Designing a home is no simple task, and if you’re going for the minimalist look it can be even more difficult to pull off. To the untrained eye, it seems simple since this design theme is very clean and uncluttered, but achieving this look takes a lot of thought and planning. Minimalist window treatments are one area that can be overlooked when designing a room, but if you want to stay true to the minimalist look then you may want to consider these options.

A Modern Approach

When designing a space that has a minimalist feel, often you’ll want to search for modern items to use in the space. This same rule can most definitely be applied to your window coverings. If you’re not careful with your choice, the window coverings can end up throwing off the entire space and taking away from your design concept.

Windows are typically one of – if not the – biggest features in a room. That’s why it makes sense to give the minimalist window treatments a lot of thought. While some feel that leaving them naked is the true meaning of “minimalist design”, this isn’t necessarily true. In fact, there are options you can incorporate that won’t take away from the clean lines and uncluttered feel in your home.

Curtains – Be Careful Not to Get Overly Fancy

For those who feel curtains are an absolute must when it comes to window coverings, you want to be sure you pick something that isn’t fussy. What this means is that they should hang in a clean manner without extra bulk. As well, you want to stick with a neutral colour that ideally blends with the walls. This will help ensure that the curtains won’t stick out too much and become a focal point.

Simple Shades – Practical and Minimalist

Roman shades are another excellent option for those wishing to stick to a minimalist decor style. For an added touch, you can actually hang shades at the top of the wall so it makes it seem like you have larger windows than you actually do. This helps to create a sense of space and openness in a room and works especially well on windows that seem too small for the space.

Blinds – A Favorite for Many

If you’re looking for that universal window covering that works in any room of the house, any sized room, and any colour room, it’s hard to beat the versatility that blinds offer. Because you can get them in such a wide variety of sizes, colours, and styles, you’re sure to find one that works with the space.

Windows Deserve Attention

As you work to create a stunning masterpiece in your home, don’t forget to give the attention of the window too as there are plenty of window coverings that will work beautifully.
