Plantation Shutters

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

Reduce distractions and get back to work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. Simply tilt the louvers to move from open shutters that fill your room with light to closed shutters that offer more privacy and decrease monitor glare.

Home offices that are colder or hotter than the rest of your home aren’t comfortable to be in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by reducing the heat that transfers through your windows.

Plantation shutters don’t just minimize distractions and moderate the temperature of the room. They help create a home office you want to go to every day. The crisp lines of plantation shutters frame your windows, tying together the style of the whole room. And they can be installed on every window shape - even triangular and octagonal windows. We carry a variety of 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 50+ years. So no matter how frequently you update your furniture, flooring, or paint colors, there’s no need to change out your window treatment. You can spend your time working and not decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Are you looking for a unique look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that special touch that makes you want to spend time in your home office every day. Pair them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We carry a wide selection of styles, paints, stains, and hardware to give you customized barn door shutters for your home.

Slide open your barn door shutters when you need an outdoor view. Close your barn door shutters when you want extra privacy or less light.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a masterful masterpiece that becomes the central feature of your office.


If you would like a softer look in your office, shades are an excellent choice. Customize your shades to complement your design style and give your office that personalized look. Select from styles such as Roman shades, cellular shades, woven woods, roller shades, and more. Then choose your colors, patterns, and finial details.

Fabric shades dampen sound that bounces off of hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. 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 window treatment option for budget-conscious homeowners in Minneapolis. Although blinds let you control the light in your office, they won’t be as solid as plantation shutters. You end up replacing them if they get damaged, and they won’t dampen noise or insulate against temperatures. They aren’t as cost effective over the years.

There are more choices in blinds today than just the flimsy white plastic blinds that break and yellow over time. Your options include metal, vertical, faux wood and hardwood blinds to create the perfect atmosphere for your home office. Upgrade your blinds with motorization and cordless lift systems.
