Boston Café Shutters Give Your Home Distinct Style Café shutters (also called half shutters) can completely change the look of your kitchen, dining space, or breakfast nook. Café shutters put the stylish louvers and classic looks of Boston plantation shutters on the lower part of your window, with open space on the top half to let light pour in. But Why Café Shutters? Café shutters aren’t just a half set of shutters, however. They’re a whole window treatment in their own right, designed to let in some light at all times, while at the same time giving you privacy. This makes them awesome partners for tall or high-wall windows in your home. They also work perfectly in rooms that you want natural light to shine in such as your kitchen or dining room. Café shutters can easily pair with just about any other window treatment, in case you’d prefer the top half of your window to be covered. Pair natural wood café shutters with neutral valance for a classic café mood, or install white Polywood cafe shutters with some solid drapes for a more modern look. There are many possibilities when you can combine natural light, stylish plantation shutters, and your imagination. You might think, “Should I just install a full set of shutters on my window?” There’s not really a right or wrong answer here, because each home is different.
