Café-style shutters are a very popular choice for homeowners but which windows or rooms are they best suited?
Even with such a flexible shutter design, it can be hard to know if Café Shutters are right for your windows, style, and needs.
Here are some key factors that we hope will help you work through what might be best for you.
What are Café Shutters?
Café shutters are roughly half the height of full-size shutters and only cover the bottom half of your window. The top half of the window remains clear and open to taking advantage of the natural light.
Not just practical but super stylish too with a sophisticated look and distinctly continental feel. Café shutters work brilliantly in every space but particularly in living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
This versatile design and quality of Luxaflex® made to measure café shutters are a great choice for rooms that require privacy over maximum light reduction
How do Café Shutters address my privacy issues?
Keep your room bright and light whilst still preserving your privacy is something we all value, and that is one of the top reasons to choose café style shutters.
If you have a street-facing room where passers-by can look in or you are overlooked by neighbours, café shutters give you the best of both works – flexible light control and privacy in one.
The unique half shutter-style means you can control how much of your window you want to be covered and how much light your want in the space.
Are Café Shutters suitable for bathrooms?
For bathrooms, café-style shutters are a popular choice as you want to ensure privacy from the outside world but also need light and ventilation.
Built to last our shutters are ideal for bathrooms that have a lot of humidity.
The solid design of Luxaflex® Polyresin shutters reduces the risk of warpage, cracking, fading, chipping, peeling, or discolouring. Plus they are easy to clean with soap and water with stainless-steel hinges that won’t rust.
Why are Café Shutters a good choice?
Our custom-made shutters mean you can choose how much of your window your café shutters cover will cover. As your light and privacy needs may differ from room to room, you can choose the same great style but customise it to your exact needs.
