Creating a uncluttered, minimal look sounds easy enough. Use calming, neutral tones, don’t use lots of mismatching patterns.. etc etc. Light is another important aspect that might get overlooked. Although blinds are practical, that doesn’t mean they need to be ugly or utilitarian. By using blinds as part of a window treatment, light can be allowed in, whilst still having privacy.
By filtering sunlight through blinds, rooms that can still feel bright without being completely open to the outside world, as with these Luxaflex blinds.
Likewise window treatments don’t need to be froufrou. These days blinds are available in styles that are in keeping with a minimal, uncluttered look (rather than looking like something out of an 80s office).
As well as saving space, blinds can add texture and depth to an otherwise overlooked aspect when styling a room. Scandinavian style often uses a mix of textures rather than lots of colours and blinds can be a subtle way of introducing contrasting fabrics. Likewise, using a slightly different tone for example using a pale grey if the walls are white – can add warmth and softness to an otherwise hard or bland space.
