Based on what type of repair is chosen, the list of necessary works will be different.
Development of the project
Whatever the scale of repair, it is first of all necessary for to design its design project .And in order to do this correctly, it is important to pre-measure to measure : the length, width and height of the bedroom, the size of the window and door openings, the distance from the walls to the doors and the window. If there are arches or any other architectural elements, their main parameters should also be measured in order to be taken into account when drafting a project.
There are several ways to develop a future bedroom project. The easiest, accessible to each of us, - is a freehand drawing with respect to the scale of .You can work a little and to master the simple program , and then you can present the interior of the bedroom in three-dimensional form. Many of these programs are very simple and can easily be studied in a couple of hours. An alternative option - to entrust the development of the project to an experienced designer , who can take into account all your wishes.
The bedroom project should give as complete a picture as possible of the future placement of furniture and lighting, decor items, bedroom color scheme. When planning the future interior, it is important not to use too much furniture, especially if the room is small. For free movement around the bedroom, it is important to leave aisles with a width of at least 80 cm.
As for the choice of the interior style , it is important not only to choose from your own preferences, but also from the characteristics of the room. So, if the bedroom is small, then the best style is minimalism or high-tech. This room involves the use of only the most necessary items in it, the room will not be cluttered, and therefore it will be perceived as more free. For spacious bedrooms, you can choose absolutely any style: from always fashionable classics to Provence, boho or country.

Also at this stage, you need to decide which stages of work can be carried out independently, and which are better to be entrusted to specialists.
Preparing the bedroom for repair
If the repair is overhaul, then you need to take out all the furniture and furniture from the bedroom, and even for cosmetic repairs it is better to free the room from all things, and those that are difficult to remove are better covered with film. Now you can proceed to the dismantling of unnecessary partitions, if planned, and the old finish.
First, it is better to to remove the floor plinth, then proceed to remove all the finishing materials. Most often in the bedroom are used wallpaper: they are easy to remove with a spatula, and if you have any difficulties, you can wet them. To remove the paint from the surface of the walls or ceiling, it is better to use solvents, but you need to work with them very carefully. If the ceiling was just whitewashed, you will have to tinker a bit: first, wash off the material with warm water, then remove the upper layer with a spatula, and then wash off the remnants with a damp sponge.
As a rule, there are no problems with dismantling the flooring: linoleum, laminate and parquet, which are customarily used in a given room, can be easily removed.
When you got rid of all the old finishes, it's time to replace the wiring if this is included in your plans. You need to rely on a plan of lighting in the bedroom and the location of equipment in it. You need to decide in advance what type of lighting will be used, whether sconces or floor lamps will be installed, where it is better to place sockets. If at this stage to show negligence and frivolity, then in the future, you can face great inconvenience and, at a minimum, the constant need to use extension cords.
The elements of the old electrical wiring in the wall must be insulated, and the new cable should be laid clearly along the vertical and horizontal lines.

After the old finish has been dismantled, it is impossible to immediately begin the finishing works, because the surfaces are far from perfect. For leveling of walls, will suit the plaster mix: it is better to level the entire surface of them, although some experts allow the composition to be used only in places with the deepest cracks. An alternative to dirty and relatively long plastering works is leveling the walls with the help of drywall, by the way, it is not necessary for the bedroom to choose moisture resistant drywall. Its installation is fast and clean, and the result is an ideally flat surface suitable for any further finishing. The only negative is the reduction of the usable area, therefore this option is not very suitable for a small bedroom.
The cracks in the ceiling of the are better sealed with a plaster mortar, and then cleaned and primed. If you plan to paint or whiten the ceiling, then you should approach it very carefully - its surface should be perfect. If the defects on the ceiling are such that their elimination takes a lot of time and effort, then tension and suspension structures can be used.
Now for the floor .In any case, it should be perfectly smooth. A cement-sand screed is carried out, and if there is already one, but there are still significant irregularities, then a thin layer of a self-leveling floor can be used. For the bedroom, you can provide a system of warm floors, in the winter to get out of bed was as comfortable as possible. It is better not to lay under floor heating under furniture, that is why it is so important to decide in advance on exactly what will stand and where.
