Virginia Beach Cafe Shutters Give Your Room Stunning Looks

Café shutters (also called half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and vintage looks of Virginia Beach plantation shutters on the bottom part of the frame, with open space up top that lets light come in.

The Reason for Virginia Beach Café Shutters

Café shutters are more than just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in an amount of light at all times, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This means they’re awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your home. They also work perfectly in rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like your living room or kitchen and dining room.

Café shutters can pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Match natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that cozy café mood, or put white faux wood 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 personal home fashion sense.

You may ask yourself, “Would I just be better off installing regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, as every home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the perfect fit for your windows

But some homeowners want to bridge the gap between full plantation shutters and café style shutters. If that’s the case, you want plantation shutters with a divider rail.


Divider Rail Shutters – The Best of Both Worlds

Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a regular set of interior shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, each louver will adjust together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two moving halves, meaning that you can adjust the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and vice-versa.

A divider rail means that you get all the advantages of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you tilt the top louvers horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it.
