Cafe Doors

We have produced a variety of cafe doors for both public and private use.   Interested in cafe doors?   Consider the following when designing your doors.

Fixed louvers– typically, all cafe door louvers are fixed.  The purpose of these doors is to obscure the view from one area into another and provide easy access, making fixed louvers a natural.  If you prefer the look of a tilt rod, it can be ordered as such.  You may want to tighten the louver tension so that the louvers are not moved unless that is your intention.

Design– the top of the cafe door can be a simple rectangular top, slightly curved or elaborately designed.  See example photos below or submit your own unique design.

Proportion- as with all our custom shutters, cafe doors are built to order.  Depending on the level of privacy you need, cafe doors are usually between 3′-5′ high, possibly higher.    A good rule of thumb is to take your opening height and order your shutters 1/2 to 2/3 the total height.  Also pay attention to where you want them positioned.  Are you taller than average?  You may want to hinge them higher to obstruct your site line.
