  • Stop prying eyes...

    Designed to cover the bottom half of your window only, Cafe style shutters are a great choice for privacy control and ideal if you have windows that look directly onto pavements or public walkways.

  • Elegant design heritage

    The elegant design of the cafe shutter originates from the famous chic looks created in French coffee bars and boutique restaurants – and are now fashionably used to add style and practicality to UK windows.

  • Add character to your windows

    Cafe shutters are an attractive addition to windows of period properties, enhancing sash window casements or designs – but you can also recreate this character appearance in more modern windows too.

  • All the right angles

    Most windows and walls are rarely straight and true – yet our unique fitting technique means that your shutters will be installed with a flush and precise fit, disguising any imperfections and creating a first-class finish.

  • Built to last

    Our research has shown that you could alter the position of your louvres over 1000 times a year, so Thomas Sanderson’s operating mechanisms have been specially developed to ensure they are built to last.

  • Child Safe Window Styling’s

    With no dangling or loose operational cords, shutters are the safest window treatment available if you have children, grand children or small pets to consider.

The beauty of café shutters is that only the lower half of the window is covered so you don’t have to close off the entire window and can still enjoy the view.

Café syle shutters are another great choice for privacy control, and are perfect if you have windows or doors that look directly on to pavements - and when it comes to styling, café shutters are a particularly attractive addition to period properties.
