Designer Roller Shades – Minimalism in Interior Design

Interior design is home to a number of different styles, from traditional to modern and more. At Windows, Walls & More serving West Bloomfield, we like to help our customers determine the style that works best for their space and then also help them find the window treatment that will complement that style as well. We’ve lately helped a number of clients who want to explore minimalism in interior design, so we thought we’d write a post to help people determine if this is right for their interior design.

Minimalism Characteristics

In the 20th century, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (a renowned German-American architect and interior designer) coined the phrase “less is more,” which is main tenet behind minimalism. So it’s interesting that, even though the trend has been around for decades, it’s enjoyed some new popularity in recent years because of the drive toward sustainability. Minimalism is characterized by clean lines, neutral base colors with stark contrasts, simple shapes, no excess, and natural light. The emphasis in the space is on what’s needed versus what is fluff. It’s uncluttered, purposeful, peaceful, and calming.

Bringing Minimalism to Your Space

The first thing you should do to create a minimalist space is to declutter. Keep only your most beloved art and décor pieces as well as the elements and furniture that you truly need and enjoy. As much as possible, keep only elements that are timeless and simple, so you don’t have to update anytime soon. And always remember to make it comfortable for you—after all, you’re living in the space and will want it functional.

Minimalist Design With Window Treatments

The best treatments for minimalist style have clean lines, useful functionality, and simplicity. One fantastic option is the Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shade, which is known for its smooth, flawless operation. This product comes in more than 350 color and fabric choices, including complementary neutrals or colors that can add contrast. You could also consider Silhouette® Sheer Shades for your minimalist look. They are known for their simple lines and sheer fabric that beautifully filters natural light. Another fine choice is Duette® Cellular Shades because they can add texture to the window; plus, their honeycomb construction offers energy-saving functionality. No matter your option, be sure to speak with one of our specialists so you can see the product up close and in person before you buy.
