How to Incorporate Windows In Your Honolulu Home Remodel

Darren Wong

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 start doing any DIY work or invite one of the best Honolulu remodelers in, you want to make sure you’re planning everything out effectively–especially in regards to how you’ll integrate windows and window treatments like shutters into the project.

Here’s 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 remodel starts gathering steam, think about different things you’d want to see in your windows. Would you prefer more light coming in? Would it be helpful to have better control over that natural light? Do you need better privacy or noise control?

Thinking about any of those questions can make a huge impact on what goes into your remodel, 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, get your window treatment provider talking to your home designer early in the process. With lots of moving parts in a home redesign, there’s a lot of benefit in getting all your service providers talking:

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

  • Your window treatment installers can get in, get window measurements, and offer 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 - giving you a better looking final product.
