Washington DC Cafe Shutters Offer Your Space A Unique Look

Café shutters (sometimes called half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and elegant looks of Washington DC plantation shutters on the bottom part of the frame, with open space above 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 complete shutter product in their own right, built to let in some light at all times, while at the same time giving you privacy. That makes them great fits 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 like your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, if you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a cozy café style, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can make use of natural light, stylish plantation shutters, and your imagination.

You might think, “Should I just install regular shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer here, since every home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your windows

But if you 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

Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a standard set of plantation shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters are split in half, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and the other way around.

A divider rail means that you can have all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. 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 barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it.
