Ideas to Cover the Bottom Half of Windows

Choosing the correct window dressing for any space requires due care and consideration. Not only should style and colour be factored in, but so should your individual needs. For many people, this means light and privacy and, at the very least, ensuring that you cover the lower half of the window. So, what if you only want the bottom half covered? Well, fortunately enough, shutters offer the perfect solution for just that!

Café Style Shutters

Café style shutters are shutters designed specifically to cover the bottom half of the window. While it is common to cover precisely the bottom half, this can be customised to line up with any rails or transoms on your window.

With café style shutters, you get the best of both worlds. The shutters afford all the privacy that come with other window dressings, but still allow plenty of light into your home. They also come available in both our materials: Pure Hardwood and Faux Wood.

Café Shutters and Curtains

If you’re looking for half window covering ideas, have you considered pairing café style shutters with curtains? By combining these two forms of window dressing, you can create a look that is layered and elegant. Plus, it means that you don’t have to get rid of your old curtains after you’ve purchased your brand-new shutters.
