San Diego Café Shutters Give Your Home Stunning Looks Café shutters (also known as half-height or half shutters) can totally change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or in-home bar. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and vintage looks of San Diego plantation shutters on the bottom half of the frame, with open space above to let light pour in. The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a complete shutter product in their own right, designed to let in an amount of light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This means they’re perfect for tall or high-wall windows in your home. Cafe shutters are also great for rooms that could use more natural light such as the dining room, living room, or the kitchen. Café shutters can pair with a variety of other window treatments, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a cozy café feel, or pair white Polywood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a modern and elegant look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, beautiful plantation shutters, and your personal home fashion sense. You may wonder, “But wouldn’t I just be better off installing a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, as each home is different.

With divider rail shutters you basically have all the advantages of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can fully close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters if you ever want it. Get Café Shutters in San Diego Today!
