A den to bedroom conversion isn’t all that big a deal. At least, if you’re handy with tools and have some carpentry chops. Okay, it’s not for everybody. But, that being said, it’s not exactly as demanding as a total kitchen or bath remodel. In other words, you’ll need to have some level of contracting skills but you don’t need extensive experience.
Den to Bedroom Conversion Tips
If you need an extra bedroom to accommodate guests, family, or because you want to sell your home and list it with another bedroom, you can gain one without having to go through the time, effort, and serious cost of building a room addition.
Decorate your den to serve multiple purposes, such as turning it into an extra bedroom if you’re short on sleeping space or a temporary retreat if you have guests coming. Decorate the space with the primary function of the room serving as your guide. For example, privacy will be more important for a semi-permanent bedroom. --Hunker.com
If you have a den in your home, you can easily convert it into a bedroom over just a couple or few weekends. What’s more, unlike a basement clean out and conversion, it’s already finished and does not require insulation, drywall, flooring, and climate control.
How to Do a Den Bedroom Conversion in Drummond
In most states in the country, a room must have certain components in order to legally be qualified as a bedroom. Once done, your home will be worth a little more, though you will lose common area space, you will gain a functional bedroom. Here’s how to convert a den into a bedroom:
- Empty the den completely. You'll necessarily need to empty out the room of all contents, no matter how small. Take out all furniture, decor, and anything else that's in the room to have a blank space to work with. It will also help to keep your furniture and decor free of dust and debris as you work to transform your den into a bedroom.
- Frame-in a closet. Next, you'll need to create the framework for a closet (if the room isn't already so equipped). If you don’t have any dead space, frame the closet against a wall, out from a corner. Remember, it doesn’t have to be large, just enough to provide a little storage and shelving.
- Finish the closet. Hang drywall to close-in the closet. When the drywall is hung, you can install shelves or a clothing rack inside. Then, install a door and paint it to match the walls.
That's really about it. You'll have a fully functioning bedroom to use for many years to come. And, you can easily undo it, should the need arise down the road.
