Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in Detroit that reduces distractions, looks beautiful with any furnishings, and can last for decades without replacing it, then plantation shutters are for you.

Reduce your distractions and get back to work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and let you easily control the light. You can quickly switch from open shutters that bathe your room in to closed shutters that offer more privacy and reduce glare on your monitor.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than other rooms in your home, which can make them uncomfortable to be in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by reducing the heat transfer through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more than wood shutters.

Plantation shutters don’t just reduce distractions and maintain 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 to bring together the room’s décor. And they can be installed on any window shape - even octagonal and triangular windows. We carry a variety of styles including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters .

Not only are our shutters stunning. They’re also durable. Polywood shutters will last for decades. So even if you switch up your décor and furnishings annually, there’s no need to update your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time working and not redoing your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Do you want a truly distinct 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 every chance you get. Pair them with our sliding doors for a flawless look. We carry a wide array of styles, paints, stains, and hardware so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home.

You can easily slide open your barn door shutters if you need an outdoor view. Slide your shutters closed if you need more privacy or a lower level of light.

Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a stunning masterpiece that will be the focal point of your office.


If you would like a softer look in your office, shades are the perfect option. There are endless ways to customize your shades to make your home office a haven to retreat to. Choose from styles such as cellular shades, Roman shades, woven woods, pleated shades, and more. Then decide on 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 especially helpful for conference calls in your home office. If you need to block light, simply add privacy or room darkening liners to your shades.


Blinds may seem like a great home office option for budget-conscious homeowners in Detroit. Although blinds give you control over the light in your office, they aren’t as resilient as plantation shutters. You end up replacing them if they break. They also don’t minimize outside noise or help regulate the room’s temperature. In the long run, they’re not as economical.

You have more choices in blinds than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that are likely to break and turn dingy over time. We offer blinds such as metal, vertical, faux wood and hardwood blinds to give your home office the atmosphere it needs. You can also pick upgrades like motorization and cordless lift systems.
