Sacramento Café Shutters Give Your Home A Unique Look

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 part of the frame, with open space on the top part to allow light in.

But Why 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 an amount of light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. That means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your house. They also work perfectly in rooms that could use more natural light like your kitchen or dining room.

Café shutters are able to pair with a variety of 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 pair white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of solid 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 may ask yourself, “Would I just be better off installing standard 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 regular set of indoor 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, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without moving the bottom, and so forth.

With divider rail shutters 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.
