With construction, whether it’s home remodeling or building a new home, it’s important to plan ahead for window treatments. Taking time to identify the types of window treatments and window coverings for your home, before the construction is complete will result in a more cost-effective and practical outcome. Since window treatment selection can be difficult due the variety of options, the benefits of deciding on the type of window covering during construction are endless.

When building a home or remodeling, selecting the type of windows should be followed by selecting types of window treatments. Style, shapes, size and location of the window will all determine the type of window coverings necessary for a particular room. Arched and angled windows will allow the warm sun to enter during the winter months, but how will you keep the heat out during summer? If your customized window faces the sun in the morning, should you consider privacy shades? What type of window coverings will agree with your style and serve as a practical window shade? All these questions should be addressed during construction.

Many home owners in the New York City area have chosen to incorporate motorized shades into their home. The best time to install these window shades is during construction when electric plans and construction can be thought out together. Motorized shades allow for quick, one touch window solutions. The size of your windows as well as the placement of windows is important during installation. Motorized shades, like most other options can be customized for your windows.

Considering window treatments during the construction process of your home can be very beneficial. Planning and budgeting for window treatments before the building phase is becoming an important part of residential construction. With the variety of window treatment options, from roller shades to folding shades to solar shades and more, homeowners can choose their preference ahead of time.

Motorized shades have become a popular choice for homeowners, integrating lighting, audio visual, home automations and even home theater systems. Controlling your window shades with the touch of a button is a desirable feature for your motorized shades. Installing motorized window shades during construction can help cut costs in comparison to adding the option after construction. Residents on Park Avenue, Madison Avenue and throughout New York City have experienced such options during their construction phases. Being able to provide the electrician with wiring plans will ensure your desired outcome.

Planning out the interior of your home with architects and home designers can result in the best outcome. Window treatments can be chosen based on the type of windows you’re covering, the furniture in the room or many other reasons. Working with your construction crew to accommodate for specific window coverings can also help. Larger windows may require extra framing to accommodate the extra weight of the large window shade chosen for it. The wood block should be a certain thickness based on the window treatments you choose.

Window treatments and window shades require some thinking and planning. If you’re working on new construction, it’s very helpful to plan your window treatments as well as the rest of the building work. The time and construction to accommodate certain window coverings can be incredibly valuable for your home and your wallet!
