Café shutters (also known as half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and vintage looks of Destin plantation shutters on the lower half of windows, with open space up top to let light pour in.
The Reason for Destin Café Shutters
Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a complete shutter product all their own, built to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. That makes them perfect 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 kitchen or dining room.
Café shutters can pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a cozy café style, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a more modern look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.
You might be wondering, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, since each home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the best fit for your windows
But if you want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café 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
With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a standard set of interior shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, so you can move the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and vice-versa.
With a divider rail you can have all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it.
