The master bedroom is one of the most essential rooms in your home. Yet, it is often the last one you can get around to updating. It’s the only room that you start and end your day in. So why not make sure it’s exactly what you want it to be?
If you are considering upgrading or renovating your master bedroom, there are a few questions you should ask yourself to ensure it turns out perfect!
- What are my future home goals?
Most homeowners find themselves caught between two futures:
- This is my forever home. I plan to stay in my house long-term and create a home that is truly mine.
- I plan to sell my house eventually, so I will invest in upgrades to help the home sell for top dollar in the market.
While you may switch between those two options in different seasons of life, it is essential to know your homeownership goals before starting a master bedroom remodel. Once you know how you are moving forward with your plans, you can make decisions that align with your desired outcomes more effectively.
For example, if you know you will live in your home for the foreseeable future, you may want to remodel your master bedroom with amenities that you desire rather than upgrade to match current home trends.
Want that expanded walk-in closet? Built-ins for your books and photographs? A bright accent wall in your favorite color? Go for it!
2. Will I need (or want) to add more space?
Remodeling your master bedroom is more than just moving items around and switching up colors on the wall. Many homeowners choose to remodel their master bedroom by adding extra square footage to the room.
Extra footage can be reclaimed from other parts of the house surrounding the master bedroom. Or you can take out an exterior wall and extend the wall further. Not only can adding more space expand your available room and give you more flexibility, but it will also help increase your potential property value as you add to your home’s overall living area.
By expanding your square footage, you can also take advantage of the opportunity to add extra elements such as larger closets, a separate sitting room, new lighting, fixtures, and furniture to the room that wasn’t available prior.
3. How do I choose the best remodeling contractor?
Before starting any major renovation in your home, it is always advisable to partner with a professional and skilled home construction company. Hiring an experienced local contractor is the best way to ensure that every aspect of your master bedroom remodel occurs smoothly and according to schedule.
An experienced contractor with great reviews will have the necessary experience and skills to help you make the best remodeling decisions to maximize your unique space. They will also come licensed and bonded – ensuring that any mistakes or unexpected problems are covered from day one.
