Café shutters (sometimes called half-height or half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and classic looks of New Brunswick plantation shutters on the lower part of your window, with open space above to let light pour in.
The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters
Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in an amount of light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. That means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that could use more natural light like the living room or kitchen and dining room.
Café shutters can easily pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that cozy café feel, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your own creativity.
You might be wondering, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer here, since every home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your windows
But some homeowners want the best of both full plantation shutters and cafe style shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.
Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds
With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a normal set of indoor shutters, with one caveat. With most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters are split in half, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and vice-versa.
With a divider rail you get all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it.
