Boise Café Shutters Offer Your Room Stunning Looks

Café shutters (also known as half-height shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and elegant looks of Boise plantation shutters on the bottom part of the frame, with open space on the top part to let light pour in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a whole window treatment all their own, built to let in an amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your house. They also work perfectly in rooms that could use more natural light such as your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters are able to pair with several other window treatments, if you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that classic café feel, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of bright and beautiful drapes for a more modern look. The combinations are endless when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your own sense of style.

You may wonder, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, since each home is unique. 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. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.


Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds

Divider rail shutters 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. Plantation shutters with a divider rail are split in half, so you can tilt the top half of your louvers without adjusting the bottom, and vice-versa.

A divider rail means that you basically have all the benefits of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you that same café shutter look when you want it.
