Café-style Shutter Installation

Cafe-style shutters are the most on-trend shutter type today. Where privacy is paramount then café-style plantation shutters provide the ideal solution. But they are not just great for privacy, they are chic and stylish too.

Shutters are placed over the lower half of the window with the upper half remaining un-shuttered. This allows for maximum light at all times whilst providing controlled privacy.

Typically used for ground level windows, particularly town houses that are situated close to street level but they are also suitable for bathrooms as an alternative to frosted glass.

    What are café-style shutters?

    Cafe-style is a style of shutter that covers only the bottom part of a window opening. The idea is to allow in the maximum amount of light, whilst retaining privacy for those inside who might be sitting or standing by the window.

    They are of course made famous by the cafes of France where customers can luxuriate in bright sunlight whilst still getting shade and privacy.

    My windows are small? Is cafe-style suitable?

    The answer to this question is almost certainly YES. This style of shutter is perfect for all sizes of windows whether large or small. At ShutterWise we provide custom-made shutters which are made-to-measure and can be applied to surprisingly small window openings.

    Do you do shutters in other colours than white?

    Yes, our shutters are available in a range of colours, not just white. Take a look at our colours and styles page for more inspiration.

    Can you install café-style shutters in kitchens?

    Yes – many of our customers love having café-style shutters in their kitchens. Again, it’s the perfect solution for both privacy and light flexibility.

    Can you install café-style shutters in bathrooms?

    It’s sometimes assumed that shutters in bathrooms don’t mix because of the high moisture levels in the atmosphere in bathrooms and shower rooms. But at ShutterWise we have a range of hard-wearing, waterproof and moisture-resistant shutters that work perfectly in the bathroom.

    Many customers find that café-style shutters in the bathroom is a great alternative to greying-out or tinting the bottom half of their bathroom windows.

    What are plantation shutters?

    Plantation shutters is another name for the shutters typically seen covering windows in modern homes throughout the UK. Originating in the plantations of Southern America, their popularity has soared because of their brilliant benefits in terms of flexibility, reliability and hard-wearing qualities.
