Dear PoP – Should We Combine Small Bedrooms into a Large one?

“Dear PoP,

My husband and I have been working on our Petworth fixer-upper for six months now and it’s decision time. We have two medium size bedrooms and two small size bedrooms upstairs (with two baths too). We are trying to decide whether we should combine one of the medium bedrooms with a smaller one to make a master suite (with en suite bathroom), or keep the walls as they are as we renovate. What’s a better investment over time for the value of our house? Four bedrooms or three bedrooms including master suite?

Would be curious to see what you and your readers think.”

Great question! I’d vote for combining one of the small bedrooms into a master suite. But I’m looking forward to hearing how folks think that will affect the property value.
