Incorporating Window Treatments In Your Salt Lake City Home Remodel

Matt Thelander

The time has finally come. You’re ready to get started that home improvement project you’ve been thinking about doing for months. But before you do any DIY work or invite your favorite Salt Lake City remodeler in, you want to make sure you’re planning out everything effectively–especially when it comes to how you integrate windows and window treatments such as shutters into the project.

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

Think About How Important Windows Are to a Remodel

Many remodelers will concur that windows are one of the most important parts of home architecture. Windows are chiefly responsible for bringing in lighting, which can drastically impact the look of a room in spite of any other design choice inside. So before you get too far into your remodel, think about different things you’d want to make in your windows. Could you use more light coming in? Do you want better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy, noise control, etc.?

Thinking about any of those questions can make a big impact on what your remodel needs to include, so give those questions their due diligence.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If putting in new window coverings is a piece of your remodel, be sure to get your window treatment installer in contact with your home designer early on in the project. With so many moving parts in a home improvement project, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:

  • Each contractor can get a project timeline established, making the project go faster and more smoothly.

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

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

  • A smoother direction for the style of your remodel - resulting in a better looking final product.
