How Pre-Planning Your Window Furnishings Can Make or Break a New Home Build

Not many people know just how crucial it can be to incorporate window furnishings into the design of a new home build. With so many considerations, thinking about your blinds, shutters or other design elements can fall by the wayside – but with a little pre-planning, you can save yourself a huge amount of time, money, and heartache.

Compatibility is key when it comes to designing your dream window. When window furnishings remain an afterthought, customers are often later unable to furnish as they desire due to a lack of compatibility with the window itself. Hardware, reveal depths, size, shape, and more are all factors that come into play when it comes time for installation. The good news? We can work with your builder or architect to ensure your result can be achieved with quality and efficiency.

Another consideration is time. The average wait time for a Shutters n Shades service is 4-6 weeks, depending on product. Add on the time it takes to identify which window furnishing option works with your structure, the product options to choose from, and the many other hurdles to jump when building a home – you’ll wish the window furnishings were all a part of the original plan.

Of course, cost management is the key to a successful build. The cost of window furnishings can be surprising, but this is due to the product quality and impact on your home life. Don’t worry, we have a life hack for you! Did you know that when you pre-plan your window furnishings, they can be eligible to include in your mortgage? Get the most out of your budget from the get-go.

With clear, upfront planning this also leaves more room for innovation and creativity! Today’s window furnishings include an unbelievably extensive range, including game changing automations to make your life easier. Thinking about motorisation? Pre-wiring during the build will save money. Interested in voice activated blinds? It’s easier (and cheaper) than you think! By incorporating window furnishings into your plan, a wide world of possibility can be explored.

The building process can be hard to wade through, but by getting your ducks in order at the start, you’ll be in the best position later down the track. Get in touch with us to find out how our services can benefit your home build journey.
