The Minimalist Design of Modern Window Coverings

Are you intrigued by the idea of minimalist design? It’s a hot topic in interior design, especially when many of us know we have just too much stuff. The pros over at Houzz are offering their review of the newest book to hit the market, guiding us through the process of achieving minimalism. But, when it comes to the atmosphere & look of your home, we have pretty strong feelings about how important the window coverings can be. 



If you haven’t heard, those long, dangling cords of old window treatments aren’t just adding a messy look to your windows. They’re very dangerous for young children and pets. You’ll be surprised just how neat and tidy your window coverings can look by removing just that one element.

Love the idea of having nothing at the window? It definitely promotes minimalist design, but be careful. Bare windows bring in extensive sunshine and UV rays. Instead, consider choosing fabrics that blend with your wall color. This will allow you to achieve a unified look.

With your window coverings down and in place, you might be content. But when raised, it’s possible to find yourself annoyed with the overlapping or stacking of the fabrics at the top of the window. Do you know that you can get many of our window shades with rolling operation?

Of course, we have a wide range of roller shades, but we’ve added even more that might not be obvious! Roman shades now offer a rolling design. Cellular shades can roll. When shades roll, they disappear up into the headrail–out of the way.

Low Profile

Gone are the days of bulky window treatments. Today’s designs enhance your home with sleek form. Even the headrail can be customized to fit the look, with some collections offering squared-off versions for a modern design.
