Home Improvement : Converting 2 Bedrooms into Master Suite Pays

February 04, 1990

Converting two existing bedrooms into a master suite can make an existing home competitive with new construction, according to Remodeling Magazine.

The expected pay back from such a remodeling job averages 79% nationwide.

Experts advise undertaking the project only if the house will still have at least three bedrooms.

An additional bathroom considerably increases the marketability of a home with one or 1 1/2 baths, according to Remodeling Magazine.

Use high-quality materials that are easy to clean. Use lots of mirrors and include ample storage. Skylights brighten interior bathrooms and help to make a small room look larger.
