When furnishing our four walls, we have to remember that every room should not only be beautiful but also functional. This is not easy to achieve when you definitely want a few extra square feet in your home. How can you save valuable space? With just a few clever tricks, you can significantly increase the functionality of a room. Furniture roller shutters are one of them. Manufacturers such as Rehau, Ostermann and Häfele offer various models that enable you to adapt the roller shutter systems perfectly to a specific room and to meet different needs.

Tailor-made solution for modern furniture

Furniture roller shutters are installed instead of conventional cabinet doors or drawers and save a lot of space in the room. In contrast to normal cabinet doors, they can be opened vertically or horizontally and do not protrude into the room. They are therefore ideally suited where there is little space in terms of width and there is no space to open a standard wing door. The roller shutter systems make optimal use of the available space in terms of height and offer maximum storage space. Furniture roller shutters are a good choice for all types of interiors: for living rooms as well as for offices, but also for workshops, garages, closets, mobile homes or yachts.

Where do furniture roller shutters work best??

Roller shutter systems are a great way to keep various devices in small rooms or in hard-to-reach places. They are also suitable wherever you want to hide various everyday objects behind doors so that the room always looks tidy.

Roller shutter systems are an ideal solution for the kitchen. There we often store a large number of pots, pans and other utensils that we do not want to leave unused on the worktop. Furniture roller shutters help to eliminate the optical chaos in the kitchen and to better organize the kitchen cabinets. L-shaped or U-shaped kitchens in particular, where dead corners are usually difficult to use, benefit from this ingenious storage space idea.

The roller shutter systems can be installed on all kitchen cabinets or in hard-to-reach places – e.g. in a corner of the kitchen, above the worktop or in narrow spaces next to the refrigerator or stove.

Larger models can be used anywhere you want to cover a large area. For example, if a room-high niche is to be used as a pantry or broom cupboard.

Smaller roller shutter systems are a good storage space idea for items and devices that we like to hide behind doors in the kitchen, but also always want to have close at hand, such as a coffee machine, a bread box or a microwave. As soon as you no longer use the devices, you can simply close the roller shutters. This way the kitchen will always look tidy!

An open living area can fulfill different functions

The closet shutters can be selected according to the style of a particular room. White or metallic shades of roller blinds are best for industrial or modern style spaces, while wood-effect roller blinds are perfect for rustic, country house or boho styles. Roller blinds in matt black are a real statement and also go well with black fittings in the kitchen. The appearance of the furniture shutters can also be customized to match the color of the walls, furniture or the rest of the facility.
