Minimalism: Design Your Best Life

Could you use minimalism in your life? Based on the popularity of Marie Kondo’s show on Netflix? We’re prepared to say all of us do. Whether you’re a fan of the show, or have a copy of her book, the results are clear. She’s changing lives and transforming homes with her “less is more” mantra.


Minimalism…What Is It?

Merriam Webster defines minimalism as “a style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity.” Simplifying life sounds like just what we all need. Clutter has been known to trigger anxiety. And, the act of freeing yourself of things is liberating.

What Do Window Treatments Have to Do with Minimalism?

One obvious way? Recognize the clutter old window coverings provide. Tangles of cords, broken slats, aged curtains…these cause anxiety and frustration. Today’s window treatments offer cordless blinds and shades with safe, low profile design and simplistic operation.

How Is Light Affecting Your Life?

You’re ready to create a simple, minimalistic environment. But, one important factor is lighting. Terrible light control is what we’ll call mood clutter–it’s the fastest way to freeze productivity. minimalism living room design floor to ceiling windows Hunter Douglas Englewood 80113

This gorgeous space is clutter-free and clean, the ideal room to relax and unwind. But, wait! The lighting is awful. Without window coverings, no matter how happy the design of the room makes you, you’ll still be uncomfortable.
