Cafe style shutters only partially cover your window, typically the bottom. This style is perfect for street facing rooms to prevent passerby’s peering in; it creates privacy at the lower level however allows light to flood through the top. This style creates a continental ambiance working well in kitchens and street level rooms.
Cafe style shutters can be made to any desired height, this would normally follow a structural break in your window. They are the ideal solution for privacy without having to cover your whole window.
