Café Style Shutters

Café style shutters are so-called as they are typically more common in public eating and drinking establishments to give privacy. There is no difference in the design or build of the shutters. The shutters do however finish around halfway up the window at a height chosen by the customer, normally in line with the beam bars in the window. 

This style of window shutters can commonly be seen in domestic houses with shorter front gardens and sitting rooms at the front of the property. As there is less shutter, it can also be a cost-effective solution or be used alongside another window dressing such as a curtain or roman blinds.

Security Shutters are a metal version of full height shutters that can be locked. From a distance, the difference in style or material will not be overtly noticeable but will give you peace of mind. Particularly relevant if you are looking to install these shutters in your second home or if you spend a lot of time out at work or away. These high-quality aluminium metal shutters give you a stylish alternative to their predecessors that are unsightly and ugly.

  • Blind Technique did a superb job on the roof blinds for my conservatory. They fit the difficult shape exactly and are easy to draw open or shut. They are a replacement for the blinds the company did years ago, which I have been very pleased with, and I am very happy with the new ones.
