Café-style shutters cover just the lower sash, leaving the upper section free to let in the daylight. This is an ideal solution for rooms overlooked from street level but not by neighbouring properties.
Shutter with a mid-rail
Shutters can be created with a mid-rail – breaking the louvres into upper and lower sections.
This is perfect for reflecting the mid-rail on your sash windows and gives additional light control. Implementing a mid-rail means that bottom and top-tier louvres are controlled independently.
Shutters can add needed privacy to taller sash windows
This is perfect for reflecting the mid-rail on your sash windows and gives additional light. One of the things that makes sash windows so attractive is that they often stand tall in rooms with high ceilings.
While this makes a room look extremely impressive, it also presents privacy issues when you have other properties nearby. Shutters on these taller sash windows are a perfect solution if you’d like to add privacy without compromising on the light coming into your space.
Your shutter’s louvres can be adjusted so that light comes in through any angle. You can adjust your louvres accordingly to protect privacy from higher angles. You can do that if you’d prefer to keep your space private from street level.
In fact, with a mid-rail added to full-height shutters, you can ensure your room isn’t visible from any angle – while still letting the sunshine flood in.
