How to Incorporate Windows In Your Indianapolis Remodel Project

April 10, 2017

It’s finally time. You’re ready to dive into that home improvement project you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite one of the best Indianapolis remodelers in, you should be sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially when it comes to how you’ll incorporate windows and window treatments such as shutters into your remodel.

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

Remember How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

Many remodelers will agree that windows are one of the key pieces of architectural home design. 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 get too far into your remodel, think about any changes you’d want to see from your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Could you use more effective privacy or noise control?

Answering any of those questions can have a big impact on how your remodel goes, so give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If you want new window treatments as part of your remodel, try to get your window treatment installer talking to your home remodeler early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home redesign, there are many benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

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

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

  • Less of a chance of mistakes made in a remodel that leaves you with anything other than the dream house you want.

  • A more defined direction for the style of your remodel - making for a better looking final product.

It’s beneficial to pick a window treatment dealer that has done work with home designers before. Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis has working relationships with several Indianapolis designers and contractors, so we know how to best work with those professionals.

Picking a window treatment company that often works with home designers can give you a better idea of what your space will eventually look like, as well as cut down on the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your reimagined home, not to mention a better-looking finished product.
