Can Plantation Shutters Be Installed as Café Style Shutters in Jacksonville?

A half shutter gives you privacy on the bottom of the window and lets the top remain open to let in light. But, with the large louvers of plantation shutters, is it the best shutter for your windows?

The café or half-shutter look can work well with a plantation shutter’s large louvers if it’s designed correctly. That’s where the divider rail comes in for café shutters in Jacksonville, FL.

The Divider Rail Solution

A divider rail gives your plantation shutters a completed, fully finished feel on the window. At the same time, it allows you to shut the bottom louvers for privacy and tilt open the top ones so light can stream in. Adjusting the top louvers comes in handy at daytime when the sunlight is stopping you from watching TV. And a 3.5” or 4.5” louver will almost disappear when it’s opened flat, offering you a lot of space to see outside. You won’t worry about losing any of your view.

Cafe Style Shutters with Divider Rail

Ultimately, it’s a style choice – whether you like the construction of a half shutter or the look of a full plantation shutter with a divider rail.

How Are Café Style Shutters Crafted?

We begin by measuring the length and width of your window, marking where it’s best to stop the shutters – to give that café appearance. Next, we return to our shop and order your hand-fashioned plantation shutters to fit those specifications – and note whether a divider rail is included or not. Utilizing a combination of advanced computer technology and custom design templates based on your window’s dimension, we construct the café style plantation shutters – and apply the final colors and finishings you picked.

Our expert installers will mount the café shutters on your windows. They’ll double check that the louvers can be opened and the divider rail – if ordered – is operational.
