How to Incorporate Windows In a Washington DC Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to dive into that home project you’ve been putting off for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite your favorite Washington DC remodeler in, you want to make sure you’re planning everything out accordingly–especially in regards to how you integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel.

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

Remember Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Many remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the chief elements of architectural home design. Windows are chiefly responsible for letting in light, which can drastically change 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 make in your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that natural light? Could you use more effective privacy or noise control?

Answering any of those questions can have a huge impact on how your remodel goes, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early On

If you want new window treatments as part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment installer in contact with your home remodeler early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home remodel, there are many benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Each contractor can get a project timeline established, making your home remodel go quicker and easier.

  • Your window treatment provider can get in, take measurements, and give ideas upfront, before any demolition takes place.

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

  • A more cohesive direction for the style of your home - giving you a better looking space when it’s finished.
