Can Plantation Shutters Be Installed as Café Style Shutters in Orlando?

A half shutter delivers privacy on the lower half of the window and lets the top remain open to let in light. But, with the large louvers of plantation shutters, is it the right look for your windows?

The café or half-shutter look can work well with plantation shutters if it’s designed the right way. That’s why having a divider rail is so important for café shutters in Orlando, FL.

The Divider Rail Solution

A divider rail provides your plantation shutters with a fully finished, complete feel on the window. At the same time, it allows you to close the bottom louvers for your privacy and adjust the top ones for light. Adjusting the top louvers comes in handy at daytime when the sunlight is preventing you from watching TV. A 3.5” or 4.5” inch louver is barely noticeable when laying flat, offering you a lot of space to see outside. Now, you won’t have to worry about losing any of your view.

Cafe Style Shutters with Divider Rail

In the end, it’s a style choice – whether you desire the look of a half shutter or the look of a plantation shutter with a divider rail.

How Are Café Style Shutters Designed?

The first thing we do is measure the dimensions of your window, recording where it’s best to stop the shutters – to give that café appearance. We then go back to our store and order your hand-crafted plantation shutters according to those dimensions – and note whether your shutters have a divider rail. Using a combination of state-of-the-art computer technology and unique templates based on your windows, we manufacture the café style plantation shutters – and add on the colors and finishes of your choosing.

Our professional installers will then mount the café shutters on your windows. They’ll double check that the louvers can be opened and the divider rail – if included – is mobile.
