Incorporating Windows In Your San Jose Remodel Project04/10/2017Curtis Orton It’s finally time. 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 your favorite San Jose remodeler in, you want to make sure you’re planning out everything correctly–especially when it comes to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel. Here’s what you should do before, during, and after your home project to make it look phenomenal for years. Think About Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel Most remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the most important parts of architectural home design. Windows are mainly responsible for letting in light, which can drastically change the look of a room in spite of any other design choice on the inside. So before your remodel starts gathering steam, think about any changes you’d want to see in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Would you want better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy, noise control, etc.? Thinking about any of those questions can make a sizeable 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 you want new window treatments as part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment dealer talking to your general contractor early in the process. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there are several benefits in getting all your service providers talking: Everyone can get a project 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 demolition takes place. A lesser chance of mistakes made in a remodel that leaves you with something other than the dream house you want. A more cohesive direction for the style of your home - making for a better looking final product. You should also try to choose a window treatment dealer that has worked with home designers in the past.
