How to Incorporate Windows In a Detroit Remodel Project

Steve Hill

It’s finally time. You’re ready to dive into that home remodel you’ve been putting off for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best Detroit remodelers in, you need to make sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially when it comes to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your project.

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

Think About Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the most important pieces of home architecture. Windows are mainly responsible for letting in light, which can drastically impact the look of a room in spite of any other design choice you make. So before your project gets too far along, think about different things you’d want to see in your windows. Do you want more light coming in? Would you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

Thinking about any of those questions can have a sizeable impact on what your remodel needs to include, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early On

If putting in new window coverings is a piece of your remodel, try to get your window treatment provider in contact with your home remodeler early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Everybody can get a working timeline established, making the project go faster and easier.

  • Your window treatment dealer can get in, get window measurements, and provide ideas upfront, before any other work happens.

  • Less of a chance of mistakes made in a remodel that results in something other than your dream home.

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