Hartford Café Shutters Offer Your Room Stunning Looks

Café shutters (sometimes called half-height shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and classic looks of Hartford plantation shutters on the bottom half of the frame, with open space above to allow light in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters are more than just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, however. They’re a complete shutter product in their own right, built to let in a certain amount of light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. That means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in like the kitchen or dining room.

Café shutters are able to pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for that cozy café mood, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with some bright and beautiful 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, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, as every home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your windows

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


Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds

With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a standard set of window shutters, but with an added bonus. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two moving halves, so you can move the top half of your louvers without adjusting the bottom, and the other way around.

With a divider rail you can have all the benefits of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can fully 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 and when you need it.
