Tampa Café Shutters Give Your Space Distinct Style

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

The Reason for Tampa Café Shutters

Café shutters are more than just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, designed to let in a certain amount of light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your space. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that you want natural light to shine in like the living room or kitchen and dining room.

Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, in case you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a classic café mood, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, stylish plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You might be wondering, “Would I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer here, as each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for tips to choose the perfect fit for your windows

But if you want the benefits of both cafe shutters and full shutters. That’s where divider rail shutters come in.


Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds

Divider rail shutters the full frame of a standard set of indoor shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without changing the top, and so forth.

With a divider rail you basically have all the advantages of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you that same café shutter look if you ever want it.
