CAFE STYLE SHUTTERS
Inspired by the chic window dressing seen in traditional French cafes, cafe style shutters cover only the bottom half of your window allowing unfiltered light to flood your room, whilst maintaining privacy.
What Are Cafe Style Shutters?
Cafe, or half height, shutters are a stylish addition to many of our customers homes where light is priority, but an element of privacy is still required. Open and close the panels and operate the louvres as you would our full height shutters to suit your needs throughout the day.
Although typically measured to the halfway point of your window, which makes them the perfect shutter style for sash windows, the height of our cafe shutters are measured completely bespoke to your windows. Bay windows are a great example of this where shutters can be measured up till the fanlight break, giving almost full privacy but allowing unobstructed light to filter through.
Aesthetically, cafe style shutters are one of our most stylish solutions and can really add the finishing touches to more traditional properties such as Victorian or Edwardian homes, although they are suitable for any property type!
Cafe style shutters also make a great partner with curtains, particularly for bedrooms where a certain level of darkness is required at night and some privacy during the day. This also enables you to create a window styling combination completely bespoke to you and a real centrepiece to the room. Discover our range of fabrics for our handmade curtains here.
