Can Plantation Shutters Be Installed as Café Style Shutters in Las Vegas? A half shutter delivers privacy on the bottom of the window and leaves the top open to let in light and see the view. However, with plantation shutters' large louvers, is it the ideal shutter for your windows? The café or half-shutter look can work well with a plantation shutter’s large louvers if it’s designed correctly. That’s why having a divider rail is so important for café shutters in Las Vegas, NV. The Divider Rail Solution A divider rail gives your plantation shutters a completed, fully finished feel on the window. In addition, it lets you shut the bottom louvers for needed privacy and open the top ones so light can stream in. Adjusting the top louvers is convenient in the daytime when the light is preventing you from watching TV. And a 3.5” or 4.5” louver is barely noticeable when laying flat, providing you plenty of space to look out of. Now, you won’t worry about giving up your view. When it comes down to it, it’s a choice about style – whether you like the style of a half shutter or that of a full plantation shutter with a divider rail. How Are Café Style Shutters Designed?
