This house a 3-bedroom two story house. All the bedrooms are upstairs. Ales updated our two guest bedrooms completely, by himself. The remodeling work consisted of the following:
- Popcorn ceiling removal
- New paint on walls and ceiling
- New paint on all the old doors
- Replacing closet sliding doors
- Replacing carpet floor with engineered hardwood
- Replacing baseboards
We painted these bedrooms in grey as well, just one tone lighter than the bathroom's paint. This way when you see the bathroom from the bedroom, there is a level of shade difference that gives the whole space a nice visual. For wall paint, we used Behr from Home Depot.
For the floor, we loved Floor & Decor's Dark Horse Birch Smooth Locking Engineered Hardwood. It's super affordable, easy to install, and has a very nice, modern dark shade. Just a tip, if you are planning to install wood floor yourself, give click-and-lock (or floating) option serious consideration, this will make your life easier, as there is no need for nailing or gluing.
In addition, since these bedrooms are upstairs, to minimize noise (those who live in multi-story homes or apartments can relate), we installed a layer of Eco Ultra Quiet underlayment, also from Floor & Decor. We recently came across this very helpful article How To Soundproof Floorboards on Happy DIY Home. Sharing the article here for those who can relate with us on the noise issue living in multi-story homes or apartments.
We absolutely loved the final updated and modern look of these bedrooms. Check out the pictures below.
