Detroit Café Shutters Offer Your Space Distinct Style Café shutters (also called half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and vintage looks of Detroit plantation shutters on the bottom part of windows, with open space above that lets light come in. But Why Café Shutters? Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a whole window treatment all their own, built to let in an amount of light all the time, while at the same time giving you privacy. That makes them perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that you want natural light to shine in like the living room or kitchen and dining room. Café shutters can easily pair with a variety of other window treatments, if you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a classic café aesthetic, or match white faux wood cafe shutters with a set of brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, interior plantation shutters, and your own sense of style. You may wonder, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right answer here, since each home is different.

For that, you need divider rail plantation shutters. Divider Rail Shutters Offer The Best of Both Worlds Divider rail shutters the full frame of a normal set of interior shutters, with one caveat. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters are split in half, so you can adjust the top half of your louvers without changing the bottom, and the other way around. A divider rail means that you can have all the advantages of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, and to keep your home more comfortable. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you that same café shutter look if and when you need it. Get Café Shutters in Detroit Today!
