New Windows As Part Of Interior Design

I recently had an interior designer work with me to redo a window set to alter the interior design of the room. Existing windows were in good shape but she wanted a new style. This was a first for me. We are usually installing new windows because of worn out old drafty windows.

Wondering if others have had this happen and how frequently does it occur.

Nope. I've added windows and moved windows, but never been asked to replace them just for looks. But my clientele rarely use interior designers.

Re: New Windows As Part Of Interior Design

Yes, I make about an extra $500 a year selling pre-owned windows on Craigslist at $20-$50 a pop.

Mostly vinyl windows that were replaced for style reasons.

Not necessarily driven by the Interior Designer though. There is one I work with though, who I can almost guarantee that she will recommend replacing a window or adding a window.

Real common request is to change window over kitchen sink, from Slider or single hung to an awning or casement, to improve the view.

It really depends on the designer/brief; with high-end/high-budget clients this can happen, but it doesn't tend to be standard practice...
