Nashville Café Shutters Give Your Space Distinct Style

Café shutters (sometimes called half-height or half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and classic looks of Nashville plantation shutters on the bottom half of windows, with open space up top to let light pour in.

The Reason for Nashville Café Shutters

Café shutters are more than just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a whole window treatment all their own, designed to let in a certain amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like your kitchen or dining room.

Café shutters can pair with several other window treatments, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a cozy café style, or match white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.

You might think, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer here, as each home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the best fit for your windows

But some homeowners 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 regular set of window shutters, with one caveat. With most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two moving halves, meaning that you can tilt the top half of your louvers without adjusting the bottom, and so forth.

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 almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if and when you need it.
