How to Incorporate Windows In Your Austin Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home improvement project you’ve been putting off for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite your favorite Austin remodeler in, you need to make sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially when it comes to how you’ll incorporate windows and window treatments like shutters into the remodel.

We’ve gathered some tips on what you should do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look amazing for years.

Think About How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

Most remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically change the look of a room in spite of any other design choice inside. So before your remodel starts gathering steam, think about any changes you’d want to make in your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

Finding your answer to any of those questions can make a big 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 new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment provider in contact with your home designer early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there are several benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each party can get a project timeline in place, making your home remodel go faster and easier.

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

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in something other than your dream home.

  • A smoother direction for the style of your home - resulting in a better looking space when it’s finished.

It’s also helpful to a window treatment dealer that has done work with home designers before. Sunburst Shutters Austin has worked with several Austin home builders and designers, so we know the process inside and out.

Choosing a window treatment company that frequently works with home remodelers can give you an idea of how your remodel will look when finished, as well as reduce the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your revamped home, not to mention a better-looking finished product.
