Renovating The Much Maligned Bedroom
Whenever one considers renovating the house, the first things that come to mind are places like the kitchen and the bathroom, or the deck outside which one can consider for deck extensions. One of the places that many people overlook in their renovation is the bedroom. Every time there are renovations, there have to be alternative arrangements for sleeping and relaxing. Many people consider their bedrooms that sacred part of the house that they cannot let anyone into for renovations. It is the peaceful place that they relax in and forget about the stresses of the day. However, it is for this very reason that bedroom renovations are a wise choice.
One of the aspects of the bedroom that might need changing is the storage. With an ever growing wardrobe, one can opt to increase the size of their wardrobe- the physical storage one. A wardrobe full of shoes and clothes that they are crammed on the hangers or some shoes fall out is never a welcome sight. If the room is big enough, one might consider partitioning it and leaving some space for another wardrobe. If there is enough space, a separate dressing room can be ideal. It is convenient and adds value to the house.
Adding a private en-suite bathroom in the house is another step that will definitely add value to the house. This however depends on the amount of space available for the expansion. In a family setting, the morning bathroom queue is often very problematic. Having one’s own private bathroom in the master bedroom reduces the stress of having to rush to be first to the bathroom in the morning. There are many options style wise. One can keep it simple with just a shower, or add a bathtub to make it more luxurious. The most common color choice is white. One can add one of those louvre windows to add to the style.
The windows are another place that might require renovations. The in thing today is the use of bi-fold and replacement windows. Bi-fold windows refer to those windows that fold against each other. In the past, these window systems could only contain a pair of windows. However, today improvements in technology and various other innovations mean one of these windows can contain as much as 6 or seven windows. They are designed to open either upwards or downwards. Their locking systems allow one to open or close as many of them as they deem necessary.
The use of these windows is mainly to improve the ventilation and lighting situation in the bedroom, and in many other areas in the house. A sliding doors replaced with one of these doors will mean more space at the width of the door. This gives a general feel of an increase in spaciousness. In the kitchen, for instance, they will improve the ventilation making it a more enjoyable pace to work in. they can make any cramped and crowded room feel spacious and comfortable. The beauty about them is that one can have as much privacy as they need.
