It’s finally time. You’re ready to start on that home remodel you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite your favorite Dallas remodeler in, you should be sure you’re planning out everything effectively–especially when it comes to how you incorporate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel.
We’ve gathered some tips on what you need to do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look amazing for years to come.
Realize How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel
The majority of remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief pieces of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically change the look of a room in spite of any other design choice you make. So before your remodel starts gathering steam, think about different things you’d want to see from your windows. Do you want more light coming in? Would you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?
Finding your answer to any of those questions can make a huge impact on how your remodel goes, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.
Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project
If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment dealer talking to your general contractor early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:
Everyone can get a project timeline in place, making the project go quicker and easier.
Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and provide ideas upfront, before any other work happens.
Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in anything other than your dream home.
A smoother direction for the style of your home - giving you a better looking space when it’s finished.
You should also try to choose a window treatment provider that has worked with home designers before. Sunburst Shutters Dallas is familiar with several Dallas designers and contractors, so we know the process inside and out.
Picking a window treatment company that often partners with home remodelers can give you an idea of how your remodel will look when finished, as well as reduce how long you have to wait before you can enjoy your remodeled space, not to mention a spectacular looking finished product.
