How to Incorporate Window Treatments In a Atlanta Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to dive into that home improvement project you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best Atlanta remodelers in, you should be sure you’re planning out everything accordingly–especially when it comes to how you incorporate windows and window treatments such as shutters into your project.

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

Remember How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel

The majority of remodelers will concur that windows are one of the chief pieces of home architecture. Windows are chiefly responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically impact the look of a room despite any other design choice inside. So before your remodel starts gathering steam, think about any changes you’d want to see from your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Would you want better control over that sunlight? 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 your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early On

If putting in new window coverings is a piece of your remodel, get your window treatment provider talking to your home remodeler early in the process. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there are many benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Each party can get a solid timeline in place, making the project go faster and easier.

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

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that leaves you with anything 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.

It’s also helpful to a window treatment provider that has worked with home builders in the past. Sunburst Shutters Atlanta has worked with several Atlanta home builders and designers, so we know how to best work with those professionals.

Picking a window treatment company that frequently works with home designers can give you a better idea of how your remodel will look when finished, as well as cut down on the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your reimagined home, not to mention a incredible looking finished product.
