Incorporating Window Treatments In Your Sacramento Home Remodel

Curtis Orton

It’s finally time. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home improvement project you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite one of the best Sacramento remodelers in, you need to be sure you’re planning out everything accordingly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the project.

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

Remember Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Many remodelers will concur that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact the look of a room in spite of any other design choice on the inside. 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 natural light? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

Answering any of those questions can make a sizeable impact on what goes into your remodel, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early In the Project

If window treatments will be an element 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 remodel, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each contractor can get a solid timeline established, making the project go faster and more smoothly.

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

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

  • A smoother direction for the style of your remodel - resulting in a better looking final product.
