How to Incorporate Window Treatments In Your Virginia Beach Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

It’s finally time. You’re ready to get started that home improvement project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Virginia Beach remodelers in, you need to make sure you’re planning everything out accordingly–especially in regards to how you integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the project.

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

Think About Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel

Many remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key parts of architectural home design. Windows are chiefly 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. Could you use more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that natural light? Could you use more effective privacy, noise control, etc.?

Finding your answer to any of those questions can make a big impact on what needs to happen in your project, 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, be sure to get your window treatment installer talking to your home remodeler early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there are many benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Everybody can get a working timeline established, making the project go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and give ideas upfront, prior to any demolition.

  • A lesser chance of mistakes made in a remodel that results in anything other than your dream home.

  • A smoother direction for the style of your home - making for a better looking final product.
