Incorporating Window Treatments In a Gainesville Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home improvement project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite your favorite Gainesville remodeler in, you want to be sure you’re planning out everything accordingly–especially when it comes to how you integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel.

Let’s talk through what you should do before, during, and after your home project to make it look phenomenal for years.

Remember How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel

Many remodelers will agree that windows are one of the chief pieces of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for letting in light, which can drastically impact how a room looks despite any other design choice inside. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, think about any changes you’d want to see in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy, noise control, etc.?

Answering any of those questions can have a sizeable impact on how your remodel goes, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early On

If window treatments will be an element of your remodel, try to get your window treatment dealer in contact with 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 contractors talking:

  • Each contractor can get a working timeline in place, making your home remodel go faster and easier.

  • Your window treatment provider can get in, take measurements, and offer ideas upfront, before any other work happens.

  • 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 remodel - giving you a better looking space when it’s finished.
