Café shutters (sometimes known as half-height or half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and vintage looks of Sacramento plantation shutters on the lower half of the frame, with open space above to allow light in.
The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters
Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in some light all the time, while at the same time giving you privacy. That means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that could use more natural light like your living room or kitchen and dining room.
Café shutters are able to pair with several other window treatments, if you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that classic café mood, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.
You might be wondering, “Would I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, because every 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. That’s where divider rail shutters come in.
Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds
Divider rail shutters the full frame of a normal set of interior shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without moving 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, temperature and light control. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if you ever want it.
