Minimalism in interior design is centered around simplicity. Clean lines, neutral colors, and organic flow are all concepts popular. In short, simple is better. The carefully curated decor has a chance to shine. And all of this can extend even to your window treatments. Whether you want to use your windows to make a statement or work as a quiet actor in your overall minimalist decor, we have the window treatment selection for you at Hartley Window Coverings. Window treatments can easily influence the atmosphere of a room. They can make space feel more structured or free flowing. There’s no singular minimalistic window treatment, so this month on the blog, we’re sharing a few of our favorite styles that are minimalist friendly and how they can add value to your home.
A Natural Touch
Wooden window treatments, like woven wood shades, add a rustic touch to your home without conflicting with other design themes. Natural textures contribute visual interest and create an organic flow that doesn’t feel contrived or rigid. Choosing shades for a minimalist style also works well because shades are naturally cordless and even offer motorized solutions for comfortable, wireless control. Enhance your home’s privacy and UV protection without cumbersome window treatments.
Light and Airy
Styles like the Silhouette® and Pirouette® Window Shadings are worth your consideration for a minimalistic window treatment. These privacy sheers provide soft, diffuse light with adjustable fabric vanes to easily tilt incoming light without the restriction of a solid window shade. Enjoy wide open views to the outside without lifting your sheers, keeping your home private even on a busy street without making you feel closed off from the world. Silhouette® features a beautiful fabric collection full of pastel and muted colors perfect for a subtle note of color among your decor.
Minimalism is holistic, even in design theory. Consider your entire space. If you choose relatively simple furniture and accents for the center of your room, why not add a pop of neutral pattern to your windows? Your windows are just as valuable as an element of decor as the rest of your room. Roman shades, like the Vignette® style, feature substantial fabric collections designed to be timeless as well as give you the freedom to craft a unique atmosphere in each room of your home. Shake up your decor with a pop of bright color, like yellow or green for a fresh yet vibrant complement to gray-toned spaces or stick with the same neutral color and choose a pattern for a subtle texture that adds depth.
