Kitchen remodels are extremely popular in Western Massachusetts, as are bathroom upgrades. But what surprises many area homeowners is the fact that more and more couples are choosing to upgrade their sleeping quarters by having a master bedroom addition built. Here are the top three reasons why people remodel their master bedroom:
It’s Time for More Space: When you’re home shopping, the size of a master bedroom doesn’t always make it onto the priority list. Especially for families with young children, master bedroom size can be sacrificed to be in the right school district or because the back yard is perfect. However, after a few years of trying to get by with an undersized master bedroom, having a master bedroom addition built in Framingham, MA can provide some much needed extra room.
Mobility Issues: If you’ve been sleeping in a room on the second or third floor, and then develop lower back pain, hip pain, knee pain, or other mobility issues that make climbing the stairs painful, having a master bedroom addition built on the first floor makes going to bed at night pleasant again. If you’re planning on having your current home be where you live out your golden years, paying attention to accessibility makes sense. You’re going to sleep every night!
Because Work Doesn’t Belong in the Bedroom: Lots of people in the Framingham, MA area work a lot. When you bring work home with you, you have to do it somewhere – and more often than not, that means in a room that the kids and pets can’t get to. Making your bedroom do double-duty as a home office might make sense logistically, but it’s hardly restful! Sleep experts recommend keeping all stressful things out of the bedroom, and even the best home office has some element of stress built in. Having a master bedroom addition built means you can use your old bedroom as a home office and keep your new bedroom for more enjoyable activities.
