Café shutters (sometimes known as half-height shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and vintage looks of St. George plantation shutters on the lower part of your window, with open space up top to allow light in.
The Reason for St. George Café Shutters
Café shutters are more than just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, though. They’re a complete shutter product all their own, designed to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. That means they’re great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your space. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.
Café shutters can pair with a variety of other window treatments, if you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a classic café style, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your own creativity.
You may ask yourself, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer here, as 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 benefits of both cafe shutters and full shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.
Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds
Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a normal set of plantation shutters, but with an added bonus. With most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail are split in half, meaning that you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and vice-versa.
A divider rail means that you can 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.
