Maybe you already own a wonderful desk and other furniture, but what about your windows? Here are four window treatments for your home office in Austin that will create the best atmosphere for your office so you can increase your productivity. Plantation Shutters photo courtesy of Jane Cunningham with Room Resolutions If you want a home office window treatment in Austin that reduces distractions, looks stunning with any décor, and is durable, then think about getting plantation shutters. Reduce your distractions and stay focused on your 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 let light stream in to closed shutters that give you privacy and reduce glare on your monitor. Home offices are often colder or hotter than other parts of your home, which makes them less cozy to be in. Polywood shutters moderate the temperature by decreasing the heat that passes through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more efficiently 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, which ties together the style of the whole room. And these shutters can be installed on every window shape - even triangular and octagonal windows. We offer several styles including our faux wood Polywood shutters, our wooden Ovation® shutters, and reclaimed wood plantation shutters . In addition to being beautiful, our shutters are durable. Polywood shutters will last over 5 decades. So no matter how often you redo your furniture, accessories or flooring, there’s no need to redo your window treatment. Now, you can spend more time working and not decorating 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 work in your home office every chance you get. You can even pair them with our sliding doors for a flawless look. We offer a wide selection of paints, stains, styles, and hardware so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home. You can easily slide open your barn door shutters when you want an outdoor view. Slide your shutters closed when you desire extra privacy or less brightness. Whether they’re opened or closed, barn door shutters are a stunning piece of art that becomes your office’s focal point. Shades When you would like a softer look in your office, shades are a wonderful choice. There are countless ways to customize your shades to make your home office a haven to retreat to. Choose from styles such as woven woods, Roman shades, rollers shades, and more. Then choose your patterns, colors, and finial details. Fabric shades dampen sound that bounces off of hard surfaces such as wooden floors or large windows. This comes in handy when you have conference calls in your home office. If you need to block light, simply add privacy or room darkening liners to your shades. Blinds If you’re a price-conscious homeowner in Austin, blinds may seem like a great home office option. While blinds give you control over the light in your office, they won’t be as solid as plantation shutters. You will have to replace blinds if they get damaged. They also don’t dampen outside noise or save on heating and cooling costs. Overall, they’re not as cost effective in the long run. Blinds aren’t limited to the flimsy white plastic blinds that break and yellow over time. We offer blinds such as hardwood, faux wood, vertical, and metal blinds to create the perfect atmosphere for your home office. You can even select upgrades like cordless lift systems and motorization.
