How to Incorporate Windows In a Fort Lauderdale Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

It’s finally time. You’re ready to start on that home improvement project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite your favorite Fort Lauderdale remodeler in, you should make sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially when it comes to how you integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your project.

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

Think About Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

The majority of remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key pieces of home architecture. Windows are mainly responsible for letting in light, which can drastically impact the look of a room despite any other design choice you make. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, think about any changes you’d want to see 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 huge impact on what goes into your remodel, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved Early On

If putting in new window coverings is a piece of your remodel, try to get your window treatment provider in contact with your general contractor early on in the project. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Everybody can get a project timeline established, making your home remodel go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment dealer 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 more defined direction for the style of your home - making for a better looking space when it’s finished.
