How to Incorporate Windows In a Detroit Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

The time has finally come. You’re ready to dive into that home remodel you’ve been putting off for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Detroit remodelers in, you want 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 incredible for years and years.

Think About Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for letting in light, which can drastically impact the look of a room despite any other design choice inside. So before your project gets too far along, think about different things you’d want to see from your windows. Would you prefer 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 big impact on what goes into your remodel, 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 are several benefits 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.
