In the past, white window treatments may have been considered “dull” and “basic,” but they have recently seen a new resurgence in popularity. Contrary to what you may have thought about white blinds in the past, we encourage you to reconsider what they can do for your home. Though minimalism first became popular in the ‘60s and ‘70s, recently, it has made a comeback that can be reflected in the uptick in white blinds’ popularity. The minimalist style of home decorating makes your space look clean, open, and welcoming, reducing clutter in favor of simplicity, and is particularly advantageous in small spaces you want to make look larger. If you are interested in transforming your space into the minimalist style, white blinds are a great way to instantly change the appearance and ambiance of a room. Here are some different recommendations for white blinds for your minimalist home.
White Roman Shades
Originally created in ancient Rome, Roman shades provide a classic look to any room, but they often come different colors and patterns. White Roman shades are perfect for adding a clean, simple style to any room. One of the biggest advantages of choosing Roman shades is that they are very simple to clean; just use a damp cloth or vacuum attachment to gently remove any debris. This is ideal for white curtains which can sometimes look more obviously dirty when dust accumulates. Because they are so easy to clean, Roman shades are the perfect white window treatment for you.
White Honeycomb Shades
One concern you may have about using white window treatments is that they would let in more sunlight, increasing your energy consumption. Honeycomb shades are the best window treatment for energy efficiency, even if they are white. With the small air pockets inside this type of shade, insulation is easy, so you don’t have to worry about elevating energy bills with these white shades. One of the goals of the minimalist philosophy is to reduce unnecessary distractions from everyday life. With white honeycomb shades, you don’t need to direct your attention to energy efficiency; your blinds do it for you!
White Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters first became popular in the Southern US pre-civil war; however, they have been around since ancient times, with good reason. These beautiful shutters afford you plenty of privacy when you need them, yet still allow you to bring sunlight in using slats. White plantation shutters are a popular window treatment so if you are looking to install white window treatments that still hold a tradition look, plantation shutters are a great option.
White Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are a great option for white window treatments. First of all, they are exceptionally easy to clean, and are much less likely to collect dust than their horizontal counterparts. Additionally, vertical blinds are great for larger windows and glass sliding doors, making them a good option for your patio entrance. Finally, vertical blinds are relatively inexpensive, so if you are looking for a cost-effective minimalist window treatment, these are ideal.
