4 Home Office Window Treatment Ideas In San Jose

May 04, 2016

When you have the right atmosphere in your home office, you feel energized, yet relaxed, and can focus on your work. Maybe you already own the perfect furniture and desk, but have you thought about your windows?

Here are four window treatments for your home office in San Jose that will create the best atmosphere for your office so that you can get more work done.

Plantation Shutters

If you want a home office window treatment in San Jose that reduces distractions, looks wonderful with any furnishings, and is durable, then plantation shutters are for you.

Minimize your distractions and stay focused on your work with our Polywood® plantation shutters. They reduce outside noises and make it easy to regulate light. You simply tilt the louvers to switch from open shutters that fill your room with light to closed shutters that provide privacy and reduce glare on your monitor.

Home offices are often colder or hotter than other rooms in your home, which makes them less cozy to be in. Polywood shutters regulate the temperature by reducing the heat that transfers through your windows. They insulate up to 70% more than wood shutters.

Plantation shutters don’t only decrease distractions and regulate the room’s temperature. They help create a home office you want to be in. Plantation shutters have crisp lines that frame your windows. This brings together every piece in the room. And these shutters can be mounted on every window shape - even rake and circular windows. We carry several styles such as 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 over 5 decades. So no matter how frequently you redo your furniture, flooring, or paint colors, you won’t have to change out your window treatment. That way you can spend more time working instead of decorating your windows.

Barn Door Shutters

Would you like a truly distinct look for your home office? Sliding barn door shutters give your office that special touch that makes you want to work in your home office all the time. You can even pair them with our sliding doors for a smooth look. We offer a wide selection of colors, stains, hardware, and styles so that you can customize your barn door shutters to your home.

It’s easy to slide open your barn door shutters when you need some outside inspiration for your work. Slide your shutters closed if you desire extra privacy or a lower level of light.

Open or closed, barn door shutters are a masterful work of art that becomes the focal point of your office.


Shades are a traditional window treatment when you want a softer look in your home office. Customize your shades to complement your design style and give your office that personalized look. Pick 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 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.


If you’re a price-conscious homeowner in San Jose, blinds may appear to be a great home office option. While blinds still let you control the light in your office, they’re not as solid as plantation shutters. You will have to replace blinds more often. They also don’t insulate against temperatures or reduce outside noise. Over the years, they aren’t as cost effective.

You have more choices in blinds than just the white, flimsy plastic blinds that break and yellow over time. Your options include faux wood, hardwood, metal, and vertical blinds to give your home office the atmosphere you envision. You can also select upgrades like cordless lift systems and motorization.
