Incorporating Window Treatments In a Cincinnati Home Remodel

Lisa Renee Nieberding

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 and years.

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 primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, 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 make in your windows. Do you want 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 take some time and give your windows some attention.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early In the Project

If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment installer talking to your home designer early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there are many benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each contractor can get a working timeline established, making your home remodel go quicker and easier.

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

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that leaves you with something other than your dream home.

  • A more cohesive direction for the style of your home - giving you a better looking final product.
