Plantation Shutters

Paul James Blinds’ range of high quality plantation shutters are made to measure, carefully crafted out of the finest materials and installed by some of the best fitters in the industry. We cover the areas of Colchester and Sudbury, offering free home visits to measure the windows and discuss the styling options available.

Plantation shutters are the perfect option for windows facing harsh sunlight regularly, offering optimum light control and easy use.

Benefits of Plantation Shutters:

Enhanced Privacy and Security:

The design of plantation shutters – with their thick slats and bold framework – ensures that you have unparalleled levels of privacy. No more prying eyes or unwanted attention; you’re in control of what’s visible.

Optimal Insulation:

Made from robust, insulating materials, plantation shutters act as a thermal barrier, helping you maintain the desired temperature in your home. This quality insulation means that during the colder months, warmth remains inside, and in warmer periods, it provides a cooling effect, enhancing the overall comfort of your living space.

Versatile Light Management:

One of the key attributes of plantation shutters is their adaptability in controlling sunlight levels. Whether you wish to drench your room in sunlight or prefer a dimmer setting, the choice is yours. These shutters can be fitted to cover the entire window or just the lower half, offering flexibility. With easy-to-adjust slats, achieving the precise level of shading you desire becomes a seamless task.

    Review of Paul James Blinds. We had our new dining room blackout roller blinds from Paul James blinds fitted in September. Paul: Poor Paul actually came out to our house a total of three times as we kept prevaricating and couldn't make up our minds what we wanted! Every time he came he was friendly, patient and helpful. Dawn: Every time I spoke to Dawn on the phone she was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. Andy the fitter: Extremely friendly, efficient and professional. A brilliant team, and we are very happy with the blinds, which were very reasonably priced considering the service and the fact that fitting is included. Thank you from Becky and Dave Long Melford.

    Totally recommend Paul & his team. From quote to installation I got a first-class service & I absolutely love my new shutters. Special thanks to Paul for repairing my Roman blind on the day he came to quote for the shutters in the bedrooms!

    We have just used Paul James Blinds to fit 3 roman blinds in our bathrooms. Professional and responsive from start to finish, they were happy to source fabrics I had already identified from fabric houses online and the fitter was super speedy at fitting them, leaving no mess whatsoever. I would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you guys!
