The time has finally come. You’re ready to start on that home remodel you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite one of the best Cincinnati remodelers in, you should make sure you’re planning out everything accordingly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the remodel.
Here’s what you should do before, during, and after your home project to make it look incredible for years to come.
Realize Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel
Many remodelers will concur that windows are one of the key parts of architectural home design. Windows are mainly responsible for letting in light, 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 make in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Would you want better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?
Finding your answer to any of those questions can make a huge impact on what needs to happen in your project, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.
Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early In the Project
If putting in new window coverings is a piece of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment installer talking to your home remodeler early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home remodel, there are many benefits in getting all your service providers talking:
Each contractor can get a project timeline established, making your home remodel go quicker and easier.
Your window treatment provider can get in, get window measurements, and give ideas upfront, before any demolition takes place.
Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that leaves you with something other than your dream home.
A smoother direction for the style of your home - resulting in a better looking final product.
You should also try to choose a window treatment installer that has done work with home designers before. Sunburst Shutters Cincinnati has worked with several Cincinnati builders, designers and remodelers, so we know how to work with other home services.
Choosing a window treatment provider that often partners with home designers can give you a better 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 home, not to mention a incredible looking finished product.
