Home renovating doesn’t have to be a long and arduous process. In fact, renovating can be a lot of fun once you know where to start and have support, and the results are always so worth it. Creating your dream primary bedroom can provide a comfortable atmosphere to retreat to at the end of a long day, as well as a space for inspiration, expression, and play. If you’re looking to renovate, a home renovation contractor can provide some direction, especially if you don’t know where to start. Until then, feel free to use some our most popular renovation tips for primary bedrooms:

1. Transform your ensuite primary bathroom

One of the most common requests from couples looking to renovate their bedroom is a remodelled primary ensuite bathroom. High end bathrooms are also one of the most common things homebuyers look for when buying a new home. Luckily, it’s easy to turn your primary bathroom into a spa. Start with in-floor heating, steam showers, double sinks, or a free-standing tub! If you’re looking for ideas you could complete more easily in a weekend, try tiling your shower or purchasing new handles for the bathroom cabinet. They might not all be easy changes to implement, but even one can dramatically elevate the feel of the bathroom.

2. Upgrade your closet space

It’s everyone’s dream to have a walk-in closet, especially when sharing closet space with a partner. Avoid petty arguments and spilling towers of clothing with a closet large enough to comfortably contain all of your clothing. If you’re feeling adventurous and have the space, expand your closet and create a changing room by adding a kitchenette or seating area inside. Most homebuyers agree, nothing feels more luxurious than a dressing room inside a primary suite.

3. Create a space for hygge

When the temperature dips in Vancouver and the rain starts to pour, it’s important to have a cozy corner to retreat to. Add a gas or wood-burning fireplace, wool throw, and feather duvet to the bedroom and you’re set for the winter. Be sure to include a lounger or sectional near the fireplace for meditation, reading, or simply relaxing. If a fireplace in the bedroom isn’t quite your speed, try opting for a connected den instead. Fireplace or not, a space to stay warm and feel cozy is necessary with our long and dark winters. Be sure to keep a shelf full of books close by!

4. An outdoor balcony

With many homeowners living in cities, it can be difficult to find a space to connect with the outdoors. Especially in a city with such little sun, it’s important to create as little friction as possible between you and the outside world. Despite many homeowners desiring exactly this, many primary bedrooms don’t come with an outdoor patio. However, there are ways around this! Whether it’s a romantic balcony attached to a primary suite or a private garden outside a first floor bedroom, many home renovators are finding creative ways to reconnect to the outdoors.

5. Move your office outside the bedroom

During the pandemic, many found themselves working from their bed and bedroom. Not only does this make it difficult to “turn off” at the end of the day, but it can wreak havoc on your sleep and family life. By creating an office space outside your bedroom, you’re not only improving your mental wellbeing but also opening up a wealth of space that can be converted into a walk-in closet, seating area, a yoga and meditation space, or whatever else you desire. Who knows, maybe space itself is all you need to finally have the primary bedroom of your dreams.
