How to Incorporate Window Treatments In Your Southern California Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

The time has finally come. You’re ready to start on that home improvement project you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Southern California remodelers in, you want to make sure you’re planning out everything effectively–especially when it comes to how you incorporate windows and window treatments like shutters into the remodel.

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

Realize How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

The majority of remodelers will agree that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for letting in light, which can drastically change how a room looks despite any other design choice you make. So before your remodel starts gathering steam, think about different things you’d want to see from your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Would you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

Thinking about any of those questions can have a sizeable impact on how your remodel goes, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, get your window treatment installer talking to 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:

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

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

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

  • A more defined direction for the style of your remodel - making for a better looking final product.

You should also try to choose a window treatment provider that has worked with home remodelers and designers before. Sunburst Shutters Southern CA has worked with several Southern California home builders and designers, so we know the process inside and out.

Picking a window treatment company that often partners with home designers can give you an idea of what your finished space will look like, as well as reduce the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your revamped home, not to mention a better-looking finished product.
