Café shutters (also known as half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and elegant looks of Denver plantation shutters on the bottom part of windows, with open space above to allow light in.
The Reason for Denver Café Shutters
Café shutters are more than just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in an amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your home. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like the dining room, living room, or the kitchen.
Café shutters can easily pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that classic café aesthetic, or put white faux wood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can make use of natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your imagination.
You may wonder, “Would I just be better off installing standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, as 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. That’s where divider rail shutters come in.
Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds
Divider rail shutters the full frame of a standard set of indoor shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and so forth.
With divider rail shutters you basically have all the benefits of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if and when you need it.
