Why would you remodel your master bedroom? Maybe you want to update it with a modern color scheme so it’ll feel like a brand new space? Perhaps you’d want to make it more conducive to sleeping, such that you feel more comfortable and relaxed in it? And is it time to replace the furniture with stuff you actually want, rather than utilizing stuff given to you years ago while in college or “first starting out” in life?
Master bedroom remodels can be tailored to your specific needs. It’s a good idea to come up with a list of wants and needs to share with your builder. He or she can then go down the list and explain what each change entails– is it possible to do it? How long would the project take? How much money would such-and-such cost?
A Room Worth Your Time
Basically, people spend a third of their lives in bedrooms, mostly sleeping there. For most, it’s their sanctuary from the rest of the world. In some cases, it’s one of the few places in the home to get away from kids, elderly parents, and/or “the help.” Bedrooms are typically the most private rooms in a home, rarely seen by visitors. Therefore, builders are often given some unique requests because “few people will ever see it, so I can do whatever I want in there!” Why not?!
Practical and Logistical Reasons
Practically-speaking, master bedroom remodels typically are done to increase closet space (because people have so much stuff these days), add a nearby laundry area (so that washing and drying clothing is convenient), and/or make the room more user-friendly, especially for those who are approaching their senior years.
Remodeling a bedroom might entail adding ambient/task lighting, updating skylights or fans, installing low or no-clearance thresholds on walk-in showers (with bench seats and grab bars), and/or raising the heights of vanities/toilets in the attached bathroom.
