Oklahoma City Café Shutters Offer Your Room Distinct Style

Café shutters (sometimes known as half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and elegant looks of Oklahoma City plantation shutters on the lower half of your window, with open space up top to let light pour in.

But Why Café Shutters?

Café shutters aren’t just the bottom half of a set of plantation shutters, though. They’re a complete shutter product in their own right, designed to let in some light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. That makes them great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your home. They also work perfectly in rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light such as the dining room, living room, or the kitchen.

Café shutters can easily pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case 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 some brightly-colored drapes for a more modern look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense.

You may ask yourself, “Should I just install regular shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, as each home is unique. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for help choosing the perfect fit for your home

But if you 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 Offer The Best of Both Worlds

Divider rail shutters the full frame of a regular set of interior shutters, with one caveat. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail are split in half, 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 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 if and when you need it.
