It’s finally time. You’re ready to start on that home improvement project you’ve been putting off for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite your favorite Denver remodeler in, you want to make sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially when it comes to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the project.
Let’s talk through what you need to do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look incredible for years to come.
Remember How Important Windows Are to a Remodel
The majority of remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key pieces of home architecture. Windows are chiefly responsible for letting in light, which can drastically change the look of a room regardless of any other design choice on the inside. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about different things you’d want to make in your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy or noise control?
Thinking about any of those questions can make a huge impact on what needs to happen in your project, so give those questions their due diligence.
Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early On
If window treatments will be an element of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment provider talking to your general contractor early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:
Each party can get a solid timeline in place, making the project go quicker and easier.
Your window treatment provider can get in, get window measurements, and give ideas upfront, before any other work happens.
A lesser chance of mistakes made in a remodel that results in something other than your dream home.
A more cohesive direction for the style of your home - resulting in a better looking space when it’s finished.
You should also try to choose a window treatment installer that has worked with home designers before. Sunburst Shutters Denver has worked with several Denver home builders and designers, so we know how to work with other home services.
Picking a window treatment provider that frequently partners with home remodelers can give you an idea of how your remodel will look when finished, as well as cut down on the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your revamped home, not to mention a better-looking finished product.
