Less shutter certainly doesn’t mean a lesser shutter and our day 11 Café style shutters are a perfect example of this!
Café style refers to any shutters that extend part way up the window but do not cover the entire height. Sitting in a 3-sided frame, panels are supported on the sides and at the bottom. There can be a common misconception that café shutters only extend halfway up a window, but café shutters can be made to any height that best suits the window and in line with the look trying to be achieved.
Café shutters are particularly popular in kitchens in living rooms because commonly in these rooms full light blockage is not required. Being able to part cover the window at the bottom gives privacy in the room whilst having the top of the window fully exposed allows plenty of natural light to shine through into the room. This quality makes café style a great choice for all communal areas and also makes them a common choice for commercial spaces.
Only extending part way up the window can make it seem as though there are some limitations on café style shutters but there are still plenty of options available. Clients can choose whether to have a tilt rod or not and also make the selection of having hidden breaks in the slats allowing different sections to be moved separately.
