San Jose Café Shutters Offer Your Home Stunning Looks Café shutters (also known as half-height shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the beautiful louvers and elegant looks of San Jose plantation shutters on the bottom half of windows, with open space up top to allow light 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, built to let in a certain amount of light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This makes them great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your house. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in like the kitchen or dining room. Café shutters can pair with a variety of 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 that classic café aesthetic, or put white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a more modern look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, stylish plantation shutters, and your own sense of style. You may ask yourself, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer here, since each home is unique.

For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters. Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a normal set of indoor shutters, but with an added bonus. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two moving halves, so you can move the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and vice-versa. 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 the look of cafe shutters if and when you need it. Get Café Shutters in San Jose Today!
