Honolulu 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, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and elegant looks of Honolulu plantation shutters on the bottom part of your window, with open space up top to let light pour in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters are more than just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, built to let in an amount of light at all times, while at the same time giving you privacy. That makes them perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your home. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that you want natural light to shine in such as your living room or kitchen and dining room.

Café shutters can pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a cozy café style, or pair white faux wood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a more up to date look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your own creativity.

You might be wondering, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, since every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the perfect fit for your windows

But if you want the benefits of both cafe shutters and full shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.

 

Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds

Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a regular set of indoor 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 bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and the other way around.

A divider rail means that you can have all the advantages of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it.
