Did you know that we spend almost a third of our lives sleeping? This makes your bedroom one of the most used rooms in your home. A bedroom renovation or remodel can help you create the dreamy sleep space or relaxing oasis you need. A master bedroom goes even further, giving you a spa-like bath and maybe even walk-in closets for extra storage. Whether you are looking to remodel and expand or update your existing floorplan with a new style, look no further than Red House for a Rhode Island bedroom renovation that is 100% You.
When you start to brainstorm and plan your new bedroom, think of what you will use the space for and who will be using it. Will it be for one or two people? A master bedroom, a well-appointed guest room, or a kids zone? Some people do nothing but sleep and get dressed in their bedrooms. However, many bedrooms do double-duty. With more and more people working from home right now, you may use your bedroom as a home office. Or maybe you like to watch TV before bed and an entertainment set up will be necessary. How you will use your bedroom will determine your priorities for your renovation.
With any big change to your home, it’s important to understand the terminology so you can walk into each design meeting prepared. One of the biggest points of confusion is the difference between a renovation and a remodel. The key difference? A renovation keeps the layout of your space the same while a renovation will change the space by removing or adding walls or changing the height of a ceiling.
In a bedroom renovation, you might upgrade your flooring, lighting, and wall treatments. In a bedroom remodel, you could add on an addition, expand your bedroom, add a master bath, new closets, or open up a low profile to expose a vaulted ceiling.
Sometimes all you need is a style refresh and a renovation. But, if you decide that small changes are not enough, or that you want a structural change then pursue a remodel.
For each type of bedroom, there are common measurements associated with each one. The smallest bedroom allowed by code is 70 square feet (or a 7-foot by 10-foot room). Normally, you will find that a small guest bedroom is usually about 10 x 10 feet. When considering a bedroom renovation or remodel, you most likely won’t be looking for the smallest option available. Most bedrooms normally run between 120 and 150 square feet. Master bedrooms are usually anything over 150 square feet but are usually around 200 square feet.
