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 stylish louvers and elegant looks of Salt Lake City plantation shutters on the bottom half of your window, with open space up top to let light pour in.
But Why Café Shutters?
Café shutters are more than just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in some light all the time, while at the same time giving you privacy. This makes them perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that could use more natural light like the kitchen or 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 neutral valance for a cozy café mood, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of solid drapes for a more up to date look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your own creativity.
You might be wondering, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer to this question, because every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your home
But some homeowners want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café style shutters. For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters.
Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds
With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a regular set of indoor shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two moving halves, meaning that you can move the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and so forth.
With divider rail shutters you can have all the benefits of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if and when you need it.
