Incorporating Window Treatments In Your Minneapolis Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to dive into that home remodel you’ve been putting off for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best Minneapolis remodelers in, you want to make sure you’re planning out everything effectively–especially in regards to how you integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the remodel.

Let’s talk through what you need to do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look incredible for years and years.

Remember Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Many remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the most important elements of home architecture. Windows are chiefly 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. Do you want more light coming in? Would you want better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

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

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early On

If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment provider talking to your general contractor early on in the project. With lots of moving parts in a home remodel, there are many benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Everybody can get a working timeline in place, making the project go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, take measurements, and offer ideas upfront, prior to any demolition.

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in something 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.
