Café shutters (also known as half-height shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and classic looks of Orlando plantation shutters on the bottom half of the frame, with open space up top to let light pour in.
But Why Café Shutters?
Café shutters aren’t just one half of a set of shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in a certain amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. That means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light such as the dining room, living room, or the kitchen.
Café shutters can easily pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Match natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that cozy café style, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of bright and beautiful drapes for a more modern look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, stylish plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.
You might be wondering, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer to this question, as each home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the perfect fit for your home
But if you want the benefits of both cafe shutters and full shutters. That’s where divider rail shutters come in.
Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds
Divider rail shutters the full frame of a standard set of window shutters, with one caveat. With most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and so forth.
A divider rail means that you get all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you that same café shutter look if and when you need it.
