How to Incorporate Window Treatments In a Boise Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

You’ve decide–no more waiting. You’re ready to get started that home project you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite your favorite Boise remodeler in, you want to make sure you’re planning everything out accordingly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel.

Let’s talk through what you need to do before, during, and after your home project to make it look amazing for years and years.

Remember How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

The majority of remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief pieces 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 on the inside. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about different things you’d want to see in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy, noise control, etc.?

Finding your answer to any of those questions can have a big impact on what your remodel needs to include, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early On

If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment installer talking to your home remodeler early in the process. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Everyone can get a solid timeline in place, making the project go faster and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment dealer can get in, take measurements, and provide 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 defined direction for the style of your home - making for a better looking final product.
