Café shutters (sometimes called half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and elegant looks of Raleigh plantation shutters on the lower part of your window, with open space up top to let light pour in.
But Why Café Shutters?
Café shutters aren’t just a half set of 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 space. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that can make beautiful use of natural light like your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.
Café shutters can easily pair with a variety of 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 own sense of style.
You might think, “Should I just install 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 the benefits of both cafe shutters and full shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.
Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds
Divider rail shutters the full frame of a standard set of window shutters, but with an added bonus. 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 so forth.
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, temperature and light control. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it.
