There are many benefits of stylish 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 roller shutters can be a beautiful addition to your home.
Choosing the colour of your roller shutters
New homes are often bold, with high contrasting colour schemes including whites, blacks and greys. For a contemporary look, we recommend continuing this theme through to your shutters. Make 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 surrounds. Some clients choose to add an accent ‘highlight’ of red, green or charcoal to their shutters to compliment their roof or guttering.

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.
The installation process is quick and easy as it is a manual winder and doesn’t require electricity.
The strap coiler
Our strap coiler pulley system is ideal for small, awkward areas, so it’s perfect for bathroom windows. 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 point and click, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings when you just want a few more hours 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.
It’s just as convenient as the remote control, without the possibility of misplacing it.
