Incorporating Windows In a Raleigh Remodel Project

Blake Jarman

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to dive into that home project you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Raleigh remodelers in, you need to be sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially in regards to how you incorporate windows and window treatments like shutters into your project.

Here’s what you should do before, during, and after your home project to make it look incredible for years and years.

Realize Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel

Many remodelers will agree that windows are one of the most important elements of architectural home design. Windows are primarily responsible for letting in light, which can drastically change how a room looks despite any other design choice on the inside. So before you start gathering steam on your home project, 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? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

Thinking about any of those questions can have a huge impact on what your remodel needs to include, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Get Your Window Treatment Provider Involved 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’s a lot of benefit in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Each party can get a project timeline in place, making your home remodel go quicker and more smoothly.

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

  • Less of a chance of mistakes made in a remodel that leaves you with something 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.
