Making the Most of Minimalist Design

The minimalist design movement is sweeping many areas of lifestyle and decor. It’s becoming a very sought after interior design aesthetic. Why? Well, simplicity can be bliss. Especially since it feels like we just have too much stuff! Experts at Houzz gave their feedback on the newest book to hit the market acting as a guide to tackle the minimalism feel. However, when it comes to window coverings we think they play a huge part in the process.


Cords are not only sloppy looking but also dangerous. Children and pets can be injured by their long dangling strings. By removing them you’ll be pleasantly surprised on how instant the difference will be.

If the look of having bare windows is what you’re after we have a solution. By having the fabrics of your window coverings match your wall color it will all blend and create a magazine worthy minimalist design. Harsh Texas heat and its harmful UV rays can enter if you go for the bare look. That is NOT a good look.

Roll Out…Roll In

Hate how shades look jumbled on top when not in use? Window shades can have rolling operations. When the shades roll they disappear right into the headrail. Out of sight and embracing the minimalist design.
