Steps to Choosing The Best Roller Shutter Installation For Your Home

Cream & Maroon Roller Shutters on Front of Brick Home

Roller shutters have so many benefits for your family home they seem almost indispensable. Not only do they insulate your home and add security, they keep out noise and UV rays, ensure privacy, and protect your home from the elements. They look sleek and stylish and can improve the look of your house (and potentially it’s selling value). Even better, with roller shutters, you can tackle energy bills, helping to save both your money and the environment!

However, unless properly installed, you will achieve none of these things. Thankfully, the installation process is pretty easy. To make it even easier, we have the below guide to help you choose the right roller shutters to suit your needs, budget and home style.

Choose Your Preferred Roller Shutter Operation

This can be for some a difficult step in their installation journey.

Thankfully, our experienced design consultants will be on hand to guide you through this stage. But to break it down for you, here are the operating methods you can choose from, depending on your preferred style and budget:

Roller shutters can be fitted one of two ways: outside the window or inside the window opening. If you fit your shutters outside the window, it will appear flush with the wall around the window. Alternatively, you can fit the shutters inside the alcove created for some windows, so that it appears framed by the wall around it. You will have to decide which fit you’d prefer since the roller shutters will need to be measured accordingly.

Pick A Colour And Design

Once you’ve picked the operating method for your blinds as well as the fit, you have only the most enjoyable decision left to make: which colour and design you’d like your shutter blinds to have.

Shutter blinds have evolved a lot since they were first invented. Today, they can come in a variety of materials, colours and styles to suit just about any home. In fact, we at Australian Outdoor Living offer 6 standard and 10 powder coated colour options so you’re bound to found something to blend with your home’s exterior!
