If you’re thinking of having a minimalist interior design idea for your home or office, then it’s a good idea to consider using roller shutters for your home.
What are Roller Shutters?
Roller shutters are window-length (can be cut to custom fit) shutters that have a storage cylinder mounted on top of the window frame. They either have a manual mechanical system or a motor to roll up the blinds into the cylinder when not in use. You can also control the increments of how much of the blinds are dropped down. The shutters themselves can be made of cloth, cloth-like material, and even aluminium.
Roller shutters are normally installed externally, while roller blinds are more for the internal spaces of the home.
How do you install roller shutters?
Roller shutters are simple to install and come with the screws and other items needed for your wall’s material. Of course, the power tools for installation and the level for proper positioning are necessary, too. While you can pursue installation as a DIY project, you can also call in professional help.
How do you maintain roller shutters at home?
Depending on the material of the shutters, all you may need is a clean rag, or a damp one, so you can wipe dust and accumulated dirt from the shutters themselves. On the other hand, motorised external window shutters may need some electrical maintenance periodically. As long as you do not use jerky, tugging movement to operate the manual mechanism of most roller shutters, then you should get many years of using the same external shutters.
Do external roller shutters increase the value of your home?
Roller shutters are usually meant for a more minimalist approach. Because they are compact and easy to use, many roller shutters have become secondary window treatments or external window treatments.
When fully raised, roller shutters give an uninterrupted view of the surroundings. However, when the shutters go down, the interiors can become free from distractions which is important when you need to focus on work.
How do external roller shutters help save you money?
Since sunlight also carries heat with it, the proper combination of glass lamination and roller blinds can cut down on transferred heat from sunlight by a large margin. This can have a big impact on utility savings and overall comfort for the people in the room.
