Incorporating Window Treatments In a Gainesville Remodel Project04/10/2017Eric Ramsey At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to start on that home project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you start doing 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 most important parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact how a room looks in spite of 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. Do you want more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.? Answering any of those questions can have a sizeable impact on how your remodel goes, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve. 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 are several benefits 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 more cohesive direction for the style of your remodel - resulting in a better looking space when it’s finished.
