Atlanta Café Shutters Give Your Space A Unique Look

Café shutters (also called half-height shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and classic looks of Atlanta plantation shutters on the lower half of the frame, with open space on the top half to let light pour in.

The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters

Café shutters aren’t just one half of a set of shutters, though. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters all their own, designed to let in an amount of light at all times, yet still maintaining your privacy. That means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your space. They also work perfectly in rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light such as your dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, if you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Match natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a classic café aesthetic, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of bright and beautiful drapes for a more modern look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your own creativity.

You might think, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, because every home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the best fit for your home

But some homeowners want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café style shutters. That’s where divider rail shutters come in.


Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds

Divider rail shutters the full frame of a normal set of indoor shutters, with one caveat. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, meaning that you can move the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and the other way around.

With a divider rail you get all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if and when you need it.
