Essential Tips for Remodeling Your Bedroom

 


 

Remodeling your bedroom can be extremely exciting and exhilarating. However, if you’re going the DIY route, it can also be exceedingly stressful. There are countless unknowns in the remodeling process. Will you get it done in your desired timeline? Where are you going to sleep in the meantime? What if you discover an electrical problem? Is it safe to do a DIY remodel? What if you mess something up?

 

 

There is a lot that can go wrong while remodeling your bedroom, but there are a lot of easy ways to make it go right. Making sure the process is smooth and successful depends a lot on how much research you do before you begin.

 

 

To help you with this remodeling journey, here is some advice to keep in mind:

 

 

Paying for It

 

 

Before you can even begin your remodel, you need to figure out how you’re going to pay for it. Of course, the best way to pay for a remodel is with cash, but this is not always possible. While we would all like to have that much cash on hand, many of us do not, and must look for other ways to pay for our remodels.

 

 

If you need some assistance paying for your project, a personal loan is a good option, and you can get one from a variety of lenders, including your bank or even credit card company. Bedroom remodels typically have a good return on investment (ROI). This means that you are likely to make your money back when you sell your home, especially if you are remodeling the master bedroom.

 

 

Because of this promising ROI, personal loans are usually an acceptable option. Personal loans typically have a lower interest rate than credit cards. However, you do need to make sure that you get your loan from a reputable lender. The Better Business Bureau says to first investigate loans from traditional lenders, such as banks and credit unions.

 

 

Focus on Storage and Organization

 

 

Perhaps nothing is more important in a bedroom than storage. You store a lot of stuff in your bedroom, including clothes, books, shoes, and various odds and ends. When you’re remodeling, remember to consider where you’re going to put all of your stuff.

 

 

You might want to consider installing shelves, a shoe rack or even building drawers to go under your bed. Apartment Therapy also recommends taking as much advantage of your closet as you can. Installing shelves and drawers can help you maximize your storage space.

 

 

Don’t Underestimate Painting

 

 

Painting is one of the easiest ways to transfer a space quickly and with little effort. No matter how many amazing adjustments you make to your space, choosing an inappropriate paint color can throw the whole space off. Because of this, we highly recommend researching possible paint colors extensively.

 

 

The paint color you choose should match your current decorations and furnishings while also creating a soothing space. Shades of white, grey, and blue are usually the best options, though others might be suitable, depending on your particular taste and furnishings.

 

 

Invest in Nice Wall Art

 

 

Wall art can uplift a space and transform your bedroom. While some might be expensive, it can make or break an area. We recommend choosing something you like that also goes with the space. You don’t want to select a painting that doesn’t go with any of your other decorations, but you also don’t want to choose a picture you hate just because it matches.

 

 

You should measure accurately before purchasing any paintings, of course. The last thing you want to do is buy a piece of wall art that is too large or small for your bedroom.

 

 

Remodeling your bedroom is both exciting and stressful. It is important not to forget the small things, like wall art and paint colors. Also, don’t lose sight of your bedroom’s purpose. Aesthetics are important, but so is function.
