Window Blinds

Blinds are a functional and attractive window treatment choice for many Jacksonville homes. Blinds offer effective lighting control and come in a variety of colors and styles to compliment any room. If you are on a budget, or if you have always appreciated the simplistic look of traditional blinds, Great Window Shades, Inc. offers a few types of basic aluminum blind choices to fit your needs. Alternatively, vertical blinds are also a budget-friendly way to treat your windows. Available in traditional vinyl or decorative fabric, vertical blinds can offer durable lighting control throughout your home. If you are looking for a timeless, elegant style, consider choosing wood or faux wood blinds for your Jacksonville windows. Custom built for your windows, our wood blinds are available in a variety of colors and finishes to suit every room in your home. However, natural wood blinds can be damaged over time by exposure to moisture. If you want the appearance of wood blinds in your home, but are concerned about humidity or moisture in the bathroom or kitchen, faux wood blinds are a durable alternative to the real deal. Whatever type of blind best suits your style and budget, the Jacksonville window blinds experts at Great Window Shades Inc. are sure to have what you are looking for!


Available in several styles and many fabrics and colors, shades are a fun way to add style to every room. Pleated shades are a great way to diffuse incoming sunlight and bring a subtle texture to any room. Our Roman shades come in a wider variety of colors and textures, and can be lined to add superior privacy and light control. Honeycomb shades are also a fantastic choice for any Jacksonville household. Among the more expensive shade options, cellular honeycomb shades are designed to add energy efficiency to your home. They can insulate your windows, helping to keep your inside air cool even on the hottest summer days, saving you money on your energy bills. Of course, cellular honeycomb shades are just as beautiful as they are functional. Great Window Shades Inc. offers honeycomb shades in many different colors, and even has blackout versions for those rooms that you want to darken completely. Whatever type you prefer, shades offer great lighting control and are a great way add style to any home.


Shutters are one of the most classic and durable window treatment options available. Vinyl shutters are the most inexpensive variety of interior shutters, but they do not skimp on style or function. Mimicking the appearance of real wood shutters, vinyl shutters provide effective and long-lasting lighting control. Real wood shutters, while more expensive, add quality and value to your home and can last for ages with proper maintenance. Due to their durable nature, plantation shutters are a great option for homes with lots of activity, or with young children or rowdy pets. In addition to durability, shutters create architectural interest and offer a classic style built right into your windows. Shutters will accentuate the beauty of any home, and are versatile enough to last through many décor changes. As a bonus, shutters are the easiest window treatments to keep clean and dust-free. Whether you prefer vinyl or real wood, Great Window Shades Inc. will custom build your new interior shutters.

If you are in the market for new window treatments, you have many options to choose from. Whether you narrow it down to blinds, shades, or shutters, you still have to decide on materials, colors, and added options. At Great Window Shades Inc., we offer in-home appointments to help you decide what will work best for your home. If you are having trouble deciding, contact us today for expert help with your Jacksonville window treatments!
