Incorporating Window Treatments In Your Houston Remodel Project

Cory Cryer

It’s finally time. You’re ready to get started that home project you’ve been putting off 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 amazing for years to come.

Remember Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel

Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief parts of home architecture. Windows are mainly responsible for letting in light, 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. Do you want 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 putting in new window coverings is a piece 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 are several benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Everyone can get a project timeline established, making the project go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment provider can get in, take measurements, and offer ideas upfront, prior to any demolition.

  • 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 - resulting in a better looking final product.
