Minimalism is a popular motif that has swept through interior design and pop culture in recent years. The minimalistic design seeks to create an uncluttered and unfussy space that has a sense of openness, which makes space physically feel larger; it does this by utilizing clean lines, simple design, and often a monochromatic or neutral color palette. This style of interior design allows for the character and beauty of individual items in a room to shine, undiminished by superfluous clutter. The mood of this style set is calming because it strips away unnecessary distractions to create a peaceful environment.
The minimalistic design incorporates all elements in a room from the floor treatment to furniture selection to window coverings. With all elements used in this style, both aesthetic appeal and functional design must be considered to fully embrace the simple and elegant nature of modern minimalism. Hunter Douglas produces several lines of shades, shutters, and blinds that work well in minimalistic design because of their straightforward design and simple style.
There are some designs of window treatments that lend themselves better to minimalistic styles than others because of their straightforward design. For example, both Design Studio™ Roller Shades and Parkland® Wood Blinds are fitted to the inside of a window frame; this tailored design has an uncluttered and unobtrusive style that works for minimalistic design. Additionally, these styles are available in a range of rich neutral tones, which are often used in minimalism.
Simple style does not mean simplistic design. Rather, simple style appreciates the character of design elements without over embellishment. Therefore, window treatments like Heritance® Hardwood Shutters or Design Studio™ Roller Shades with their clean lines and uncomplicated style are perfect. Additionally, the fabric material choices for roller shades include monochromatic patterns and natural textures that can add depth and dimension to the window fashion while still maintaining a minimalistic aesthetic.
Embracing minimalism applies to the visual aspects of the window treatment and also its operational functionality. Automation simplifies design and control for a fuller realization of minimalism within the design of the window treatment. Blinds and roller shades upgraded with PowerView® Automation don’t require a hanging cord for manual operation, so this unneeded element can be eliminated for a cleaner, less cluttered look. PowerView® Automation also simplifies the use of shades and blinds for homeowners with easy-to-use interfaces and programmable options.
