There are many benefits of stylish custom made roller shutters, from home security to keeping your home cool during summer and warm during winter. But did you know they can also be a stylish, complementary addition to your home facade?
Take a look at some of our favourite projects and see how custom made roller shutters can be a beautiful addition to your home.
Choosing the colour of your custom made roller shutters
New homes are often bold, with highly contrasting colour schemes including whites, blacks and greys. So for a contemporary look, we recommend continuing this theme through to your shutters and making them a statement piece by matching the shutters to the feature colour of your home.
Think lighter colours, like cream and white, as traditional roller shutters are designed to blend into their surroundings. Some clients choose to add an accent ‘highlight’ of red, green or charcoal to their shutters to compliment their roof or guttering.
Our website showcases a full range of color options, so you’re sure to find something that fits your style and preferences. Take a look and discover the perfect color for your home.
Choosing an operation system
With four unique methods of operation to choose from, roller shutters can be adapted to suit your space, needs and style of your home.
The strap winch
The strap winch, or strap winder, is the most common operating system of the four. It features a handle that you can manually wind to raise or lower your shutters. The winder can be removed when not in use so that only the base plate is visible.
Moreover, the installation process of the strap winch is simple and straightforward, as it does not require electricity and is operated manually.
The strap coiler
Our strap coiler pulley system is ideal for small, awkward areas, so it’s perfect for bathroom windows. Just like the strap winch, this system doesn’t require electricity and is operated via a manual winder.
The remote control option conveniently allows you to roll your shutter up or down from anywhere in the room. All you have to do is point and click, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings when you just want a few more hours of sleep.
This option is more of a subtle inclusion in your home. We’ll install electric cables inside the wall to a switch, much like a light switch.
Therefore, It’s just as convenient as the remote control, without the possibility of misplacing it.
