Incorporating Window Treatments In Your New York City Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

The time has finally come. You’re ready to get started that home project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best New York City remodelers in, you need to be sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the project.

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

Realize Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Many remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are chiefly responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically impact the look of a room despite any other design choice you make. So before your project gets too far along, think about different things you’d want to make in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy or noise control?

Thinking about any of those questions can have a huge impact on what goes into your remodel, so give those questions their due diligence.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early In the Project

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

  • Everyone can get a solid timeline in place, making your home remodel go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and give ideas upfront, before any demolition takes place.

  • A lesser 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 - resulting in a better looking final product.
