*Please note: for many years there has been some concern about safety hazards with corded window treatments such as home blinds. Most of these issues come about from a broken equalizer on the blinds, which leads many people to simply tie the cords to maintain functionality, but in the process that creates a hazard. To help prevent this, we have a video that shows how to easily repair your blinds' equalizer yourself to help you avoid that situation.

Cafe Shutters, Woven Woods, Motorized Nantucket Shades

JOB OF THE WEEK: May 18, 2017

See your home in a new light!

Watch as we transform rooms in this lovely traditional-style home.

We start with the dining room where cafe shutters provide privacy while maintaining a great view to the outside. Next, woven woods by a kitchen table are a fine way to keep the sun at bay when needed, and the same goes for the wovens in the kitchen overlooking a sunroom. At the top of a stairwell, cafe shutters let just the right amount of light in.

For the living room and master bedroom, we went with motorized Nantucket shades from Hunter Douglas, utilizing their PowerView technology. With these automated window shades, the shades can be set to open and close at predetermined times, as well as automatically anytime via the included remote control for a perfect combo of convenience and elegance!

Why Buy Cafe Shutters?

What are cafe shutters and why should I choose them over traditional or plantation shutters?

What are Cafe Shutters?

Cafe shutters get their name from their popularity in restaurants and cafes, particularly in France, where they protected the privacy of the patrons while still allowing much of the outside sun and scenery in.

As you can see in the pictures from a recent job of ours that are included in this article, cafe shutters for windows cover just the bottom portion of each window, yet retain the look and feel of classic shutters, including having options for louver sizes and a choice of a front tilt bar or a hidden tilt bar for opening and closing the louvers.


Before and after photos of cafe shutters with front tilt bars.


Benefits of Cafe Shutters

Because they don't cover the full window, you have a great balance of light and privacy in rooms where the windows are fitted with cafe shutters. This balance is great for kitchens and bathrooms, as well as any other room where you don't feel the need for full window coverings.

In addition to the abundance of light you can allow in, you're also maintaining the nice view your window affords.

Cafe shutters are also very versatile in that they can be teamed with other window treatments such as curtains and even Honeycomb or Roman shades for a stylish and luxurious look.

Less expensive than plantation shutters, cafe shutters still provide the great look of those popular window coverings but with a more "open" look.

Where to Buy Cafe Shutters

We offer a wide range of cafe shutters from some of the most respected brands in the business, and we custom measure & install every shutter for the perfect fit and look. Give us a call at (732) 223-6662 with any questions you have, and to find out the great options you have for cafe shutters in your home!
