How to Incorporate Window Treatments In a Dallas Home Remodel04/10/2017Collins Jones It’s finally time. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home remodel you’ve been putting off for months. But before you begin with 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. Here’s 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 Many remodelers will concur that windows are one of the most important 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 inside. So before your project gets too far along, 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 take some time and give your windows some attention. Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, 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: Everybody can get a working timeline in place, making the project go quicker and easier. Your window treatment dealer 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 more cohesive direction for the style of your home - giving you a better looking space when it’s finished. It’s also helpful to a window treatment provider that has worked with home builders before. Sunburst Shutters Dallas is familiar with several Dallas home builders and designers, so we know how to work with other home services. Selecting a window treatment company that often partners with home remodelers can give you an idea of what your finished space will look like, as well as reduce how long you have to wait before you can enjoy your reimagined space, not to mention a better-looking finished product.
