Incorporating Windows In a New Brunswick Remodel Project

Mike Horn

At long last, the time is here. You’re ready to dive into that home project you’ve been thinking of for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite your favorite New Brunswick remodeler in, you should be sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially when it comes to how you integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into your project.

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

Realize How Important Windows Are to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will agree that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are mainly responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact how a room looks regardless of any other design choice you make. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about any changes you’d want to see in your windows. Do you want more light coming in? Do you want better control over that sunlight? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

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 In the Project

If window treatments will be an element of your remodel, get your window treatment installer talking to your home designer early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there are many benefits in getting all your contractors talking:

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

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and provide ideas upfront, before any other work happens.

  • Less of a chance of mistakes made in a remodel that leaves you with anything other than your dream home.

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