San Antonio Café Shutters Offer Your Home Distinct Style Café shutters (also called half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and classic looks of San Antonio plantation shutters on the bottom part of your window, with open space above that lets light come in. But Why Café Shutters? Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a complete shutter product in their own right, built to let in a certain amount of light at all times, while at the same time giving you privacy. This makes them great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your home. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that you want natural light to shine in such as the dining room, living room, or the kitchen. Café shutters can easily pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a classic café aesthetic, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a more up to date look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your imagination. You might be wondering, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, since every 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 Give You The Best of Both Worlds Divider rail shutters the full frame of a normal set of indoor shutters, with one caveat. On most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without changing the top, and vice-versa. With divider rail shutters you get all the benefits of café shutters, but without leaving one half of the window permanently uncovered. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re almost invisible, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it. Get Café Shutters in San Antonio Today!
