Renovating your master bedroom can have multiple benefits for you. Not only will it be pleasing for you to have a spruced-up personal space, but it can also add a lot of value to your home. Knowing where to start and what to update can often be the challenging parts of this project. Whether you are updating your master bedroom for yourself or getting ready to place your home on the market, there are five things you should include in a master bedroom during home renovation.
If you are focusing on market value and want the biggest return on investment for your renovation, it should include a master bathroom remodel. What you bundle into your master bath remodel can vary depending on whether you are going purely for value or some personal enjoyment as well. As far as value, many people are trading out big tubs for larger showers, sometimes including dual showerheads. But if you prefer to have a tub, then go ahead with it. Remodeling the master bath will also typically include updating flooring, lighting, fixtures, vanities, and the toilet.
Expanded Closet Space
In addition to a larger master bath, the other feature desired by homeowners is an expanded closet. Expanding your closet provides multiple benefits, including increased storage and movement space. It allows you to store your clothes and other belongings in a more visible place where you do not have to dig for them. Think you don’t have enough room to be expanding a closet? Well, consider all the possible options. For those who have an unused room adjoining the master bedroom, you could break down the wall between and expand the space.
Of course, updated furniture is almost always included in a master bedroom renovation. Time to ditch that old and worn bed frame or dresser. Or perhaps, the current bed frame is antique or new and you want the rest of the furniture to follow that theme. Whatever the case, updating the furniture in your master bedroom can really bring the space together.
Flooring in a master bedroom tends to get worn down easily since you spend a lot of time in there. What type of flooring you decide to go with can depend on personal preference and, if you want to sell, what looks good on the market. Many people like to go with hardwood or faux hardwood because it looks great and is the easiest to maintain. But carpet is often a good choice to consider when it comes to master bedrooms, primarily because of comfort. A master bedroom is the place you head to relax and sleep. It is typically more enjoyable to take your socks off and have your feet meet soft carpet, rather than cold, hard floors.
The Importance of Lighting
Not near enough importance is placed on lighting when it comes to home renovation and resale value. The lighting of a room can be the difference between a beautiful treat to the eyes and a dull room. You may have the greatest furniture and linens, but it can easily be taken down a notch by not being shown in the right lighting.
