Raleigh Café Shutters Give Your Room A Unique Look

Café shutters (sometimes called half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and vintage looks of Raleigh plantation shutters on the lower part of windows, with open space above that lets light come in.

The Reason for Raleigh Café Shutters

Café shutters aren’t just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, though. They’re a complete shutter product all their own, designed to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that you want natural light to shine in like your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters are able to pair with several other window treatments, if you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a cozy café aesthetic, or match white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a more up to date look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You might think, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, because every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the best 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

Divider rail shutters the full frame of a standard set of window shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters are split in half, so you can tilt the bottom half of your louvers without changing the top, and the other way around.

A divider rail means that you basically 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, warmth and better lighting. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it.
