

Here are four window treatments for your home office in Seattle that create the best environment for your office so that you can increase your productivity.

Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in Seattle that reduces distractions, looks wonderful with any décor, and is durable enough to last for decades, then plantation shutters are for you.

Our Polywood® plantation shutters let you stay focused on your work by reducing outside distractions. They dampen outside noises and let you easily adjust the light. Simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that let light stream in to closed shutters that give you privacy and decrease monitor glare.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than the rest of your home, which makes them less comfortable to be in. Polywood shutters regulate the temperature by reducing the heat that transfers through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t just reduce distractions and moderate the room’s temperature. They help create a home office you want to spend time in. The crisp lines of plantation shutters frame your windows, which brings together the style of the whole room. And they can be mounted on every window shape - even triangular and octagonal windows. We carry 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 decades. So no matter how much you change your furniture, accessories or flooring, there’s no need to redo your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time working and not redoing your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Are you looking for a truly distinct look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that bit of pizzazz that makes you want to be in your home office every chance you get. Pair them with our sliding doors for a flawless look. We have a wide selection of colors, stains, hardware, and styles so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home.

You can easily slide open your barn door shutters when you want some outside inspiration for your work. Close your barn door shutters if you want extra privacy or a lower level of light.

Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a work of art that becomes the central feature of your office.


Shades are the perfect window treatment when you want a softer look in your home office. Make your office into a haven to retreat to by customizing your shades. Choose from styles such as woven woods, Roman shades, rollers shades, and more. Then choose your colors, patterns, 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. 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 Seattle. Although blinds give you control over the light in your office, they’re not as sturdy as plantation shutters. You end up replacing them more often. They also don’t save on heating and cooling costs or reduce outside noise. In the long run, they’re not as economical.

You have more options in blinds than just the flimsy white plastic blinds that break and turn dingy with time. Now you can choose from hardwood, faux wood, vertical, and metal blinds to create the right atmosphere for your home office. You can also select upgrades like cordless lift systems and motorization.
