Now, as you set out on your minimalist design journey, you may want to remove window treatments altogether. Not so fast. Although you’re headed in the right direction, bare windows come with their own issues. To add privacy and protect from UV damage, consider fabric shades that blend in with your color scheme. This designer trick creates a seamless look while providing the protection you need.

When the shades are down, you’re content with the look of your windows. But, as you raise your window coverings up, an abundance of overlapping stacked fabric may take away from the simple look. To solve the issue, try rollers to keep your window low profile and tidy.

We have many shades with rolling capabilities that minimize fabric at the top and look incredible. Try rolling roman shades or rolling cellulars that disappear into the headrail. You’ll be surprised at how many of our products come with the rolling operation option. Just ask.

Low Profile

Likewise, sleek form and minimalist design call for low profile treatments. It’s all in the details, so be sure to customize the look of your headrail to complete the look. A squared-off version for a modern design would be the perfect choice.
