How to Incorporate Windows In a Phoenix Home Remodel04/10/2017Greg Arnett It’s finally time. You’re ready to start on that home remodel you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite your favorite Phoenix remodeler in, you need to be sure you’re planning everything out accordingly–especially when it comes to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the remodel. Here’s what you should do before, during, and after your home project to make it look amazing for years and years. Think About How Important Windows Are to a Remodel Most remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the most important parts of architectural home design. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact the look of a room regardless of any other design choice inside. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about any changes you’d want to make in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Do you want better control over that natural light? Could you use more effective privacy, noise control, etc.? Thinking about any of those questions can have a sizeable impact on what goes into your remodel, so take some time and give your windows some attention. Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project If you want new window treatments as part of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment installer in contact with your home designer 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 in place, making your home remodel go quicker and more smoothly. Your window treatment dealer can get in, get window measurements, and offer ideas upfront, before any other work happens. Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in anything other than your dream home. A more defined direction for the style of your home - resulting in a better looking final product. It’s also helpful to a window treatment dealer that has done work with home designers before.
