Café Style Shutters
Experts in blinds and shutters
Any style for any room
Café shutters are a chic European style where only the bottom part of the window is covered, providing you with privacy from the street but leaving the top window uncovered for natural daylight and a view to the outside. This style is the perfect solution if your room is overlooked and for larger windows the shutters can be folded away when not in use.
Why choose café shutters?
Café-style shutters are a perfect solution that leaves light flooding in through the top half of your window while you make a design statement below. Not only are they a beautiful expression of taste and flair, but they’re also a smart and practical way to block out unwanted attention from the pavement outside. So, you can enjoy bright sunshine and total privacy all in one.
They’re ideal for living rooms and kitchens that face the street and for enhancing the authentic look of Victorian properties. That said, they fit perfectly with contemporary décor too and offer a huge amount of curb appeal to any home.

Frequently Asked Questions about Café Shutters
What are café style shutters?
Café shutters are a popular style of window covering that originated from the traditional café culture in Europe. These shutters cover only the lower portion of the window while leaving the top section uncovered.

How are café shutters different from other types of shutters?
Unlike full-height shutters that cover the entire window or tier-on-tier shutters that consist of multiple tiers, café shutters are designed to cover only the lower portion of the window, leaving the upper part exposed. By leaving the top section of the window uncovered, café shutters let in ample natural light, creating a bright and airy ambience in your space. This makes them perfect for areas where you want to enjoy the views and maximise daylight while maintaining a level of privacy.
