Are you thinking of remodeling your bedroom but don’t know where to start? Remodeling a bedroom can be one of the most enjoyable ways to give your home a new lease on life. However, we know that any remodel can be daunting task that can quickly get out of hand. You need to consider your personal style, your budget, which flooring you want, your overall long-term goals, and of course, timing. It sounds like a lot but don’t worry––our list of 5 things to consider before starting your bedroom remodeling will set you on the right path.
What’s your favorite color? What atmosphere do you want to create in your new bedroom? If you’re not sure, take a moment to browse Pinterest and check out our latest blog post about interior design trends. Once you have an idea of what you want, consider the latest trends and how these fit in with your personal style. Consider how trends may evolve in the future and whatever happens, choose what makes you happy. It is your bedroom, after all.
One of the most important steps in a successful home remodel is to estimate the costs. Currently, there are lots of different types of online cost estimators available to help you get an idea of what your project might cost, but one quick and easy way to calculate the costs is by doing it the old fashioned way. Consider the size of your bedroom, the scope of the work and the cost of every element required, and the cost of hiring a contractor (if it’s not a DIY remodel). All of this will impact how much money you will need to set aside. If the overall cost is out of your budget, are there things that you could sacrifice on or put off to a later date?
Wide plank floors
Along with the color of the walls, the flooring sets the tone for any room. So it’s important to make the right decision. Enter, wide plank floors. Wide plank flooring is made up of planks 6 to 20 inches in width. These planks do wonders to liven up a room and make you feel more at home. They even create the illusion of a bigger bedroom, so no need to break down walls to extend your space. They’re also faster to install than other wood flooring. Plus the wide variety of styles can accommodate your budget and your personal tastes!
Are you planning to stay in your home forever? If not, you should plan your redesign in such a way that it can increase the resale value of your home. This means, try to use neutral colors and mainstream decor to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. The worst thing you could do is renovate in a fashion that makes the bedroom unusable or unattractive to most of the current market. If you are planning to stay a long time then you can personalize your bedroom to your heart’s content.
Timing is everything! After all, if your remodeling project is not completed in time, it is likely to go over budget. Try to create a realistic schedule for your project and remember to leave room for error. Start planning at least four weeks in advance to make sure that you and your wallet love the final result!
