If you're planning on remodeling your house, you're probably spending a lot of time thinking up ideas for your kitchen and bathrooms. Your bedroom might not get much thought, but considering you spend several hours in there each day, you might want to give it a makeover too. Here are some ideas for remodeling your bedroom.
Have New Windows Installed
If your bedroom doesn't have much light, consider having larger windows installed. You could have them installed high on the wall so you don't have to worry about privacy, or you could even have a skylight put in. If there's a fantastic view from your window of city lights or a nature scene, then larger windows can allow you a good view which can aid your ability to relax and drift to sleep during the day or night. One main reason for having new windows installed is to improve their insulating quality. Well-insulated windows control the climate for a comfortable sleeping position and they also muffle outside noise, which can help you sleep better.
Consider New Flooring
Carpet is popular in bedrooms because it feels comfy on your feet. However, carpet can be difficult to keep clean and free from allergens. It also lasts so long that it can look dated. A better solution might be to have new wood or vinyl plank flooring installed. Planks add a classic, luxurious look to the room. You can add a large plush area rug under the bed so your feet step onto the ultimate comfort in the mornings. An area rug can be changed out often and more affordably so you can change the décor in the room when you want.
Think About Closet Organization
While you might not be able to change the layout of your bedroom much or its size, you can totally revamp your closet. You can have a custom closet built so you can control the clutter in your room and stay organized. Include drawers, cubbies, and hanging rods so all your clothes stay in the closet and you may be able to eliminate some of your bedroom furniture. By taking out a large dresser, you can move in a comfy chair or sofa for lounging and reading.
Consider Radiant Floor Heating
Radiant floor heating is an option to consider for your entire house, but it is especially nice in bedrooms. You'll never have to worry about a cold floor and your room will always feel comfortable in cold weather. This could be a nice feature if you have a baby or small kids that spend a lot of time in your room too.
Choose Wall Coverings
While you want colors on the walls that help promote relaxation and sleep, you'll have several options to choose from. You could even consider covering the walls in padded fabric to further insulate the room from outside sound. If outdoor noise is particularly bothersome, talk to your contractor about adding insulation to the exterior wall of your bedroom. A quiet room with low lighting and soothing wall colors helps induce peaceful slumber.
