Plantation Shutters

If you need a home office window treatment in Hartford that reduces distractions, looks amazing with any furnishings, and is durable enough to last for decades, then consider plantation shutters.

Reduce distractions and finish your work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and let you easily adjust the light. You simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that bathe your room in to closed shutters that provide privacy and decrease glare on your monitor.

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

Plantation shutters don’t just decrease distractions and regulate the room’s temperature. They give you a home office you want to spend time in. Plantation shutters have clean lines that frame your windows, which brings together the style of the whole room. And they can be mounted on any shaped window - even octagonal and triangular windows. We offer several styles including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

Not only are our shutters beautiful. They’re also durable. Polywood shutters will last for over 5 decades. So no matter how frequently you update your furniture, accessories or flooring, there’s no need to update your window treatment. That way you can spend your time working instead of redoing your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Would you like a truly unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters add a bit of pizzazz to your office. Now you’ll want to spend time in your home office all the time. Pair them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We carry a wide variety of colors, stains, hardware, and styles to make your barn doors shutters unique to you and your home.

You can easily slide open your barn door shutters if you need some outside inspiration for your work. Close your barn door shutters if you want privacy or less brightness.

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 like a softer look in your home office. There are endless ways to customize your shades to make your home office a haven to retreat to. Choose from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then pick 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 comes in handy when you have conference calls in your home office. You can also add privacy liners to block light.


Blinds may seem like a great home office window treatment option for budget-conscious homeowners in Hartford. While blinds give you control over the light in your office, they’re not as sturdy as plantation shutters. You end up replacing blinds if they get damaged, and they won’t dampen noise or save on heating and cooling costs. In the long run, they’re not as economical.

You have more choices in blinds than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that can break and turn dingy with time. Now you can choose from metal, vertical, faux wood and hardwood blinds to give your home office the atmosphere it needs. Upgrade your blinds with cordless lift systems and motorization.
