Café shutters (also called half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and classic looks of Fort Myers plantation shutters on the lower part of your window, with open space up top to let light pour in.
The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters
Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in some light at all times, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that could use more natural light such as your living room or kitchen and dining room.
Café shutters are able to pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that cozy café style, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.
You might think, “Would I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, since each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the best fit for your windows
But if you want the best of both full plantation shutters and cafe style shutters. For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters.
Divider Rail Shutters Give You The Best of Both Worlds
With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a regular set of indoor shutters, but with an added bonus. On most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, so you can move the top half of your louvers without moving the bottom, and so forth.
With a divider rail you basically have all the benefits of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it.
