Minneapolis Café Shutters Offer Your Room Stunning Looks Café shutters (also known as half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and vintage looks of Minneapolis plantation shutters on the bottom part of windows, with open space above to allow light in. The Reason for Minneapolis Café Shutters Café shutters are more than just one half of a set of shutters, though. They’re a set of fully-functioning shutters in their own right, designed to let in some light all the time, yet still maintaining your privacy. That makes them great fits for tall or high-wall windows in your house. Another fantastic spot for cafe shutters is in any room that you want natural light to shine in like the living room or kitchen and dining room. Café shutters can pair with several other window treatments, in case you’d want to occasionally cover the top half. Pair natural wood café shutters with an earth-toned valance for a cozy café style, or match white Polywood 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, beautiful plantation shutters, and your imagination. You might think, “Should I just install standard shutters on my window?” There’s no right answer to this question, as each home is unique.

That’s where divider rail shutters come in. Divider Rail Shutters Give You The Best of Both Worlds With divider rail plantation shutters you get the full frame of a regular set of plantation shutters, with an extra feature. On most shutters, all of the louvers move together from top to bottom. Plantation shutters with a divider rail have two halves that move separately, so you can adjust the bottom half of your louvers without moving the top, and vice-versa. A divider rail means that you get all the advantages of café shutters, without having one half of your window bare. You can completely close your shutters for privacy, warmth and better lighting. 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 Minneapolis Today!
