The time has finally come. You’re ready to get started that home project you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite your favorite Houston remodeler in, you should make sure you’re planning out everything correctly–especially when it comes to how you incorporate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the remodel.
Let’s talk through what you should do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look incredible for years and years.
Think About Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel
Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief pieces of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically change how a room looks regardless of any other design choice you make. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, think about any changes you’d want to make in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy or noise control?
Answering any of those questions can make a sizeable impact on what needs to happen in your project, so give those questions their due diligence.
Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project
If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment provider talking to your general contractor early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home improvement project, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your contractors talking:
Each party can get a working timeline established, making the project go quicker and more smoothly.
Your window treatment provider can get in, take measurements, and give ideas upfront, before any demolition takes place.
A lesser chance of mistakes made in a remodel that leaves you with anything other than the dream house you want.
A smoother direction for the style of your home - giving you a better looking final product.
You should also try to choose a window treatment installer that has worked with home builders in the past. Sunburst Shutters Houston has working relationships with several Houston designers and contractors, so we know how to best work with those professionals.
Choosing a window treatment provider that frequently partners with home remodelers can give you an idea of what your space will eventually look like, as well as reduce how long you have to wait before you can enjoy your reimagined space, in addition to a spectacular looking finished product.
