Incorporating Windows In a Hartford Home Remodel

Holly Perron

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to get started that home remodel you’ve been batting around for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite your favorite Hartford remodeler in, you should make sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the remodel.

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

Think About How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief parts of architectural home design. Windows are chiefly responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically impact the look of a room in spite of any other design choice on the inside. So before your project gets too far along, think about any changes you’d want to see from your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Do you want better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

Finding your answer to any of those questions can make a sizeable impact on how your remodel goes, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early On

If window treatments will be an element of your remodel, try to get your window treatment provider in contact with your home remodeler early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home redesign, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your contractors talking:

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

  • Your window treatment provider can get in, take measurements, and offer ideas upfront, before any other work happens.

  • Less of a 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 remodel - giving you a better looking space when it’s finished.
