Imagine bringing a touch of continental chic to your home, with sleek shutters that only cover the bottom part of your window.
Picture a solution that leaves light flooding in through the top half of your window, while you make a design statement below. Not only are café style shutters a beautiful expression of taste and flair, 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 kerb appeal to any home.
Unlike our full height plantation shutters, the beauty of café style is that they only cover the bottom half of the window. So even with added privacy for your home, you can still enjoy the warming glow of the summer sun, filtering into your home.
The alternative to the more modern Silent Tilt is the traditional Tilt Rod. Tilt rods are connected to each individual louvre with metal pins, allowing for an easy movement to control the light.
Tilt Roads can be split to allow for different sections of the panels louvres to operate individualy and allow better control of light and privacy. Or the tilt rods can be offset, this is especially helpful with byfolding panels.
For a cleaner more modern look Silent Tilt is available.
If you are looking for a cleaner, more contemporary look for your shutters, the hidden (or “silent”) tilt rod option could be something to consider.
Rather than a visible rod, silent tilt controls the louvres by a mechanism within the panel itself, meaning that if you tilt one, the others move with it. For shutters with a mid-rail or tier-on-tier split, the different sections are still operated separately, as with the visible tilt rod option..
