How to Incorporate Windows In a San Antonio Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

You’ve made up your mind. You’re ready to dive into that home project you’ve been batting around for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite one of the best San Antonio remodelers in, you should make sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially when it comes to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into your remodel.

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

Think About Why Windows Are Important to a Remodel

The majority of remodelers will tell you that windows are one of the key parts of home architecture. Windows are primarily responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact the look of a room regardless of any other design choice inside. So before your project gets too far along, think about different things you’d want to see in your windows. Do you want more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that sunlight? 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 give your windows some attention and the time they deserve.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If window treatments will be an element 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 several benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each party can get a solid timeline established, making the project go quicker and more smoothly.

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and provide ideas upfront, before any demolition takes place.

  • Less of a chance of mistakes made in a remodel that results in something other than your dream home.

  • A more defined direction for the style of your remodel - making for a better looking space when it’s finished.

It’s also helpful to a window treatment dealer that has done work with home remodelers and designers before. Sunburst Shutters San Antonio has worked with several San Antonio designers and contractors, so we know how to best work with those professionals.

Selecting a window treatment provider that often partners with home designers can give you a better idea of what your space will eventually look like, as well as reduce the time spent waiting before you can enjoy your reimagined home, in addition to a spectacular looking finished product.
