Where you spend so much of your time


  • They say it is about 1/3rd of your life in the bedroom – most likely sleeping of course – and other activities that build a good relationship.
  • But there are two important points you need to consider.
  • 1) you need to have a bedroom design that you like and enjoy – with enough closet space, decorative furniture, and the right lighting, flooring and decor.
  • 2) you need to have a mattress, bed frame and other support mechanisms to help you sleep soundly through the night.
  • Why these two points – because if you spending ~1/3 of your life in bed, you want to make it the best ~1/3rd of your life.
  • Use the step-by-step below to get the process going.

Step 1: Analyze the Numbers

The numbers include the estimated costs, home value assessment, financing costs, and other related calculations.

Step 2: Collect Ideas

The 2nd step for planning a summer bedroom renovation is deciding what you would like to do.

Will it be –

  • expanding the room area,
  • adding a walk-in closet,
  • replacing the furniture,
  • installing a ceiling fan,
  • trying out new floors,
  • re-decorating,
  • or something else.

Step 3: Plan the Needed Specs

Step 3 is sketching your ideas on paper (or digitally) and developing the spec plan.

The spec plan determines what type of bedroom materials and design considerations that will be needed. It will also contain the product specifications for each bedroom remodeling element.

You will use the spec plan and architectural design to bid the project out to a contractor.

Step 4: Find a Contractor

Step 4 is finding and negotiating the contract with a bedroom contractor or interior designer.

Give your remodeling ideas and specs to a contractor for review and bid analysis. Use the local network (aligned with HomeAdvisor) to find the right contractor for your project.

Step 5: Financing Your Project

Step 5 is arranging financing once you selected the contractor and finalized the contract for your project.

Using the equity value in your home is one of the best financing option for a bedroom make-over. Start with a home equity line of credit or use the bank equity program.

Other options may include cash-out refinancing, personal savings, and/or financing from home improvement contractors.

Step 6: Manage the Project

Step 6 is where the project begins.

It starts with setting up the work area, removing everything that needs to be replaced, installing internet access and electrical if needed, putting in the final touches, etc.

It also means working with the contractor, managing the project, and getting the remodeling project inspected before releasing any funds.
