Window roller shutters are a highly useful type of blind for your window that have many advantages over curtains or other forms of blinds and that are highly practical for a range of purposes. Here we’ll look at just what sets window roller shutters apart from other types of blind and window.
Window roller shutters as the name suggests use blinds on a roller that can be rolled up and down. The blinds themselves tend to be plastic and this brings advantages on its own. Firstly, as plastic is not porous you can rely on it to completely keep the light out helping your rooms to be darker when you draw the curtains. This in turn will mean you get a better night’s sleep and have more energy during the days, and will also mean that don’t need to worry about casting silhouettes etc which can sometimes be a problem if it’s dark outside and you have a bright light on in inside. Meanwhile, the plastic material also makes it waterproof and that means that you can actually have them on the outside of your windows. This then gives them a range of extra uses, including casting shade into the room during particularly bright or hot summer days. At the same time it also means that you can opt to use a combination of both the roller shutters and a normal curtain which will help you to get even more darkness in your room.
Whether you have the window roller shutters on the inside or outside of your room, the material will also mean that you can more easily clean it. Whereas curtains need to be machine washed preferably, window roller shutters can simply be washed down with a wet cloth. This again means that they can be kept outside, but also makes it far easier to keep them looking bright and clean making less work and ensuring that your room looks better more of the time. In terms of practicality this isn’t even looking at how simple and easy to operate window roller shutters are, and how by having this system you can avoid your curtains getting tangled, rumpled, torn or jammed.
The appearance of window roller shutters also has its benefits. While curtains come in all colors and patterns etc this is actually a problem a lot of the time as they can look garish and clash with things in your home. If you have a patterned carpet and choose curtains to match for example, this may mean that if you ever change your carpet then you’re likely to have to change your curtains too and vice versa. However with window roller shutters you have a simple plain plastic which is completely inoffensive and that can go with most decors (normally they will be white or beige). This then means that they won’t date and will always look clean, basic, simple and practical. Further, if you ever do design your room in such a way that a set of white window roller shutters won’t match, then you can always paint over them.
