Updating your master bedroom can not only create a personal retreat you look forward to coming home to each day, it can add value to your home. Taking on this type of project can be daunting, but HGTV Remodels' experts can help.
You may choose to remodel your master bedroom for any number of reasons, says Valerie Steil, ASID, of Marc T. Nielsen Interiors in Valparaiso, Ind. You may be tired of your current color scheme. You may be facing a change in your life situation. You may be looking forward to staying in your home as you get older, and you want to prepare for any physical limitations you face as you get older. You may simply want more space.
"Sometimes the need for change is more emotional in nature, the loss of a partner, either to divorce or death," Steil says. "It could be a way to remove any memories or influence of your partner's former spouse."
"Remodeling typically occurs when one is not able to function comfortably in the space, or the aesthetics cause negative feelings instead of positive ones," says Claire E. Tamburro, ASID, a Washington, D.C.-based interior designer.
