Can Plantation Shutters Be Installed as Café Style Shutters in Phoenix? A half shutter delivers privacy on the bottom of the window and the top is open to let in light. Yet, with plantation shutters' large louvers, is it the ideal shutter for your windows? The café or half-shutter look can work well with plantation shutters if it’s designed correctly. That’s why we offer a divider rail for café shutters in Phoenix, AZ. The Divider Rail Solution A divider rail offers your plantation shutters a finished feel on the window. It also allows you to tilt closed the bottom louvers for your privacy and open the top ones so light can stream in. Adjusting the top louvers is helpful during the day when the sunlight is interfering with you watching TV. And a 3.5” or 4.5” louver is hardly noticed when opened flat, offering you plenty of space to see outside. Now, you won’t be afraid of losing your view. In the end, it’s a choice about style – whether you desire the look of a half shutter or that of a plantation shutter with a divider rail. How Are Café Style Shutters Crafted? We begin by measuring the width and length of your window, noting where we should stop the shutters – to give that café look. We then go to our shop and order your hand-crafted plantation shutters to fit those dimensions – and note whether your shutters have a divider rail. Using a combination of advanced computer technology and custom templates based on your window’s dimension, we manufacture your plantation shutters in the café style – and add the colors and finishes you chose. Our expert installers will mount the café shutters on your windows. They’ll ensure the louvers will open and the divider rail – if ordered – is operational.
