Café Style refers to all shutters that don’t cover the entire height of the window; they are situated at the bottom half of the window and don’t go the whole way up. Sitting in a 3-sided frame, on either side of the shutters and the bottom of your window, these shutters are perfect for a window where you would like some additional privacy but without covering the entire window.
You can always rotate the slats to increase the light even further. When you fold the panels open, the framing allows for no evidence of framing to run across your windows. Café style is perfect for street facing communal rooms, they are the ideal solution to add some discretion when considering the room.
We would advise not to use café style in bedrooms and as the top half of the window is uncovered, with lots of light coming through.
Advantages of Café style:
- Half coverage on your windows
- Useful to Ground Floor Rooms
- 3-sided Framing
- Maximum light travels through
- Cheaper than full height shutters and they let in more light
- Provide privacy in urban areas.
Because they only cover the bottom half of a window, café-style shutters are a cost-effective solution. They create privacy at the lower level, while letting lots of lovely daylight flood in through the top. They have a stylish, continental feel that looks great in kitchens and living areas, and which can work well when layered with other types of window dressings, such as curtains and Roman blinds. Café style shutters are more a decorative feature than full height shutters as they provide less draught proofing than full height shutters.
