"I have just had shutter blinds installed by Thomas Sanderson. The service from this company was exemplary from the initial sales consultation to installation. Everyone involved was polite, informative, patiently answered our many questions and reassuring. I am really really pleased with the result. I will be placing another order for more shutters, this time in my dining room. We have had many people commenting on how good they look. Need I say more."

Any room where you need a combination of maximum light from higher up the window and privacy lower is the ideal choice for Café style shutters. If your room is overlooked Café style shutters, or half window shutters as they're sometimes called, are a great way of keeping prying eyes out without having to sacrifice any light. Ideal too for bathrooms, especially if the bath is directly under a window, or dressing rooms, especially first floor bedrooms. From a style point of view they also look really lovely in bay windows, especially if there's a window seat.
Like all shutters, it depends on the size of the window, and whether you choose hard wood shutters, faux wood shutters or Vinyl shutters, as they each have different sizing specifications. Café style shutters can open out just as other shutters do, but you can choose to keep them against the window and merely open the louvres for additional light. They're an ideal choice if you have limited height clearance near the top half of the window as you only need clearance space for the bottom half, rather than the entire window.
Again it depends on the window itself, the shutter material and also the configuration of the shutter in question. Our design consultants can explain all these details in relation to your window and your choice of shutter styles during your in-home appointment. Café style shutters are sometimes referred to as half height shutters for the simple reason that they are usually half the height of your window, and cover the lower portion of your window space. Depending on the details of your window, Café style shutters can be mounted inside or outside of the window frames and like any other plantation shutters you can tilt the louvres to suit.
