Café shutters (also called half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and classic looks of Las Vegas plantation shutters on the lower part of the frame, with open space up top to allow light in.
The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters
Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in an amount of light at all times, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your space. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that can make beautiful use of natural light such as your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.
Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, if you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that classic café mood, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a more up to date look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.
You might think, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, because every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the best fit for your home
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 regular set of interior 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 moving halves, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without moving the bottom, and the other way around.
With a divider rail you basically have all the benefits 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 and when you need it.
