Café shutters (also called half-height shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and elegant looks of Kingsport plantation shutters on the bottom part of your window, with open space on the top part that lets light come in.
The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters
Café shutters aren’t just one half of a set of shutters, though. They’re a complete shutter product all their own, built to let in a certain amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. That means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like the living room or kitchen and dining room.
Café shutters can easily pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that cozy café mood, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can make use of natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.
You may ask yourself, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, since each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the perfect fit for your windows
But if you 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 plantation shutters, but with an added bonus. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, so you can tilt the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and vice-versa.
With a divider rail you can have all the benefits of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it.
