As far as styles go, the minimalist style is one of the more enduring and is enjoying popularity today. If you’re decorating a home to embrace minimalism, determining where to start might be a bit overwhelming. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Bonita Springs, we have a few tips that might help. Check them out below!
Pared Down Intentionally
Renowned 20th-century architect and interior designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe coined the phrase “less is more,” and it is the general philosophy of minimalism. Because of a drive toward sustainability, this decades-old trend has become increasingly popular lately. The point isn’t about having nothing but rather about having only what’s needed—for example, if you notice you don’t use a particular end table, you might remove it from the space. Anything you keep is what is the most functional for your needs, including smart storage, for example.
About Minimalist Style
Clean lines, neutral base colors with stark contrasts, simple shapes, no excessive furniture or décor, an open floor plan, and natural light are some of the main hallmarks of minimalism. The emphasis in the space is on what’s needed versus what is fluff. It’s uncluttered, purposeful, peaceful, and calming.
Creating Your Minimalist Space
Start by decluttering the room, keeping only the elements and furniture that you truly need and enjoy. Remove all but your most beloved pieces of décor and art. Try to keep all elements timeless and simple, and always remember to make it comfortable for you. And don’t forget the window treatments! The best treatments to complement minimalist style have clean lines, are functional, and offer simplicity. Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades are a great option. They offer smooth operation and are available in over 350 color and fabric choices, including complementary neutrals or colors that can add contrast to the space. Silhouette® Sheer Shades are also a good choice for minimalism, with their simple lines and sheer fabric that beautifully filters natural light. Duette® Cellular Shades add texture to the window; plus, their honeycomb construction offers energy-saving functionality. Finally, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer no exposed rear cords for a clutter-free look at the window.
