What Blinds Are Best For A Minimalist Home?
Minimalist styles are all the rage nowadays and for good reason, there aren’t many themes that feel as sleek and stylish as a well-executed minimalist décor scheme, which creates a clean and calm look, without looking cluttered or sterile.
If you’re not familiar with minimalism, it is essentially décor that follows the mantras of ‘more is less’ and ‘quality over quantity’. By reducing the amount of clutter in any given room, you can create a nice minimalist room which will look stunning and modern.
There are a few types of minimalism, but all of them rely on the same basic philosophies of: Using a neutral colour palette to lay a calm base; contrasting empty spaces against feature décor pieces; decluttering your décor and using clean lines around the home to direct focus.
Simply put, minimalist décor is all about removing unnecessary frills from your home’s décor, to create a refreshing clean look in your home and only using additional décor pieces to create contrast and highlight key areas of your home.
If you’ve designed your home to be a calm, minimalist haven, you’ll need some blinds that fit the scheme of minimalism, so today, we’ll be looking at which of our blinds would fit best into a minimalist scheme! Read on to see our top minimalist picks.
