Plantation Shutters and Blinds

Regardless of the style of your interior, James Taylor Construction (JTC) can provide window treatments to greatly enhance the beauty and uniqueness of your home. Cost-prohibitive to many homeowners in the past, custom window treatments are now an affordable way to update the look of your living space. The many advances in manufacturing technology of window treatments can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient by reducing heat, drafts, and glare. The right choice of window treatment can even facilitate a better night’s sleep by blocking all outside light.

Window treatments are a great way to add color, patterns, and texture to the interior of your home. Many homeowners and decorators choose window coverings before deciding on other furniture or accessories; the overall décor is then based on the color and style of the window treatments. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by decorating your interior, it may help to make window treatments the starting point. They greatly influence the mood of a room.

Regardless of the feel you want (airy, cozy, romantic, elegant, etc.), there are window treatments that can set the tone. In general, they should contrast with your wall color (for example, white shutters in a room with tan walls). Often, window treatments complement one or more of the main tones found in the primary furniture in the room. Custom wood plantation shutters, such as those we installed in the Governor’s Mansion, can be made to accommodate windows and doors of any size or shape.

At JTC, our professional staff walks you through a variety of options for custom-made window treatments that include plantation shutters, blinds, and shades. The team at JTC recommends that you choose quality products that will last. We encourage the use of top grade shutters and blinds that are proudly produced right here in North Carolina. In fact, over 75% of the products we sell are locally made, not shipped in from China or Mexico.

Our signature composite plantation shutters are maintenance-free and guaranteed never to crack, peel, warp, or fade. We also offer premium hardwood shutters in a variety of custom paint and stain finishes and provide a color matching service. Custom blinds are available in wood, faux wood, and aluminum (and even without cords to help keep kids safe). A full line of shades includes cellular, woven wood, roman, roller, and sun screens.

We can also provide window film products. Our energy conserving window film blocks 99.9% of the UV rays that fade and damage hardwood floors, furniture, and other interior finishes. It rejects up to 60% of heat transferred in (summer) and out (winter). When privacy isn’t an issue, film allows constant access to spectacular views, while reducing glare and lowering heating and cooling bills.

At JTC, we offer FREE in-home/office design consultations and estimates to help you choose the best products for your budget. Employees, not sub-contractors, complete all measuring and installation. Because of our commitment to detail and prompt service, shutters can typically be custom-made and installed in your home in as little as 2–3 weeks. Whether you’re decorating to increase your home’s resale value, redecorating a house you plan to stay in, or furnishing a new home, let JTC provide you with the personalized service you deserve.
