Cafe shutters are one type of shutter that provides both style and function. Many homeowners are discovering the beauty of decorative house shutters for the first time and cafe shutters are right up there at the top. Many interior shutters do the same job as blinds but give your house a certain flair that blinds cannot.
With houses being built so close to one another now because developers want to maximize land, privacy is harder to find. Your neigbors windows are so close that you need someithing to maintain your privacy. Many kitchens have big windows and light needs to be let in but if you open the blinds, there are your neighbors possibly looking right in at you. What do you do to get some outside light into your kitchen without compromising your privacy?
The perfect solution to this problem comes in the form of cafe shutters. Although mostly thought of for decorative reasons, cafe shutters provide a big benefit of privacy as well as just looking great. Cafe shutters are designed to be installed on the bottom half of your windows thus blocking out those peeping neighborhood eyes while letting in light from the upper half of the window. Most cafe shutters also let a fair amount of light in through the bottom too and if you desire you can open them all the way to let as much light come in as you want from both the top and bottom of the window.
Cafe shutters are usually interior shutters and so the aesthetic benefits come from looking at them while you are inside the house. Shutters like these can add a beauty and style to your windows that no kind of blind can no matter how expensive they are. Having cafe shutters over your windows is a step up from any kind of blinds you choose no matter how expensive they are. Your only similar option with blinds would be to have the kind that open top down installed instead of the usual kind where you pull them up.
Homeowners are always looking for reasonably priced ways to update their houses and keep them contemporary. Interior and exterior decorative shutters are one way to do this that will not empty your pocketbook. Depending on how many, shutters can usually be installed in less than a day and will give your home the extra style it was so desperately needing!
