Fort Lauderdale Café Shutters Offer Your Room A Unique Look

Café shutters (sometimes known as half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and classic looks of Fort Lauderdale plantation shutters on the bottom part of windows, with open space up top to allow light in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a complete shutter product all their own, designed to let in some light all the time, while at the same time giving you privacy. That makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your home. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light such as your living room or kitchen and dining room.

Café shutters can pair with several other window treatments, in case you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a cozy café aesthetic, or pair white Polywood cafe shutters with some bright and beautiful drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.

You might think, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right or wrong answer to this question, as every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the best fit for your home

But some homeowners want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café style shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.


Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds

Divider rail shutters the full frame of a normal 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, meaning that you can move the bottom half of your louvers without changing the top, and vice-versa.

With divider rail shutters you basically have all the advantages of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if and when you need it.
