How to Incorporate Window Treatments In a Seattle Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to dive into that home remodel you’ve been batting around for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best Seattle remodelers in, you need to be sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially in regards to how you incorporate windows and window treatments such as shutters into your project.

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

Realize How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will agree that windows are one of the chief pieces of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically impact how a room looks despite any other design choice you make. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, think about different things you’d want to make in your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Do you want better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

Thinking about any of those questions can make a big impact on what goes into your remodel, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early In the Project

If you want new window treatments as part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment dealer talking to your home remodeler early on in the project. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there are many benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each contractor can get a working timeline in place, making the project go faster and easier.

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

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in anything other than the dream house you want.

  • A smoother direction for the style of your remodel - making for a better looking space when it’s finished.
