Southern California Café Shutters Give Your Space Stunning Looks

Café shutters (sometimes called half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and elegant looks of Southern California plantation shutters on the lower part of windows, with open space on the top half to let light pour in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, though. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in a certain amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This means they’re great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your house. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in such as the kitchen or dining room.

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 a cozy café aesthetic, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of solid drapes for a more modern look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You may wonder, “Would I just be better off installing a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right or wrong answer to this question, since every home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the perfect fit for your windows

But if you want the best of both full plantation shutters and cafe style shutters. For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters.


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. With most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two moving halves, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and vice-versa.

With a divider rail you can have all the benefits of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it.
