Wood core shutters offer an easy way to add decorative appeal and protection to every room in your house. Why should you consider wood core plantation shutters? For one, they come in a variety of wood types that can be stained to match your existing décor or woodwork. With or without a stain, plantation shutters can exhibit a magnificent grain that adds to the sophistication of your dining room, living room, bedroom, or kitchen. The sturdiness of wood core shutters can also increase your home comfort and security. These decorative elements can keep out warm light during the day and cold drafts at night, allowing you to save on your energy bills. They can bolster your safety as well by providing another barrier between your family and any inclement weather or dangerous individuals outside.
Would you like to learn more about how plantation shutters can enhance your home? If so, call Bay Home & Window at (925) 401-3951 to speak with an associate at our San Francisco store. We can help you create the living space you have always wanted with our shutters and custom closet design and installation services.

Is your mudroom living up to its full potential? With the right custom closet design, it can. Rather than be utilized only as a spot for doing laundry, your mudroom can become the space where you consolidate and organize all of your outdoor items in one easy-to-find place. Consider these effective storage ideas when updating your mudroom:
Stow Sports Equipment
Living in the Bay Area gives residents ample opportunity to indulge in their favorite outdoor pastimes. The moderate weather provides the ideal backdrop for running, biking, tennis, and hiking every day of the year. Within driving distance are areas where you can also ski and enjoy other snow activities. However, all of these outdoor pastimes require the use of specialized shoes, helmets, rackets, backpacks, and other equipment. Instead of letting your outdoor belongings fall vulnerable to moisture and dirt when stored in your garage, add an organization system to your mudroom and use it to keep all of these items safe.
Give Yourself a Place to Sit
Have you noticed how difficult it can be to take off a pair of gym shoes or boots while standing up? Lighten your load by installing a custom made bench in your mudroom. Not only will a bench help to prevent slip and fall accidents, but it can also provide a space for you to easily store all of your footwear underneath the sitting area.
Organize Seasonal Outerwear
San Francisco may not get snowfall, but it can certainly experience temperature swings from one day to the next. This region also sees its fair share of precipitation throughout the year. To make sure that you can easily find your raincoat when it is wet outside, your light jacket for slightly breezy days, and your parka when you need to cover up, add a closet to your mudroom. Having a closet in which you can store your outwear can also keep you from tracking water and dirt into your home and onto your living room carpet or kitchen tile.
Let Bay Home & Window help you create a mudroom that accommodates all of your storage needs. To learn more about our closet organization systems, call (925) 401-3951 or visit our website.

Bay windows are an interesting architectural element and can provide a great focal point for your living room. Watch this video for tips on how to arrange furniture in front of a bay window.
A bay window is a source of natural light, and provides a view for you and your family to enjoy. You can use a few small, comfortable chairs to create an intimate sitting space in front of the window. Angle the chairs towards each other to encourage conversation, and put a small table in between them so you can rest drinks, snacks, or reading material there. You could also place the chairs facing the window when you want to just relax and enjoy the view.
The plantation shutter experts at Bay Home & Window can help you dress up your bay windows for a classic, sophisticated look. Call us at (925) 401-3951 or visit our website to see examples of our custom shutter work. No matter what shape your windows are, we can make shutters to fit them perfectly.

Retirement is a time for you to relax and enjoy the fruits of your many years of labor. For many retirees, it’s also a time to stay active and engaged by taking on a part- or full-time job. After years of commuting and dealing with co-workers, it may be time to consider a work-at-home job. With a good home office organization system, you can be just as productive from the comfort of your own home as you could be in an off-site office. Read on to learn about potential work-at-home jobs for retirees.
In today’s business marketplace, more and more companies are relying on workers to provide excellent customer service. Thanks to technological advances, this customer service work can be done from just about anywhere with a reliable internet connection and a relatively new computer. At-home customer service representatives may take orders, answer incoming calls, troubleshoot customer problems, and chat online as well as on the phone. With so many different responsibilities, you’ll need a dedicated work space that allows you to stay organized and on top of all of your duties.
No matter what their career was before they retired, many people enjoy work that allows them to help others during their retirement. If the idea of helping students excel in school sounds rewarding to you, consider becoming an online tutor. Tutors are needed for all subjects, including history, physics, math, science, and English. Foreign language tutors are also in high demand as the business world grows ever larger. There are online tutoring companies that can set you up with students in need, or you can set up your own tutoring service and work independently. Organization skills will be especially helpful in this position.
If you’ve always been interested in the law, consider spending some time as an online juror. You’ll participate in mock juries to give lawyers feedback on their cases. Much like regular jury duty, you cannot be a lawyer, paralegal, legal assistant, or insurance company representative to serve on an online jury.
Bay Home & Window of San Francisco offers home office organization systems so you can work after retirement from your very own house. Call us at (925) 401-3951 to inquire about our custom organization systems for your new venture.
