Incorporating Window Treatments In a Boston Home Remodel

Holly Perron

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to pull the trigger on that home improvement project you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you start doing any DIY work or invite your favorite Boston remodeler in, you should make sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially when it comes to how you incorporate windows and window treatments like shutters into your remodel.

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

Realize Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel

The majority of remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact how a room looks regardless of any other design choice inside. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about different things you’d want to see from your windows. Would you prefer 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 sizeable impact on what your remodel needs to include, 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 dealer in contact with your home designer early in the process. With so many moving parts in a home remodel, there are several benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

  • Each contractor can get a solid timeline in place, making your home remodel go quicker and easier.

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

  • Fewer opportunities for mistakes being made in a remodel that results in anything other than your dream home.

  • A smoother direction for the style of your home - making for a better looking final product.
