First it was the family room where everyone converged after a day of work and school. More recently, the kitchen started being the most used room of the house. However, a new trend is emerging that you might want to take notice of – hanging out in the bedrooms. It isn’t just a case of everyone heading to their own “oasis” for video games either. It isn’t uncommon for a family to curl up in the master bedroom king-size bed for a night of television shows or movies with a bowl of popcorn and the family pet. If your family is gravitating toward more time spent in one or more of your home’s bedrooms, it might be a good idea to consider bedroom renovations. Here’s a few things you’ll want to include:
- Extra electrical work. More electronics means an overload on the circuit that was originally designed for a couple lamps and an alarm clock. Have an electrician install a dedicated circuit for the television and other electronics as well as put in the wiring for cable and Internet. You could also go all the way with surround-sound wiring and some lighting ideal for watching television.
- Create a true master suite. If you have an older home, you may not have an actual master suite. Having some extra space for storage, as well as a handy bathroom, could make your retreat a bit more comfortable and appealing – and reduce the time for bathroom breaks! Adding another bathroom so you have two master suites isn’t a bad idea either and can improve the value of your home.
- Enlarge the room. If the idea of that king-size bed is great but you lack the space for one, consider enlarging the room either by taking a few feet from an adjoining room that is rarely used or doing a home addition.
