Café shutters (also called half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and elegant looks of Charlotte plantation shutters on the bottom part of the frame, with open space on the top half to allow light in.
The Reason for Charlotte Café Shutters
Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters all their own, designed to let in some light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. That makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in such as the living room or kitchen and dining room.
Café shutters are able to pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a classic café mood, or install white faux wood cafe shutters with some bright and beautiful drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.
You might think, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, since each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your windows
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 Give You The Best of Both Worlds
Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a standard set of plantation shutters, but with an added bonus. With most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two moving halves, so you can move the bottom half of your louvers without adjusting the top, and so forth.
With a divider rail you get all the advantages of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if and when you need it.
