Phoenix Café Shutters Offer Your Home Distinct Style Café shutters (also known as half-height shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and vintage looks of Phoenix plantation shutters on the lower half of the frame, with open space on the top half that lets light come in. But Why Café Shutters? Café shutters are more than just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment all their own, designed to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. This makes them great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your house. They also work perfectly in rooms that can make beautiful use of natural light like the dining room, living room, or the kitchen. Café shutters can pair with just about any other window treatment, if you’d rather not keep the top of your window frame bare. Match natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that classic café style, or put white Polywood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a more modern look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your imagination. You might be wondering, “Should I just install regular shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer here, since every home is different.

That’s where divider rail shutters come in. Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds Plantation shutters with a divider rail have the full frame of a normal set of interior shutters, but with an added bonus. With most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, meaning that you can move the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and so forth. 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 adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you that same café shutter look if you ever want it. Get Café Shutters in Phoenix Today!
