The bedrooms in your home should feel warm and welcoming. If you (or your guests) don’t feel that way about bedrooms in your home, undergoing a bedroom remodel might be a good idea
To assist in your bedroom remodel, here are 9 bedroom remodel ideas. Some of these ideas will be DIY friendly, and others might need a contractor’s touch to reshape the space fully.
Whatever your skill level, we hope these bedroom remodel ideas are useful for inspiration and mood boarding.
Bedroom Remodels That Pay Off
Many homeowners add-on to their bedrooms because they need a change and want to create a more comfortable environment in their home.
It’s also important that your bedroom remodel pays off in the future in terms of resale value. Spending a significant amount of money on a big project and not getting any of the money back when you go to sell your home can be a big disappointment. Any time you add to your home, you should be able to get some of that investment back.
To ensure you get the ROI you expect on a remodeling project, be careful not to overbuild within your neighborhood.
Some homes built beyond the value of neighboring homes will be harder to sell or can possibly hit a market cap. Before undergoing a large remodeling project, be sure to have your home appraised. You’ll need to know if it’s worth adding on to or renovating. Most times, your contractor or a realtor can help you with this process.
Here are 9 bedroom remodel ideas for your home!
1 Transforming a Bedroom into a Master Suite
A master suite is even better than a normal bedroom. The perfect master suite incorporates a number of the below ideas, including luxury bedding, a seating area, a large walk-in closet, a beautiful spa-like bathroom, and more.
If you’re looking to go all out, then a master suite is the right choice for you.
2 Improved Mood with New Lighting
Mood lighting is a great feature to add to your bedroom remodel (or a new kitchen layout for that matter!). Whether it’s installing dimmers so that you can set the mood, or adding a chandelier or light fixture over your bed. Lighting can be a relatively quick way to add a new feel to your bedroom. Not only is light practical, but it really makes or breaks the vibe of a bedroom If you have a decent room already but need it to feel a bit more elegant, consider getting creative with lighting.
3 New Flooring
In any remodeling project, flooring is a popular thing to change. Instead of installing carpet again, consider hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are a great addition to any room, and they go a long way for taking a bedroom to the next level. If you feel that hardwood floors will make the room feel too cold, consider adding decorative rugs, particularly under the bed itself.
4 Character and Decor Changes
Adding character and decor, such as a new bed frame, house plants, rugs, etc., allows you to create a new bedroom design without fully remodeling. For some, remodeling either doesn’t make sense for the house they’re in or they don’t have the money. Doing fun things with decor is a great way to mix it up and add to the space.
5 New Bedroom Paint Colors
Along the same vein of decor is changing up the paint colors. New colors breathe fresh life into a space without spending a fortune. Look into recent trends and see what interests you or what you think would match the decor you’re using. We wouldn’t recommend going crazy with wild colors as that could impact the resale value of you home, but a good accent here or there can make a big difference.
6 Adding Drawers, Shelves, or Dressers
Adding shelving, dressers, and drawers not only saves space but also makes for a gorgeous room. Not many people can say they don’t like the idea of a shelving unit. You can use it for books, decor, clothes, knickknacks, or whatever else you think would utilize the space well. An added benefit of shelves is storage. If this isn’t a primary bedroom you can use the extra space to get organized!
7 Add a Seating Area
A bedroom with a seating area becomes an escape from the business of the rest of the house. It’s a place where you can rest, read, and reflect on your day. This seating area could come in the form of a simple corner chair, a sofa, or a recliner. Choose what makes you feel most comfortable and at home.
8 Create a Cozy Reading Area
Like a seating area, a reading area offers plenty of opportunities for getting away from the craziness of life. A great way to do this with a remodel is by adding a reading nook in a window. These types of nooks are gorgeous and add to the ambiance of a room. If reading isn’t your thing, you could tweak it to fit your creative needs – it doesn’t have to be exclusively for reading.
9 Add a Walk-In Closet
Walk-in closets are typically something you only have in a master bedroom, but we figured it would be worth adding here. Walk in closets allow you to keep all of your personal clothing and items that you don’t want in your bedroom tucked away. Not only do they help you keep everything organized, but they also help your bedroom always feel clean and neat.
