5 Facts About Remodeling Your Bedroom

Bedroom remodeling facts

Remodeling any room in your home can be a monumental task. Sometimes you may even need to move out while it is done. But what about remodeling a bedroom? Most of the time when you think home remodel the first thing you think is a kitchen or maybe a bathroom. However, homeowners do remodel their bedrooms as well.

Since it is a less common remodeling project, you may not even know what you are getting yourself into. That is where we come in. Continue reading to learn more.

Bedroom Remodeling Facts

Average Cost

Remodeling anything in your home is not going to be cheap, especially if you hire a contractor. However, hiring a professional has its benefits. There are many unknowns that are found when a home is being remodeled and if you are doing it yourself then you may not know how to deal with the problems you find.

That being said, the average cost of a bedroom remodel can fall somewhere in the neighborhood of $8000. This will depend on where you live, who you hire, the size of your bedroom, and what you want to do.

How Much You Should Spend

The average cost is something that is taken by looking at the high end and the low end and then landing somewhere in the middle. But how much should you actually expect to spend? If you go based on the average cost, you need to also add about 15 percent to the top for the unseen surprises that are lurking.

How much you spend should also be based on the value of your home. You should not spend more than about three percent of your home’s value on your bedroom remodel. For example, if your home is worth $175,000 then you wouldn’t want to spend more than $5,250 on your bedroom remodel.

Resale Considerations

While you might not be planning on moving anytime soon there are no guarantees. Everything you do should, of course, be based on your taste but you also should consider trend and resale.

A remodel can increase the value of your home but how much it increases will decrease over time. Trends change and things become outdated. If you are remodeling your bedroom you need to consider if you will be staying in your home for at least five years or if there is a possibility of selling within that time period.

If the remodel is for the specific purpose of selling your home then you should appeal to the largest group of people. Larger closets and attached bathrooms are the best sellers when it comes to bedrooms.

A Window is a Must

By law, a bedroom has to have a window so the remodel can not remove the window. It is important to keep this in mind. If you have to hire a contractor then they should know this. If they recommend removing the window it is time to find another professional.

Time Frame For Remodel

Any remodeling project will take time. How much time it takes does depend on a few variables. Such as who you hire and how many projects they have going, your budget, the surprises we talked about, and the difficulty of what you want to be done.
