Minimalist Home Decor: Window Options
Window dressings are foundational to your interior decor. They set the stage for other elements of design, and are needed to regulate privacy, light, and temperature. When creating a minimalist aesthetic it can be a struggle finding the perfect, streamlined look. However, there are numerous minimalist window options available to choose from.
Minimalist Home Decor
The minimalist look has a calming, orderly charm. If you’re loving minimalism, you can dress your windows with a wide variety of clean looking options. Curtains are not the only choice for style and privacy! Here are a few stylish minimalist window options that’re stunning and go with your look:
Wave Pleat Curtains
These are curtains, but they hang in a large, clean way, with low visual detail because of the way they interact with the rod. The look is elegant and simple, and really complements larger windows. Don’t lose the minimalist style by choosing a print, though! Go with a solid or interesting texture to keep the look minimalist.
Ceiling Mounted Rods
Stay within your minimalist theme by using ceiling mounted rods. Hanging curtains from ceiling to floor creates dramatic scale while keeping thing simple. This way, you get to maximize views and create a polished look that’s not distracting. If you want ultimate luxury, install motorized curtains to control how much sun gets in with the flick of a switch, or on a timer. As always in minimalism, avoid prints.
If you want balance and calm, a shoji screen is a great fit. These panels of canvas or rice paper can hang from a ceiling mounted track and made to move seamlessly with drapery wands. This is one of the more expensive window covering options, though.
Also called honeycomb shades, cellular shades fold up when open and expand to hold channels of air when closed. Cellular shades are great for insulation, but also they have a crisp, clean look that fits right into the minimalist aesthetic. They can be even mounted within a window frame, contributing to the look of a seamless wall surface.
Roller shades can be fabric or natural or synthetic reeds. The fabrics available can be sheer or opaque prints, solids, or textures. Even with a print it’s hard to make a roller shade look messy. They’re the simplest looking window treatment out there.
