How to Incorporate Windows In Your Hartford Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home remodel you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Hartford remodelers in, you should make sure you’re planning out everything effectively–especially when it comes to how you integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the project.

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

Think About How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

Many remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the chief elements of home architecture. Windows are mainly responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically change the look of a room regardless of any other design choice inside. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, think about different things you’d want to see in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy or noise control?

Thinking about any of those questions can make a sizeable impact on what needs to happen in your project, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If window treatments will be an element of your remodel, get your window treatment dealer talking to your home designer early on in the project. With lots of moving parts in a home improvement project, there are several benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Everybody can get a working timeline established, making your home remodel go faster and easier.

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

  • Less of a 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 remodel - giving you a better looking final product.

You should also try to choose a window treatment provider that has worked with home designers in the past. Sunburst Shutters Connecticut has working relationships with several Hartford builders, designers and remodelers, so we know the process inside and out.

Picking a window treatment company that frequently partners with home designers can give you a better idea of how your remodel will look when finished, as well as reduce the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your remodeled space, not to mention a spectacular looking finished product.
