Café Shutters in Raleigh, NC

What Are Cafe Shutters?

Southern Accent Shutters and Blinds proudly offers café shutters in Raleigh, NC. Also referred to as “half shutters”, or “half-height shutters,” cafe style shutters typically cover the lower half of a double hung window and are a great option if you value privacy but still want to enjoy incoming sunlight.

The name “café shutters” originally evolved from café curtains, which are known for being drawn along the lower section of a window. These shutters stylishly prevent unwanted guests from peeking into your home, and it can also serve to block out other unwanted views, such as street signs, parking areas, and more.

Great For Privacy

Café shutters are an excellent choice if you are more concerned with privacy. This shutter style allows the bottom of your window to be covered and closed via the shutter, while the open top still allows for visibility and light admittance.

Different Style of Cafe Shutters

Café style shutters can create a cozy cottage look by selecting a smaller louver. You can also create a more modern or contemporary feel with a larger louver. Either way, café shutters still set the mood and allow plenty of light into your rooms.

They are child and pet friendly because they are designed without dangling cords.

They can be combined with other window treatments, such as valances to help create an even more customized look/feel.
