Cleveland Café Shutters Offer Your Space A Unique Look

Café shutters (sometimes known as half-height or half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and elegant looks of Cleveland plantation shutters on the lower half of the frame, with open space on the top half to let light pour in.

The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters

Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment all their own, built to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your space. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that can make beautiful use of natural light such as the dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters can pair with just about any other window treatment, if you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that classic café style, or match white Polywood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You may wonder, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing standard shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer here, as each home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the best fit for your home

But some homeowners want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café 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 regular 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 moving halves, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without adjusting the top, and so forth.

A divider rail means that you can have all the benefits of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if you ever want it.
