How to Incorporate Windows In Your Honolulu Home Remodel

April 10, 2017

You’ve decide–no more waiting. You’re ready to dive into that home remodel you’ve been putting off for months. But before you begin with any DIY work or invite one of the best Honolulu remodelers in, you need to make sure you’re planning everything out correctly–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the project.

We’ve gathered some tips on what you should do before, during, and after your remodel to make it look phenomenal for years to come.

Think About Why Windows Are Important to Your Remodel

Most remodelers will concur that windows are one of the key elements of architectural home design. Windows are chiefly responsible for allowing light in, which can drastically change the look of a room regardless of any other design choice on the 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 natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

Answering any of those questions can make a big impact on what your remodel needs to include, so take some time and give your windows some attention.

Involve Your Window Treatment Provider Early In the Project

If new window treatments are going to be part of your remodel, try to 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 several benefits in getting all your service providers talking:

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

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

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

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