Indianapolis Café Shutters Offer Your Room Stunning Looks Café shutters (sometimes known as half-height or half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, eating space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stunning louvers and classic looks of Indianapolis plantation shutters on the lower half of windows, with open space up top that lets light come in. The Beautiful Benefits of Café Shutters Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, though. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, built to let in some light all the time, but maintaining your privacy all the same. This means they’re great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your home. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in like the living room or kitchen and dining room. Café shutters can easily pair with several other window treatments, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Match natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for that cozy café aesthetic, or install white faux wood cafe shutters with some brightly-colored drapes for a more up to date look. The combinations are endless when you can make use of natural light, classic plantation shutters, and your own creativity. You might be wondering, “Would I just be better off installing standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, as each home is different. Ask your Sunburst Shutters sales rep for advice on choosing the best fit for your home But some homeowners want the best of both full plantation shutters and cafe style shutters. 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 window shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, the louvers shift together from top to bottom. Divider rail shutters have two halves that move separately, meaning that you can tilt the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and vice-versa. A divider rail means that you can have all the benefits of café shutters, with none of the drawbacks. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, temperature and light control. And when you adjust the louvers to lay horizontally, they’re barely noticeable, giving you the look of cafe shutters when you want it. Get Café Shutters in Indianapolis Today!
